LaTeX at CERN (June 2017)

Latest version of TeXLive available on an experimental basis (TeXlive 2017)

In June 2017 the TeX Collection 2017 was released by the international TeX Usergroup TUG. It comprises TeXLive, proTeXt, MacTeX, and a CTAN snapshot. Since there is no formal active LaTeX support at CERN, this version, TeX Live 2017, has been made available at CERN on an as-is basis. The files in the distribution are regularly updated on the CTAN repository sites and these changes are propagated once a month or so onto the CERN repositories.
