Date: March 5, 2007 11:51:15 AM CET
On Fri, 2 Mar 2007, Markus Kohm submitted an update to 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 2007/02/03 v2.97 Copyright (c) Markus Kohm , 1994-2007
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.
For installation see INSTALL.txt (english) or INSTALLD.txt (german, UTF-8).
Changes at v2.97: - page break improvements at toc - font of \minisec may be configured - new option "chapteratlists" to add chapter headings to at least lof and lot - fixed at scrlttr2: "refline=wide" and "refline=narrow" had inverse meaning - auto dot feature fixed - option "cleardoublepage" fixed - problem with \automark{subsubsection} fixed - \setcapwidth does not longer allow with less than 0pt - some minor fixes Changes at v2.96: - Commands, that have an internal and an external name (defined using \let at as@internal at defined) may optional be defined only internal (using option internalonly). The backslash of the macro name has to be replaced by a slash at the option argument (e.g. "internalonly=/ifvtex/ifundefined"). - typearea fix: set \topskip. - typearea: warn if \typearea is used at any group. - \maketitle sets \parskip etc. to avoid strange results and messages. - xkeyval workaround: preserve \CurrentOption from being destroyed by xkeyval's \setkeys - typearea: uses \ProcessOptions* instead of \ProcessOptions so options are executed at usage order instead of definition order. - fix: \usekomafont of an alias element does work - new: every font size may be set up - fix: \parsep at lists (instead of \parskip) - new at scrlttr2: option "backaddress=plain" to avoid underlined back sending address - new at scrlfile: \ReplaceClass, \ReplacePackage, \ReplaceInput - some manual fixes

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).
