7 Changes in October 2018 release:

9 The main change is that we now offer the manual in a version that
10 is split into separate web pages for each section or subsection.
11 This new version is more host-friendly. To celebrate we have
12 set up a host.
13 https://latexref.xyz
14 We still offer the one-page version.
15 http://latexref.xyz/dev/latex2e.html
16 So you now have an easy-to-remember way to access the reference.
17
18 If you'd like to host a mirror of the manual, whether to have a
19 convenient local reference or to offer a service to the community, we've
20 included instructions at https://latexref.xyz/dev/mirroring.html.

23 including \smash and \phantom.

161 Changes in release 1.6:
162
163 Some minor bug fixes; thanks to Piet van Oostrum and Ralf
164 Fassel for those.
165
166 The node previously named 'List of Commands' is now named 'Command
167 Index' so that the Emacs command Info-index may work. Suggested by Ralf
168 Fassel. 'ltx-help.el' has therefore been updated. You _must_ use the
169 ltx-help.el included in this release with version 1.6 of latex2e.texi.
170 A bug has also been fixed in ltx-help.el; thanks to Kurt Hornik for
171 this.
