CTAN update: KOMA-Script

Date: August 2, 2006 10:13:17 AM CEST
On Tue, 1 Aug 2006, Markus Kohm submitted a new release of the koma-script package. Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/koma-script Summary description: KOMA-Script is a versatil LaTeX2e bundle License type: lppl Announcement text:
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. After 4 years of development the release of the LaTeX bundle KOMA-Script 2.95b is available now. KOMA-Script 2.95 was tested for month and should be as stable as KOMA-Script 2.9u was. Nevertheless KOMA-Script 2.95 is a new implementation of the features of KOMA-Script 2.9u. Most important changes at KOMA-Script 2.95b: - \ifthispageodd fixed. This fix also fixes inner/outer margin bug of captionbeside and addmargin. - Line breaks at some messages improved to avoid overfull message lines. - Font variable `sectioning' renamed to `disposition'. `sectioning' still may be used as an alias of the new name. Most important changes at KOMA-Script 2.95a: - addmargin does not longer damage list depth - switching off option tocleft or listleft does not longer result in an error - vertical alignment of \caption fixed Most important changes at KOMA-Script 2.95: - new source base - bugfix at scrlttr2: foldmarks does not depend on type area - bugfix at scrbook: option oneside activates \raggedbottom - english manual (scrguien): describes same features like german manual - manuals: optimized to be used on screen (either portrait screen or on 19" landscape screens together with an editor window) - manuals: html index of all commands, options, environments etc. available (see scrguide.html or scrguien.html) - Simple installation by unpacking koma-script-texmf.zip at any TEXMF root directory (see INSTALLD.txt or INSTALL.txt). NOTE: This feature depends on the distribution. Distributions made by the author (see <URL:http://developer.berlios.de/project/filelist.php?group_id=4307>) have this feature. - license: LPPL 1.3b (see lppl-de.txt or lppl.txt)
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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).
