----- Forwarded message from Markus Kohm ----- Summary description: KOMA-Script is a bundle of classes and packages for LaTeX Suggested CTAN directory: Please remove the contents of tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/koma-script but not the contrib subdirectory and extract the koma-script.tar.gz into tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/koma-script Short text for announcement: Lots of changes where done. There a many new features, a new package (scrpage2), better compatibility with packages like longtable and float, and a new written german scrguide. Because of lack in time and translation staff the english scrguide is still the old one. License: lppl Greetings Markus ----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for the upload. I installed the new version as suggested. Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

koma-script – A bundle of versatile classes and packages

The KOMA-Script bundle provides replacements for the article, report, and book classes with emphasis on typography and versatility. There is also a letter class.

The bundle also offers:

  • a package for calculating type areas in the way laid down by the typographer Jan Tschichold,
  • packages for easily changing and defining page styles,
  • a package scrdate for getting not only the current date but also the name of the day, and
  • a package scrtime for getting the current time.

All these packages may be used not only with KOMA-Script classes but also with the standard classes.

Since every package has its own version number, the version number quoted only refers to the version of scrbook, scrreprt, scrartcl, scrlttr2 and typearea (which are the main parts of the bundle).
