CTAN update: etoc

Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the

                etoc

package.

Version number: 1.08 2015-03-10
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Completely customisable TOCs.

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

\etocskipfirstprefix may now appear anywhere in the part of a level
  style.

  New commands \etociffirst, \etocxiffirst, \etocxifnumbered.

  It is now possible to issue line style specifications directly with &
  and \\ tokens, in order to typeset a TOC as a tabular or longtable
  with the opening for example in the first argument of \etocsettocstyle
  and the closing in its second argument.

  It is mandatory for such uses to issue \etocglobaldefs which tells
  etoc to proceed globally for certain definitions. This is also useful
  in the context of the inline environments of package enumitem.

  On this occasion, various old parts of the code have been improved.

New on CTAN: boxedminipage2e

Scott Pakin submitted the

                boxedminipage2e

package.

Version number: 1.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Framed minipages of a specified total width (text
and frame combined)

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

The boxedminipage2e package is a very simple package that essentially
just wraps a minipage within an \fbox.  However, while
\fbox{\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}...\end{minipage}} juts out into the
margin, \begin{boxedminipage}...\end{boxedminipage} does not.  Instead,
it subtracts the frame's dimensions from the specified dimensions of
the minipage before typesetting the minipage.
