A multilingual environment for LaTeX with Aleph

Mem provides an experimental environment for multilingual and multiscript typesetting with LaTeX in the Aleph typesetting system. Aleph is Unicode-savvy and combines features of Omega and eTeX. With Mem you should be able to typeset Unicode documents mixing several languages and several scripts taking advantage of its built-in OCP mechanism and with a high level interface.

Currently Mem is still under study and development and in its present state is not intended to be a fully functional package. The first experimental code was presented in Tokyo (Japan) in 2001 with the name of Lambda, and after a pause work is again in progress with the new name of Mem and with a major overhaul.

Mem is designed to be capable of following the development of Omega and LaTeX3, and I'm publishing it to encourage other people to think about the ideas behind it and to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of several approachs to the involved problems. The project is now hosted in the public respository to open its development to other people, so feel free to contribute to the project.


Mem is still evolving and the most up-to-date version is available as CVS. However, you can download some milestones in its development via HTTP. None of these releases are stable or fully funcional, so the best choice will be the latest release.
