Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation

Announcement text:

Improved treatment of detection of whether files (e.g., .log) have been
  generated on current run or are leftover from an earlier run. Code now
  compensates (and diagnoses) time offset between computer running
  latexmk and file server.
Allow placeholder %C in argument to set_tex_cmds, to allow more flexible
  construction of command lines for all *latex.
Fix problems of compatibility with the xr package.
Allow escaping of spaces in names of files in deps files, as needed by
  make. Escaping can be unix-style or nmake-style.
Various bug fixes and corrections, improvements in error and warning
  messages, and corrections to documentation.
