CTAN update: etex-pkg
Version 2.2 adds a check that etex package has not been loaded after extended registers are already allocated by the LaTeX format, and gives a warning in that case. Previously, if etex.sty was loaded too late LaTeX would already have run out of registers and given an error. Since the 2015/01/01 LaTeX release, LaTeX will use extended registers. If etex.sty is to be loaded it must be loaded before extended registers are used to avoid the two allocation schemes conflicting. As explained in the warning message, to avoid the warning, either avoid loading etex package, or load it earlier in the document.

etex-pkg – E-TeX support package
The package provides support for LaTeX documents to use many of the extensions offered by e-TeX; in particular, it modifies LaTeX’s register allocation macros to make use of the extended register range.
The etextools package provides macros that make more sophisticated use of e-TeX’s facilities.
