A new release of our linl package for writing LaTeX letters with (R)markdown just arrived on CRAN. linl makes it easy to write letters in markdown, with some extra bells and whistles thanks to some cleverness chiefly by Aaron.
This version now supports a (pdf, png, …) footer along with the already-supported header, thanks to an intiial PR by Michal Bojanowski to which Aaron added nice customization for scale and placement (as supported by LaTeX package wallpaper). I also added support for continued integration testing at Travis CI via a custom Docker RMarkdown container—which is something I should actually say more about at another point.
Here is screenshot of the vignette showing the simple input for some moderately fancy output (now with a footer):
The NEWS entry follows:
Changes in linl version 0.0.4 (2019-10-23)
Continuous integration tests at Travis are now running via custom Docker container (Dirk in #21).
A footer for the letter can now be specified (Michal Bojanowski in #23 fixing #10).
The header and footer options be customized more extensively, and are documented (Aaron in #25 and #26).
