CTAN Update: lipsum

Patrick Happel submitted an update to the

                  lipsum

package.

Version number: v1.3
License type: lppl

Summary description: Access to 150 paragraphs of Lorem Ipsum dummy text

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

 a) Using \romannumeral instead of \roman, since \roman is
    redefined by some language packages.

 b) New macros \unpacklipsum, \UnpackLipsum, \unpacklipsum* and
    \UnpackLipsum* which provide access to the expanded content
    of Lorem Ipsum via the respective definition of the macro
    \lipsumexp.  

 Both, a) and b), were heavily inspired and include code from
 stackexchange user EGREP. Thanks for the corresponding
 postings.
