Changes to Latex in MMD6

Hey again,

since I started compiling in MMD6.0.0, a bibliography is automatically created which clashes with my natbib setup (which worked fine in MMD 5). How can I disable the new biblography settings?

Also was the HTML commenting feature using {!-- --} somehow changed? Some of those don't seem to end up being respected.

And lastly, a couple of meta-data strings seem to be handled differently and don't end up in the .tex export.

Thanks for the support

    Correct -- LaTeX is different.

    1. There are no bibliography settings -- what is different and what would you like it do instead? I can look at it.

    2. Yes -- the "raw" feature is one of the things that I want to revisit for v6 that is not implemented yet:

    3. LaTeX metadata is different -- check out the QuickStart guide for more details. It is much easier to use, but does require changing to the new system.

    Ok. Given that I make heavy use of raw Latex using Regex I will wait with adopting MMD6 until that becomes implemented.

    Thanks for the quick support.

    Sounds good -- I encourage you to weigh in on the issues page:

    I'm not sure what I want to do with this feature, but I know it needs to be better and more flexible. The proper approach could help make converting a single document to more formats even more powerful than it currently is.
