Date: July 5, 2023 1:52:53 PM CEST
Daniel Flipo submitted updates to the lettrine package. Version: 2.51 2023-07-04 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset dropped capitals Announcement text:
Version: 2.50 2023-07-02 : Breaking change in version 2.50: In order to improve the alignment of side by side parboxes starting with a dropped cap, the internals of the \lettrine{} command have changed. This may affect multicolumn typestting when a dropped cap starts a column and sticks out significantly above the baseline. See file `lettrine.pdf` for possible workarounds. Version: 2.51 2023-07-04 : The *.cfl files had to be renamed to fit TeX Live requirements.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/lettrine The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/lettrine/

lettrine – Typeset dropped capitals

The lettrine package supports various dropped capitals styles, typically those described in the French typographic books. In particular, it has facilities for the paragraph text’s left edge to follow the outline of capitals that have a regular shape (such as “A” and “V”).
