CTAN update: rotating

Date: March 28, 2009 9:16:54 PM CET
juergen spitzmueller found a bug in sebastian rahtz's rotating package, which i now maintain. i have now mended the bug (which i introduced), and i have installed a new version of the package on ctan (note that a file rotating.tds.zip also exists, for the convenience of those who maintain their own systems). users may visit the catalogue entry for the package at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/rotating.html or browse the package directory on the archive at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/rotating/ i have updated the catalogue entry in the repository, and the link above will be updated overnight, but is unlikely to deceive in any important way before then.

rotating – Rotation tools, including rotated full-page floats

A package built on the standard graphics package to perform all the different sorts of rotation one might like, including complete figures and tables with their captions.

If you want continuous text (i.e., more than one page) set in landscape mode, use the lscape package instead. The rotating packages only deals in rotated boxes (or floats, which are themselves boxes), and boxes always stay on one page.

If you need to use the facilities of the float in the same document, load rotating.sty via rotfloat, which smooths the path between the rotating and float packages.

The package is now part of the latex-graphics bundle, which is one of the collections in the ‘required’ set of packages.
