CTAN Update: The caption package v3.1h

On Sun, 6 Apr 2008, Axel Sommerfeldt submitted an update to the

  caption 

package.

The caption package provides many ways to customise the captions in floating 
environments like figure and table, and cooperates with many other packages. 
Includes rotating captions, sideways captions, continued captions (for tables or 
figures that come in several parts).  A list of compatibility notes, for other 
packages, is provided in the documentation.

The package also provides the "caption outside float"    facility, in the same 
way that simpler packages like capt-of do.

The package supersedes caption2.

License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Bugfix release of the caption package bundle:

 - English documentation revised
 - German documentation finished!
 - \tablecaption* does not increment the table counter anymore
 - \nameref & \autoref work for supertabulars now, too
 - Support of the xtab package added

CTAN Update: minipage-marginpar

On Mon, 7 Apr 2008  Paul Ebermann submitted an update to the

  minipage-marginpar

package.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/minipage-marginpar
Summary description: Package-update: minipage-marginpar (bugfix and namechange)
License type: lppl

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

This package allows \marginpar -commands inside of minipages and other boxes. 
(It takes another approach than marginnote by Markus Kohm: it saves all 
\marginpar -commands and typesets them outside (i.e., after) the box.) Version 
0.3 fixes a bug, which caused marginpars of some kind only appearing on odd 
pages, not even ones. In my documents I don't have much of those, so I remarked 
it only now, nearly two years after version 0.2 (which introduced this bug, 
fixing another one).

At the same time, i decided to change the name of the package files from 
"mpgmpar" to "minipage-marginpar", as already is the CTAN directory name. (There 
is a compatibility style file, which simply loads the new one.)

----------------------------------------------------------------------

This package is located at 
   http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/minipage-marginpar

CTAN package update: vc

The package below has been updated and should soon be at your favorite
mirror.

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
The vc bundle
----------------------
This is a script based approach to version control for TeX
documents.  It works more reliably than keyword substitution
based approaches, since it tracks all files in a working
copy, not only .tex files.

The vc bundle works with LaTeX and plain TeX.  Currently,
Bazaar, Git and Subversion are supported.
