Description Markus 2016-06-24 06:39:25 UTC

TeX Live 2016 was released on 5 June 2016.
Comment 1 Sebastian Pucilowski 2016-06-30 11:01:25 UTC
May we also mark -2015 as stable?
Comment 2 Petr Zima 2016-09-07 18:44:21 UTC
I would appreciate the version bump.  In particular, the version of biblatex-apa package is broken in texlive-2015, because it is incompatible with the supplied version of biblatex.  I had to manually download biblatex-apa-6.8 which works.
Comment 3 Andreas G. 2016-09-26 09:29:51 UTC
Is there any help needed for the version bump?
Comment 4 Rok Kralj 2016-11-14 22:03:31 UTC
I suggest we rename the package to texdead and leave it at 2015 forever.

What is the blocker that is preventing this to happen?

Probably manpower/lack of time.

But it would indeed be nice to have 2016 in the tree.

Could a donation somewhere entice the developers?
Comment 7 Eugene Shalygin 2017-01-07 03:06:56 UTC
Perhaps the maintainer can inform us that there is no plan to update the package and or no work has been done so far? The update task is not a rocket science, but knowing that there might be an almost ready bump does not encourage to start working on this in a local overlay.
Comment 8 Martin von Gagern 2017-01-22 21:56:39 UTC
Can this be closed now that texlive 2016 is in portage?
Comment 9 Coacher 2017-01-23 08:06:49 UTC
Thank you very much!
