Why the interest in
latexmkrc? We've recently had a number of users get in touch to ask how to do certain things with Overleaf, to which our answer has begun: "Firstly, create a custom
latexmkrc file in your project...". Given that this isn't the most intuitive part of LaTeX, and documentation on the web (and examples in particular) is quite sparse, we thought we'd explore it here in a bit more detail.

Why the interest in
Last week we hit an amazing milestone -- the three millionth project was created on Overleaf!
When John and I kicked this all off (as writeLaTeX) just over two and half years ago, we never expected it to grow this fast. Looking at this early screenshot compared to the current editor, it's amazing how little has changed on the surface:
But things have certainly had to scale up on the backend! To celebrate hitting the three million projects mark, and to help give a sense of this scale, we've put together a few other stats about Overleaf we hope you'll find interesting (and maybe a little surprising too!).
LaTeX's versatility makes it a rather handy (and free!) tool for creating various goodies, including monthly calendars. So here's my stab at creating a LaTeX class and template for creating customisable, multilingual monthly calendars, that fit in CD or 3.5" disk jewel cases. Pictures and events can be added, and you can choose any month range for your calendar -- it's not necessary that they begin on January and end on December.
All the latest news and updates from Overleaf, including our new feature releases, new partnerships and upcoming events.
As those of you who've contacted us with support requests in the past few months will have discovered, we now have a team of TeXperts on hand to answer your LaTeX and Overleaf questions. Our two leading TeXperts are Lian Tze Lim and Nicholas Reith, and they've both been doing fantastic work in responding to support requests and producing tutorials and example materials for the community.
So, without further ado, please say a big hello to our two TeXperts!
