CTAN package update: rotating

Date: June 27, 2008 11:33:47 AM CEST
i have updated my version of the rotating package on ctan. since i last announced an install, i have -- reworked the way in which the package "remembers" what page it's on, which seems to have solved the problem about page-related rotation. -- mended an infelicity in the way in which captions were produced. as always, bug reports to my address, as in the package, are welcome. users may view the package catalogue entry at: http://mirror.ctan.org/help/Catalogue/entries/rotating.html or they may browse the package directory at: http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/rotating/ Robin Fairbairns For the CTAN team

rotating – Rotation tools, including rotated full-page floats

A package built on the standard graphics package to perform all the different sorts of rotation one might like, including complete figures and tables with their captions.

If you want continuous text (i.e., more than one page) set in landscape mode, use the lscape package instead. The rotating packages only deals in rotated boxes (or floats, which are themselves boxes), and boxes always stay on one page.

If you need to use the facilities of the float in the same document, load rotating.sty via rotfloat, which smooths the path between the rotating and float packages.

The package is now part of the latex-graphics bundle, which is one of the collections in the ‘required’ set of packages.
