Summary description:  Fully automated LaTeX document generation

Announcement text:

 1. Correct bug that some variables weren't defined under msys.

 2. Compensate for problems caused by time offset between system
    time on system running latexmk and file times on remote file
    system. (These caused trouble for documents that both are
    compiled under  MiKTeX and use biber.)

 3. Allow optional timeout in pvc mode after a period of inactivity.
    (See documenta tion for -pvctimeout option.)
