Summary description: Fully automated LaTeX document generation

Announcement text:

Check rc files for valid UTF-8; remove initial BOM.
Improve some warnings and messages.
Correctly implement conditional use of biber, to be able to preserve bbl
  file when bib file doesn't exist.  This behavior now matches the
  conditional use of bibtex.
Solve problem that processing times under Windows were reported as zero.
Solve occasional problems caused by granularity of file times when detecting
  files generated during a run of *latex
Configurably change default location of fls file to aux directory, to match
  behavior of recent versions of MiKTeX.
Update documentation especially about aux and output directories.
