# CTAN Update: url

Date: January 1, 2014 3:12:34 PM CET
Donald Arseneau submitted an update to the url package. Version number: 3.4 License type: lppl Summary description: The command \url is a form of verbatim command that allows linebreaks at certain characters or combinations of characters, accepts reconfiguration, and can usually be used in the argument to another command. (The \urldef command provides robust commands that serve in cases when \url doesn't work in an argument.) The command is intended for email addresses, hypertext links, directories/paths, etc., which normally have no spaces, so by default the package ignores spaces in its argument. However, a package option “allows spaces”, which is useful for operating systems where spaces are a common part of file names. Announcement text:
Minor bugfix revision: % ver 3.4 Sept 2013: \@nomatherr->\@inmatherr. & is now another \UrlBreak character.
