Errata and Improvements

Version 1.3

A new node layout for the binary format makes traversing HINT files simpler and faster. This format is used by the hitex program that will be distributed as part of TeX Live 2022. So it will be the first "stable" version.

Version 1.2

This (intermediate) version never made it to the public.

Version 1.1

Version 1.1 added tags to identify languages and changed the format of nodes containing mathematical formulas. It is incompatible with version 1.0.

Version 1.0
