I just noticed that the amsmath package was updated lately. Sadly, I am unable to find the package history? texdoc amsmath does not seem to help and the documentation available online seems limited.

    What exactly do you need to know?

  • @JosephWright In the past, the align environment would not exactly line up on the left for instance. See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/26416/… Has this been fixed for instance?

  • Looking at 2.15a the issue with the extra \, persists. But updating typesetting features of amsmath is a delicate topic that does not just affect one or two users. Testing the code from the linked question, i cannot spot any issue.

  • fixing the \, is tricky as you'd need to make it optional or to detect whether a \! correction has already been applied otherwise just removing the "spurious" \, is likely to cause over-printing (or bat least bad spacing) Apr 4, 2016 at 14:02
  • @DavidCarlisle But this could be announced in a changelog file, couldn't it be? I currently have the correction in my files but if you tell me that the issue as been fixed, I will remove it.

The amsmath changelog has always been in the README linked from


so I kept to that for now at least.

changes since 2000 are


2016-03-03 amsmath.dtx 2.15a
     One missing % added to mathstrut handling.

2016-02-20 amsmath.dtx 2.15
     Updates for new \mathchardef handling in luatex
     Fix for \long macros after \dots
     (such as \iff as redefined by this package)

2013-01-14 amsmath.dtx 2.14

    * amsmath.sty 2.14
      -- Minimal changes to make amsmath compatible with stix.sty.
  • ok, sorry, I missed that file.
