Add LATEX_TIMESTAMP option

Doxygen offers the option to omit HTML timestamps by setting HTML_TIMESTAMP option to NO but, it does not offer the option the omit timestamps from Latex. This is fixed with the patch I provide.

Additionally this option will allow to generate documentation that is bit-wise identical between different compilation runs which makes it easier to verify that a given binary was indeed generated from a given source.

I set the default value for the LATEX_TIMESTAMP option to YES because that is how it is done in the HMTL_TIMESTAMP option. But maybe it would make sense to set the default to be NO in order to have reproducibility by default?

I wonder, which sense the time stamps make. Why not remove them altogether? If they are useful to some, I agree with marivalenm, they at least should be "off" by default. This would help all the people working on reproducible builds, at Debian, S.u.S.E. etc.

Thanks, I opened a separate issue for this here: https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=745439

Let me ping this feature request.

Only a point: given that the default HTML_TIMESTAMP was changed to NO, it would make lot of sense to also have this LATEX_TIMESTAMP to NO (contrary to the current patch which use YES).

Thanks, I'll include the patch in the next GIT update and make the default NO as suggested.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.11. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferably in the form of a self-contained example).
