On Tue, 13 Jul 2010 Hideo Umeki sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ge­om­e­try pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Flex­i­ble and com­plete in­ter­face to doc­u­ment di­men­sions. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
2010-07-13 Re­lease 5.5 * Fixed a bug where pa­per width and height were swapped un­nec­es­sar­ily in­side \new­ge­om­e­try{} if 'land­scape' is given as a class op­tion. * Changed crop marks with el­bow-shaped lines 17mm long and off­set by 3mm. * Added 'showframe' and 'showcrop' as op­tions shown in ver­bose mode. * Fixed ty­pos and wrong fig­ures, and re­vised ex­pres­sions in the doc­u­ment. * Added missed things that had been fixed for v5.4 into changes.txt.

ge­om­e­try – Flex­i­ble and com­plete in­ter­face to doc­u­ment di­men­sions

The pack­age pro­vides an easy and flex­i­ble user in­ter­face to cus­tomize page lay­out, im­ple­ment­ing auto-cen­ter­ing and auto-bal­anc­ing mech­a­nisms so that the users have only to give the least de­scrip­tion for the page lay­out. For ex­am­ple, if you want to set each mar­gin 2cm with­out header space, what you need is just \usep­a­ck­age[mar­gin=2cm,no­head]{ge­om­e­try}.

The pack­age knows about all the stan­dard pa­per sizes, so that the user need not know what the nom­i­nal ‘real’ di­men­sions of the pa­per are, just its stan­dard name (such as a4, let­ter, etc.).

An im­por­tant fea­ture is the pack­age’s abil­ity to com­mu­ni­cate the pa­per size it's set up to the out­put (whether via DVI \spe­cials or via di­rect in­ter­ac­tion with pdf).
