What is fithesis?

Fithesis a set of LaTeX document classes for the typesetting of theses and dissertations at the faculties of the Masaryk University. The class allows you to typeset all parts (both compulsory and voluntary) of their theses in a unified manner as specified in the instructions for the thesis preparation.

The current version of fithesis

Compared to fithesis1, fithesis2 sets UTF-8 as the default character encoding, modifies the style of several typographic elements and adds support for the typesetting of the logo of the Faculty of Sports Studies.
