The KOMA-Script team is happy to announce the June '04 Release of the KOMA-Script bundle aka "nothing is perfect unless you define it to be". -------------------------------------------------------- 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 2004/06/11 v2.9r scrbook.cls 2004/06/11 v2.9r scrreprt.cls 2004/06/11 v2.9r scrlttr2.cls 2004/06/11 v2.9r scrlettr.cls 2002/05/24 v2.6e (obsolete) scrtime.sty 2002/02/02 v1.1m scrdate.sty 2002/02/02 v1.1m scrpage2.sty 2004/02/07 v2.1c typearea.sty 2004/06/11 v2.9r scrlfile.sty 2004/06/11 v2.9r scrpage.sty 2001/06/22 v1.3c (obsolete) scraddr.sty 2002/06/02 v1.1b -------------------------------------------------------- What is new in this KOMA-Script release -------------------------------------------------------- One change in functionality of scrlttr2: - \providelanguage, \newlanguage and \renewlanguage for the language defined at \languagename (this is the name of the current language using a package like babel) are immediate. And some bug fixed: - \parfillskip was 1em plus 1fil instead of 0pt plus 1fil serveral times - warning messages at scrlttr2 fixed (class name was scrlttr) - Footnotes at one line captions fixed -------------------------------------------------------- XML file with infromations for The TeX Catalogue: -------------------------------------------------------- See koma-script.xml at the distribution. -------------------------------------------------------- Distributors note: -------------------------------------------------------- Removing any of the files of the distribution made by the KOMA-Script maintainers prevents the users from using the provided makefile mentioned at the installation documentation: INSTALL.TXT or INSTALLD.TXT.
Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested replacing the previous version in CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/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).
