CTAN package update: Eplain 3.2 release

Date: November 28, 2007 6:32:46 PM CET
Oleg Katsitadze has provided a package which has been mirrored, automatically, to CTAN. He writes: I'm happy to announce a new release of Eplain (3.2), a set of TeX macros that expands on and extends the definitions in plain TeX in a "style-neutral" fashion. Eplain's home page is http://tug.org/eplain Location on CTAN is /macros/eplain The manual is available on-line from Eplain's home, or as a hard-copy from http://www.lulu.com/content/113810 (Royalties are donated to the TeX Users Group.) Here's an excerpt from the NEWS file. * Fixed a bug which caused silent indexing macros to output spurious space in vertical mode. * Added a switch to disable index file input/output. * Fixed xref and bibliography label definition macros so that reading in a .aux file with a large number of label definitions does not overflow the save stack. * Fixed double-column macros -- they were occasionally losing material and producing columns too high to fit on a page. Also improved appearance of the last column, which often came out spaced out. ============== I've updated the catalogue, and the new version should be widely available by now. Users may view the catalogue entry at http://mirror.ctan.org/help/Catalogue/entries/eplain.html or browse the distribution at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/eplain/ Thanks for the continuing support of the package, Oleg.
