* If a LaTeX older than 2022-06-01 is detected a frozen version is used. All new features apply only if LaTeX 2022-06-01 or newer is detected. The frozen version can also be requested with \usepackage{xcolor}[=v2]. * The new LaTeX key/val handler is used for the package options. That means there will be less option clash errors, issue #29 * The \rowcolors command has moved to the colortbl package * The fixpdftex option is obsolete and does nothing at all (issue #20) * Extended \normalcolor to set also the "dot" color, issue #19 * Fix Gray color model, issue #23

xcolor – Driver-independent color extensions for and pdf

The package starts from the basic facilities of the color package, and provides easy driver-independent access to several kinds of color tints, shades, tones, and mixes of arbitrary colors. It allows a user to select a document-wide target color model and offers complete tools for conversion between eight color models. Additionally, there is a command for alternating row colors plus repeated non-aligned material (like horizontal lines) in tables. Colors can be mixed like \color{red!30!green!40!blue}.
