CTAN update: footmisc package

Date: September 16, 2009 10:55:16 AM CEST
i've installed a new version (5.5) of my footmisc package on CTAN. this version corrects a bug reported on comp.text.tex, affecting vertical spacing of footnotes when the "hang" option was in effect. i've updated the catalogue repository. Users may view the package's catalogue entry at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/footmisc.html or browse the package's directory at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/footmisc/ The catalogue entry will change (somewhat) overnight tonight.

footmisc – A range of footnote options

A collection of ways to change the typesetting of footnotes. The package provides means of changing the layout of the footnotes themselves (including setting them in ‘paragraphs’ — the para option), a way to number footnotes per page (the perpage option), to make footnotes disappear in a ‘moving’ argument (stable option) and to deal with multiple references to footnotes from the same place (multiple option). The package also has a range of techniques for labelling footnotes with symbols rather than numbers.

Some of the functions of the package are overlap with the functionality of other packages. The para option is also provided by the manyfoot and bigfoot packages, though those are both also portmanteau packages. (Don't be seduced by fnpara, whose implementation is improved by the present package.) The perpage option is also offered by footnpag and by the rather more general-purpose perpage
