CTAN update: Oberdiek bundle and hyperref

Date: May 10, 2016 1:11:51 PM CEST
The LaTeX Team submitted an update to the Oberdiek bundle and hyperref package Version numbers: Oberdiek 2016-05-05 hyperref 6.83n License type: lppl Summary description: A bundle of packages submitted by Heiko Oberdiek Announcement text:
Update of oberdiek and hyperref bundles on CTAN. The incompatible changes to luatex in recent luatex versions have required updates to most packages that have any "driver" or "engine" specific features. In particular this has affected ifpdf and hyperref packages. Heiko Oberdiek has not had time to update packages due to other pressures on his time and so Heiko and the members of the LaTeX3 and TexLive projects have agreed a new support mechanism. The github organisation https://github.com/ho-tex forms a public repository for maintaining the packages. Issues may be reported on the github site, for example: https://github.com/ho-tex/hyperref/issues https://github.com/ho-tex/oberdiek/issues Additional repositories may be added if updates are needed. Issues may also be reported to the ho-tex at tug.org mailing list. (Web interface: http://lists.tug.org/ho-tex) The new mechanism allows small updates to packages to be made as needed. Currently concentrating just on luatex compatibility issues.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/oberdiek More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/Oberdiek We are supported by the TeX user groups. Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz
