David Carlisle submitted an update to the etex-pkg package. Version number: 2.5 2016-01-07 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: E-TeX support package Announcement text:
Minor update to etex.sty so that it defines \globcount (to be \newcount) in the case that the extended registers are already being allocated and so the package quits with a warning.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/etex-pkg More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/etex-pkg We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
