Changes to the LaTeX thesis template
There are pending updates and changes to the UCC Thesis document class. We need to know the views of users before we start work.
There are several pending requests for changes to the LaTeX document class for UCC theses. In particular, there is an outstanding problem with using \includeonly which needs to be fixed, and there are some internal changes needed, especially the move to using the keyval interface to specifying department and degree.
There is also the question of moving to biblatex instead of BIBTeX which needs addressing, probably via a class option; as does the use of XeLaTeX, which will let you use your installed system fonts as well as those which come with TeX.
If you have strong feelings one way or another on these, or any other comments or suggestions, please email me.
