CTAN update: unicode-math

Will Robertson submitted an update to the

package.

Version number: 0.8
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Unicode mathematics support for XeTeX and LuaTeX.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
- v0.8  (2015/07/29)  **Breaking changes in this update!**

  * `\mathrm` (`\mathup`), `\mathit`, `\mathbf`, `\mathsf`, and
    `\mathtt` revert to their traditional LaTeX meanings; they are set
    up to match their equivalent text fonts unless specifically set
    using `\setmathrm` and friends from `fontspec` or the new
    `\setmathfontface` in `unicode-math`. These commands should be used
    for *multi*-letter identifiers.

  * New "symbol" commands have been added, `\symrm` (`\symup`),
    `symit`, ..., to replace the behaviour of the old commands. These
    should be used for *single*-letter identifiers. See the package
    documentation for more detail on these and related commands.

  * Package options `mathit=sym`, `mathbf=sym`, etc., reverse the
    changes above to revert to pre-v0.8 behaviour for `\mathXYZ`.
    Regardless of package option, `\symXYZ` always maps to symbols and

CTAN update: e-french

Raymond Juillerat submitted an update to the

                e-french

package.

Version number: 5.9995 2015-07-29
License type: lppl

Summary description: Comprehensive LaTeX support for French-language
typesetting.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Because frenchle as standalone package is now under obsolete versions,
some users of it could encounter some problems with the code of their
applications. This is the solution. Former users of frenchle must not
change immediately their code if they install this last e-french
package. Now frenchle is included in e-french. Each possibility,
frenchle or french is in the same directory (french) and is called
exactly the same way with the \usepackage{frenchle} or
\usepackage{french}.

CTAN Update: moderncv

Xavier Danaux submitted an update to the

package.

Version:  2.0.0 / 2015-07-28
License:  lppl1.3

Summary description:  A modern curriculum vitae class.

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

 version 2.0.0 (28 Jul 2015)

 - refactored the  code into heads, body, foot and icon substyles.
   All styles (classic, casual, banking and oldstyle) are just a
   combination of these and some font selection.
   Mixing substyles (e.g., the banking header with the classic body)
   is now trivial by using the \moderncvhead, \moderncvbody,
   \moderncvfoot and \moderncvicons commands.
   Each of these takes a substyle number as argument.
   \moderncvcolor takes a color name as argument.

 - added a new style, "fancy".

 - added an optional argument to \moderncvstyle to specify style options,
   i.e.  \moderncvstyle[options]{style}.
   Below is a list of the available options per style:
