The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: KOMA-Script Name and email: Markus Kohm Suggested location on CTAN: tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/koma-script Summary description: KOMA-Script, a versatile LaTeX2e bundle License type: Free Announcement text:
The KOMA-Script team is happy to announce the June '02 Release of the KOMA-Script bundle aka "What we forgot in our previous release". -------------------------------------------------------- What is KOMA-Script -------------------------------------------------------- KOMA-Script is a versatile bundle of LaTeX2e document classes and packages. It aims to be a replacement to the standard LaTeX2e classes. KOMA-Script does not stop with the features known from the standard classes, but it extends the possibilities in order to provide the user an almost complete working environment. -------------------------------------------------------- Versions of classes and packages at this release: -------------------------------------------------------- scrartcl.cls 2002/06/21 v2.9 scrbook.cls 2002/06/21 v2.9 scrreprt.cls 2002/06/21 v2.9 scrlttr2.cls 2002/06/21 v2.9 scrlettr.cls 2002/05/24 v2.6e (obsolete) scrtime.sty 2002/02/02 v1.1m scrdate.sty 2002/02/02 v1.1m scrpage2.sty 2002/03/28 v2.1 typearea.sty 2002/06/21 v2.9 scrlfile.sty 2002/06/21 v2.9 scrpage.sty 2001/06/22 v1.3c (obsolete) scraddr.sty 2002/06/02 v1.1b -------------------------------------------------------- What is new in this KOMA-Script release -------------------------------------------------------- The two most important changes are that there is now a completely rewritten letter class (scrlttr2) included and for our non-german users we are happy to provide the first time in the KOMA-Script history a complete english manual. Furthermore, the article, report and book classes know some new options, commands and environments. For example KOMA-Script provides an environment to set captions beside a figure or table. Enhanced control over the captions should make packages like caption2 almost unnecessary. A new interface allows to select the style of different text elements very easily. The scrdate and scrtime packages now support also the languages dutch and croatian. The new package scrlfile gives package developers and even users more control over package dependencies. This release includes of course some minor bug fixes and many more enhancements not mentioned here. Go discover. ---------------------------------------------------- Notes to the CTAN and the TeX Catalogue maintainers: ---------------------------------------------------- - I've used tar.bz2 because it's much shorter. - There's a ``koma-script.xml'' at this distribution. Please use it or modified version of it for The TeX Catalogue.
----- End forwarded message ----- Thanks for uploading the new version. I installed it as suggested in CTAN:/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/supported/koma-script 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).
