CTAN Update: cooking-units

Date: October 24, 2017 7:44:14 PM CEST
Ben Vitecek submitted an update to the cooking-units package. Version: 1.2 2017-10-23 License: lppl Summary description: Typeset and convert units for cookery books and recipes Announcement text:
The new version 1.20 includes several important changes: -- The package 'translator' is being replaced by 'translations'. -- This package now supports the usage of "phrases" (the replacement of certain integers by words) (which I think are called "counting measures" in English, but I am not sure and went with "phrases") which can be activated by the option "use-phrases". -- If no translation is found for \cutext and \Cutext they are automatically replaced by \cunum. -- A former version of this package introduced its own label & ref system and allowed the main commands of this package to accept labels via arrow brackets. This wasn't the best idea as it fails if the arrow brackets are made active (by e.g. "babel" and option "spanish"). This version tries to fix it and as such the token "<" is not allowed to be used as a "special-sign" anymore. Minor changes (new options, units, etc.) are listed in the section "Change History".
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/cooking-units The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/cooking-units/

cooking-units – Typeset and convert units for cookery books and recipes

The package provides commands to typeset amounts and units consistently and offers an easy-to-use key-value syntax to convert one unit into another (for example ‘dag’ to ‘g’; see the documentation for more examples).

This packages requires expl3 and xparse, translations, xfrac, l3keys2e, and, optionally, fmtcount.
