CTAN sub­mis­sion – new ver­sion of float pack­age

Date: Au­gust 16, 2001 8:33:14 AM CEST
----- For­warded mes­sage from Anselm Ling­nau ----- I've up­loaded a new ver­sion (1.3a) of the float pack­age to ftp.dante.de:/in­com­ing. This should re­place the ex­ist­ing ver­sion in tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported. It is still a LPPL pack­age. This up­dates the float pack­age in a num­ber of re­spects, in­clud­ing - In­tro­duces new `plain­top' float style - In­tro­duces `\restyle­float*' com­mand which will restyle floats but leave their cap­tion pro­cess­ing alone - List-of-float start­ing code fac­tored out (for the ben­e­fit of pack­age's like KOMA-Script, sug­gested by Markus Kohm) - Adds \float at ad­dtolists com­mand to put some­thing (such as ex­tra ver­ti­cal space at chap­ter bound­aries) into all ac­tive list-of-float files - End-of-float han­dling sim­pli­fied ac­cord­ing to H.A. Som­mer­feldt ----- End for­warded mes­sage ----- Thanks for the sub­mis­sion, I in­stalled it as sug­gested in CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/la­tex/con­trib/sup­ported/float re­plac­ing the old ver­sion.

float – Im­proved in­ter­face for float­ing ob­jects

Im­proves the in­ter­face for defin­ing float­ing ob­jects such as fig­ures and ta­bles. In­tro­duces the boxed float, the ruled float and the plain­top float. You can de­fine your own floats and im­prove the be­haviour of the old ones.

The pack­age also pro­vides the H float mod­i­fier op­tion of the ob­so­lete here pack­age. You can se­lect this as au­to­matic de­fault with \float­place­ment{fig­ure}{H}.
