The l3experimental packages are a collection of experimental implementations for aspects of the LaTeX3 kernel, dealing with higher-level ideas such as the Designer Interface. Some of them work as stand alone packages, providing new functionality, and can be used on top of LaTeX2e with no changes to the existing kernel. The present release includes: l3color, which provides support for setting colors using a range of color models; l3draw, a code-level interface for constructing drawings; l3str, support for string manipulation; l3sys-shell, which provides abstractions for common shell functions like file deletion and copying; xcoffins, which allows the alignment of boxes using a series of ‘handle’ positions, supplementing the simple TeX reference point; xgalley, which controls boxes receiving text for typesetting.
