CTAN submission – numprint v1.10
Date: October 13, 2003 4:05:07 PM CEST
 Forwarded message from Harald Harders 
I have uploaded the file numprint1_10.tar.gz to ftp.dante.de. It contains
a new version of the numprint package. Please replace all files in
CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/numprint by its contents. And ignore the file
numprint1_00.tar.gz that I have uploaded a few days ago. License stays
LPPL.
>From the README:
Print numbers with a separator every three digits and convert numbers
given as 12345.6e789 to 12\,345,6\cdot 10^{789}. Numbers are printed
in the current mode (text or math) in order to use the correct font.
Many things, including the decimal sign, the thousand separator, as
well as the product sign can be changed by the user, e.g., to reach
12,345.6\times 10^{789}. If requested, numprint can round numbers to
a given number of digits.
If an optional argument is given it is printed upright as unit.
Numbers can be rounded to a given number of digits.
The package supports an automatic, languagedependent change of the
number format.
Tabular alignment using the tabular(*), array, tabularx, and longtable
environments (similar to the dcolumn and rccol package's) is supported
using all features of numprint. Additional text can be added before and
after the formatted number.
If you prefer to use the old version 0.32 you may use numprint032.sty
which will stay fixed.
The main new features are automatic language support and a really usable
tabular alignment.
Change log:
 1.10 2003/10/12 New tabular aligment mechanism (now comparable to
dcolumn and rccol) with full support of all
numprint formats.
Math version npbold which aligns with normal math
alphabet.
Don't use substr package.
Provide \npmakebox command that works as \makebox
but takes a text instead of a length for calculating
its width.
 1.00 2003/10/07 Automatically add a plus to numbers without sign.
Define shortcut \np for \numprint on demand.
Automatic support for different number formats in
different languages (already supported are
English and German).
Better argument parsing.
Automatically don't separate degree sign from number.
Customize input characters (decimal sign, exponent
character).
Define a list of ignored characters.
User defined signs exceeding +,, and \pm.
Load configuration file if present.
Improved calculation of box width for mantissa and
exponent.
Entirely new implementation (about 90% new code).
 End forwarded message 
Thanks for the upload. I installed the new version as suggested replacing
the old one in CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/numprint
