CTAN update: Eplain 3.3

Date: July 25, 2009 8:33:59 PM CEST
This package has been updated on CTAN and should by now be at your local mirror. Thanks, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College ------------------------- Announcement ------------------------- I'm happy to announce release 3.3 of Eplain, a set of TeX macros that expands on and extends the definitions in plain TeX in a "style-neutral" fashion. Eplain's home page is http://tug.org/eplain You can get it off CTAN at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/eplain The manual is available on-line from CTAN or Eplain's home page, or as a hard-copy from http://www.lulu.com/content/113810 (royalties are donated to the TeX Users Group). Here's an excerpt from the NEWS file. * New commands \eqnum and \eqalignnum, counterparts of \(l)eqno and \(l)eqalignno, producing equation numbers which can be uniformly transformed to right-aligned (\righteqnumbers) or left-aligned (\lefteqnumbers). * Eplain has borrowed the eTeX, ExTeX, XeTeX and XeLaTeX logos from tugboat.dtx. * \idxnameseparator is now expanded once so that the .idx file contains its contents instead of the macro call. * Non-silent indexing macros have been fixed not to produce a spurious newline when newline's catcode is 13 (active). * Eplain now takes care to unactivate any active characters before typesetting index term in the margin for proofing. * Updated ifpdf.sty. * LaTeX package reloading warnings are now not shown on the terminal. * Documentation improvements. Thanks to everybody who contributed with bug reports, feature suggestions and code patches. Oleg Katsitadze
