HISTORY from FrenchPro to e-French

The eFrench projet is born in order to keep up to date French for (La)Tex and
maintain it available for future users.  FrenchPro for (La)Tex, is the result 
of a fifteen years work of its creator, Bernard Gaulle

Beginning 1999, the FrenchPro package was marketted as shareware, and Bernard
Gaulle alone owner of all rights. He died Aug. 2nd 2007. His wife Catherine
Gaulle, the heiress, gave authorization in that matter to the eFrench group in
order to maintain the whole work in the future.

The project is maintained by a small group started by Laurent Bloch and hosted
by Tux Family: https://svn.tuxfamily.org/viewvc.cgi/efrench_efrenchsources/trunk/,
email: efrench@lists.tuxfamily.org.

                 The credit for this piece of work remains with
                   the first and main author, Bernard Gaulle.

The distribution includes an unique package for both Unix (Linux, OSx)

The user's manual is named efrench.pdf, documentation of french.sty
(source) is named french_doc.pdf. A FAQ explains the context in which
these packages are to be used.

** The install directory
            Short documentations for beginners are written in 
- in english: MiniDoc_Unx.txt for Unix, 
              MiniDoc_Win.txt for Windows
              FilesInTDS.txt as further explanation
- in french : MiniDocEf_Unx.pdf for Unix, 
              MiniDocEf_Win.pdf for Windows
   Because pdf better for languages using 
   non 7-bits accented characters like french.

** The french directory
The french directory with its content is to be placed in a correct
place in the Tex Directory Structure, normally under .../tex/plain
resulting in the branch .../tex/plain/french, 
- see also FilesInTDS.txt in the install directory

** The doc directory
The documentation is provided with the sources as required under
LPPL agreement
- User's manuals are under "/manuels".
- Short documentation
  - histoire.html is the history of french.sty written in french
    an abstract is given in changements.html
  - lisez-moi.html explains why this name "efrench"
  - licence.html explains the licence-history (french and english)
    In order to render non-ascii accented characters in french, 
    html instead text for these short documentations


  No problem for the user. French.sty is the FrenchPro's version 
with shareware test removed and updated to a new version.

  It is not neccessary to migrate, in e-french frenchle.sty is as
easy accessible as french.sty
  But for a use with XeLaTeX please migrate to french.sty
  If you migrate there are only these things to do: 
- replace "frenchle" with "french" in the \usepackage calling it.
- if in use please rename frenchle.cfg to french.cfg and adapt it.  
  - Within it, please desactivate the things with french
     guillemets (chevrons), if they were active. 

NEW in Vers. 6.1: Interchartoks for XeLaTeX-BibLaTeX compatibility.
NEW in Vers. 6.11: more choices by non breakable (fine) spaces.

Enjoy.                         Raymond Juillerat for the e-french group
