CTAN submission -- jurabib package v0.52p

----- Forwarded message from Jens Berger -----
I've just uploaded the file jurabib-052p.tar.gz to


This archive contains an updated version (0.52p) of the jurabib package.

It is distributed under the GNU General Public License.

The following files are included:


Changes since 0.52h:

    natbib commands are working with `authorformat=index' now
	(bug reported by Jose Ignacio Sanchez-Macias).
    some changes in spjbbib.ldf (suggested by Jose Ignacio
    bugfix for missing \endgroup (double \begingroup!) while
	calling \jbcitenotitle.
    removed doubled comma, if number and volume are given,
	while \artnumberformat prints out a comma by itself
	(reported by Kai Kramer and Jose Ignacio Sanchez-Macias).
    no longer double output of year for  <at> article type (generated
	shorttitle contains `journal year').
    fallback to url (if url given and neither shortauthor or shorttitle
	are given) removed, because of problems of detecting
	not given url.

This is a new release (v2.0) of my package upgreek.sty, which

math alphabet.  This version can optionally scale the Adobe Symbol 
font so as to match the other typefaces used in the document.
