New in this release:

** Handle existing yet empty lox files properly
meaning, don't actually typeset an empty list of corrections.

avoiding potential typesetting artifacts, reported by Lars Madsen.
** Various internals and documentation improvements.

Get it at the usual place.

Description
===========
FiXme is a collaborative annotation tool for LaTeX documents. Annotating a
document refers here to inserting meta-notes, that is, notes that do not
belong to the document itself, but rather to its development or reviewing
process. Such notes may involve things of different importance levels, ranging
from simple "fix the spelling" flags to critical "this paragraph is a lie"
mentions. Annotations like this should be visible during the development or
reviewing phase, but should normally disapear in the final version of the
document.

FiXme is designed to ease and automate the process of managing collaborative
annotations, by offering a set of predefined note levels and layouts, the
possibility to register multiple note authors, to reference annotations by
listing and indexing etc. FiXme is extensible, giving you the possibility to
create new layouts or even complete "themes", and also comes with support for
AUC-TeX.

FiXme 3.4 is out

I'm happy to announce the next edition of FiXme: version 3.4

New in this release:
** \fixme, \fxerror, \fxwarning and \fxnote are now robust
** Fix incompatibility with KOMA-Script classes when the lox file is inexistent


FiXme provides you with a way of inserting fixme notes in documents. Such notes can appear in the margin of the document, as index entries, in the log file and as warnings on stdout. It is also possible to summarize them in a list, and in the index. When you switch from draft to final mode, any remaining fixme note will be logged, but removed from the document's body. Additionally, critical notes will abort compilation with an informative message. FiXme also comes with support for AUC-TeX.
