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 packages 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}.
