loaded. Using it, you can specify patches, additions, and other staff

CTAN has a new package: TengwarScript

A new package has been installed at tug.ctan.org and should soon make its
way to your favorite mirror.

I apologize for the delay; thank you for prompting me.

Thanks again,
Jim Hefferon

======================================================================

The following information was provided by the package's contributor.

Name of contribution: TengwarScript
Author's name: Ignacio Fernández Galván
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/tengwarscript
Summary description: A package for writing tengwar with LaTeX
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The TengwarScript package provides a mid-level access to tengwar fonts 
while still generating good output by default. Each tengwar sign has an 
individual command, wich should place the sign nicely with relation to 
the preceding signs. So, to write the word "quetta" in Quenya mode one 
would write: \Tquesse\Tacute\Ttinco\TTdoubler\TTthreedots

TengwarScribe supports several tengwar fonts which can be found in 
Type 1 format or easily converted, including Dan Smith's fonts, 
Tengwar Parmaite, Tengwar Annatar and others. The full set of supported 
fonts can be found in the manual and in the sample "tengfonts.pdf" file.

CTAN update: spanish hyphenation patterns

On Tue, 10 Jan 2006, Javier Bezos submitted updates to the spanish 
hyphenation patterns, ie. to

 a) the subtree language/spanish
 b) the file language/hyphenation/eshyph.tex

 > This is an update for the Spanish hyphenation patterns
 > supported by the Spanish TUG CervanTeX:
 > 
 > - Thanks to a list of about 750000 words and extensive
 > tests, wrong hyphenations have been reduced dramatically
 > and the number of patterns has been almost duplicated.
 > 
 > - Since the Spanish Academy rules of 1999 are very vague,
 > incomplete and even contradictory, they had to be
 > completed with some traditional ones. The Academy has
 > published new rules in November 2005 including many of
 > the traditional ones employed here and therefore only
 > minor adjustments have been necessary.

 > and South America) have been included.
