CTAN upload notification: unitsdef
This is an update of unitsdef to version 0.2. It includes some bugfixes, all units are robust now, a configuration file is supported and unitsdef now uses xspace to simplify the writing process. There are some new options to exclude some abbreviations to avoid conflicts with macros defined by other packages.
Thanks for the update. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
unitsdef – Typesetting units in LaTeX
Many packages for typesetting units have been written for use in LaTeX2ε. Some define macros to typeset a lot of units but do not suit to the actual font settings, some make the characters needed available but do not predefine any unit. This package tries to comply with both requirements. It predefines common units, defines an easy to use interface to define new units and changes the output concerning to the surrounding font settings.
