Hi All,

After months of work, Karthink and I have prepared a rather large patch-set
completely overhauling the LaTeX preview system. I hope to have a patch set
shortly, but in the mean time it would be good to get some more people testing

To test this feature, please check out the `dev' branch of
<https://git.tecosaur.net/tec/org-mode.git> (it’s the default branch). There are
also some other changes there currently, but I don’t think anything is broken.

You can view the almost-ready path set/diff here:
<https://git.tecosaur.net/tec/org-mode/compare/c8401d2f..6d60738>, see the
ORG-NEWS and org-manual entries to get a bit more of an idea of what’s changed.
The short version is that now:
• Previews are generated in bulk, and hundreds of LaTeX fragments can be 
processed per second.
• Images are placed continuously as they are generated.
• Preview generation is asynchronous and will not block Emacs.
• Inline previews are aligned and scaled to match the font baseline and size.
• Previews scale along with text when the text scale is changed.
• Previews are coloured to match surrounding text and the active theme.
• SVG previews automatically change colors when the active theme changes.
• Error encountered when compiling LaTeX fragments can be accessed by mousing 
over preview images.
• Preview overlays can hide and show themselves dynamically based on cursor 
• Org mode can auto-generate LaTeX previews as you type or edit the text of 
existing ones.
• Org mode can keep equation numbering consistent by regenerating previews as 

If you do come across any issues, please let me know either in a reply here or
the org-mode matrix room. If you could also run
<https://gist.github.com/karthink/0ac48411a81459c0f3fd7557c4e817db> and share 
diagnostic info, that would be quite helpful.

Lastly, Karthink has prepared a video giving an overview of the new
capabilities, you can give it a watch here:

All the best,
