I need a more modern pdfTex Version than 3.14 (TeX Live 2020)

pascal_schroeer March 11, 2024


the current bitbucket pipeline TeX Version for this image is:

image: dme26/latex-builder:latest

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.21 (TeX Live 2020/Debian)

But for this command "\str_mdfive_hash:e" I unfortunately need a newer version.


How can I achieve this? :)

Hi Pascal,

The Docker image you are using is the following image hosted in Docker Hub:

We support public and private Docker images including those hosted on Docker Hub, AWS, GCP, Azure, and self-hosted registries accessible on the internet. You can search in Docker Hub or another registry for any public images with the name latex and check if any of them has a newer version of pdfTeX.

If you have Docker installed on your computer, you can check that locally. You can start a Docker container based on a certain image by running

docker run -it dme26/latex-builder:latest --entrypoint=/bin/bash

where dme26/latex-builder:latest replace with the image you want to check. The entrypoint in the command may need to be bin/sh instead of /bin/bash, depending on the image. You will then have a Docker container running based on this image and you can run commands in this container to check the version of tools. 

Another option would be to create your own custom Docker image where you install the version of pdfTeX you want. You can then push this Docker image to Docker Hub or another Docker registry and use that in your Bitbucket Pipelines yml file.

You can find resources about building your own custom image here:

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions!

Kind regards,
