CTAN Update: caption

Date: November 7, 2011 7:44:39 AM CET
On Sun, 6 Nov 2011 Axel Sommerfeldt submitted an update to the caption package. Summary description: Customising captions in floating environments. License type: lppl Announcement text:
`newfloat' package added. The `newfloat' package offers the command \DeclareFloatingEnvironment for defining new floating environments which behave like the existing ones `figure' and `table'. This functionality was already offered by the `caption' package via \DeclareCaptionType in the past, but is now available for users which don't want to use the `caption' package.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/caption . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/caption (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

caption – Customising captions in floating environments

The caption package provides many ways to customise the captions in floating environments like figure and table, and cooperates with many other packages. Facilities include rotating captions, sideways captions, continued captions (for tables or figures that come in several parts). A list of compatibility notes, for other packages, is provided in the documentation.

The package also provides the “caption outside float” facility, in the same way that simpler packages like capt-of do.

The package supersedes caption2.
