Report

I have tested the minimalgls.tex. It almost works, but gives the following errors: ! LaTeX Error: \genacrfullformat undefined. ! LaTeX Error: \genplacrfullformat undefined. May you help me to fix it?

 % This is a minimal file for testing and debugging
 % the glossaries package. Change the class file as
 % desired, and add the relevant package options to
 % both the class file and the glossaries package.
 % Change the sample glossary entry and acronym if
 % required. If the problem occurs with an additional
 % glossary, add in the relevant \newglossary command
 % and a sample entry.
 %
 % Only add extra packages or commands if they
 % contribute to whatever problem you are trying to
 % test.

 % Remember that the document will not be complete
 % until you have successfully completed all of the
 % following steps:
 % 1. latex minimalgls
 % 2. makeglossaries minimalgls (note no extension)
 % 3. latex minimalgls
 % A further run through LaTeX will be required to ensure that
 % the table of contents is up to date if the toc option
 % is used.
 % Alternatively, if you use arara, you can add the following
 % directives in your document:
 %
 % arara: pdflatex: { synctex: on }
 % arara: makeglossaries
 % arara: pdflatex: { synctex: on }

\documentclass{article}
\listfiles

\usepackage[colorlinks]{hyperref}
 %\usepackage{glossaries} % acronym will go in main glossary
 \usepackage[acronym]{glossaries} % make a separate list of acronyms

\makeglossaries

 % Setup acronym fonts (e.g. \emph for short form on first use and
 % \textbf for short form on subsequent use):
\renewcommand{\firstacronymfont}[1]{\emph{#1}}
\renewcommand{\acronymfont}[1]{\textbf{#1}}
 % Apply the generic acronym style to just the "acronym" glossary:
\defglsentryfmt[acronym]{\glsgenacfmt}

 % Change acronym first use so that its displayed as
 % short (long)
\renewcommand{\genacrfullformat}[2]{%
  \glsentryshort{#1}#2 (\glsentrylong{#1})%
}
\renewcommand{\genplacrfullformat}[2]{%
  \glsentryshortpl{#1}#2 (\glsentrylongpl{#1})%
}

\longnewglossaryentry{par}{name={par}}%
{%
  A long description with a paragraph break.

  This is the next paragraph.
}

\newglossaryentry{sample}{name={sample},
description={a sample entry}}

\newacronym[\glsshortpluralkey=cas,\glslongpluralkey=contrived
acronyms]{aca}{aca}{a contrived acronym}

\begin{document}
A \gls{sample} entry and \gls{aca}. Second use: \gls{aca}.

Plurals: \glspl{sample}. Reset acronym\glsreset{aca}.
First use: \glspl{aca}. Second use: \glspl{aca}.

\glsresetall
First letter upper case: \Gls{sample}. First use: \Gls{aca}.
Subsequent use: \Gls{aca}.
\glsresetall
Plurals: \Glspl{sample}. First use: \Glspl{aca}. Next: \Glspl{aca}.

If you want paragraph breaks in the description use
\verb|\longnewglossaryentry|, as with entry \gls{par}.

\printglossaries
\end{document}

Evaluation

Those are new commands. Upgrade to version 4.02. (I mainly added those lines in minimalgls.tex for testing purposes, but I may remove them in the next version to keep this file minimal.)
