    updated actions files won’t overwrite individual user settings.

  • HTTP/1.1 compliant (but not all optional 1.1 features are

  • Support for Perl Compatible Regular Expressions in the
    configuration files, and generally a more sophisticated and

  • Multi-threaded (POSIX and native threads).

  • Auto-detection and re-reading of config file changes.

  • Improved signal handling, and a true daemon mode (Unix).

  • Many smaller new features added, limitations and bugs removed,
    and security holes fixed.

Latexss is a
program that can transform a text file with very minimal
style syntax into a self-contained LaTeX spreadsheet powered
by the fp package. A graphical front-end for the command
line program, Klatexss,

The definitions in the LaTeX spreadsheet can be further used
to produce graphics through the pstricks LaTeX package.
