I am trying to figure out what has changed about my system after a
recent major upgrade that has stopped my slideshows from building. It
seems there has been a change to the management of the key=value parser.

The end result is that I can no longer pass contingent arguments to
itemize environments.. i.e. Exhibit A compiles:


But Exhibit B does not:

\begin{slide}{Test slide}
\item This example does not compile, saying `topsep' is not a defined key.

Because the new xkeyval is not compatible with enumitem, I infer that
Powerdot's dependency on both xkeyval and enumitem has forced
powerdot.cls to re-implement key-value parsing for list environments,
with unfortunate consequences.

Is there a work around? or do I simply have to revise ALL my old

see documentation: with the new enumitem you have to use


the first [] is for powerdot (e.g. type=..) and the second [] is
for enumitem
