CTAN Update: ifnextok

On Tue, 31 May 2011 Uwe Lück submitted an update to the

  ifnextok

package.

Summary description: make commands not skipping spaces
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
v0.2 provides \MakeNotSkipping<target>{<on-space>} 
modifying a given document-level command <target>, 
based on \IfNextSpace{<if>}{<else>}, 
actually addressing what the abstract of ifnextok.pdf 
has promised so far (including active double quote);
maybe rather showing problems than being 
practically useful (as opposed to package options 
useful for end-users)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This package is located at 
   http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/ifnextok
.  More information is at
   http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ifnextok
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .  
Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .

Thanks for the upload.

CTAN Update: skb

On Fri, 3 Jun 2011 Sven van der Meer submitted an update to the 

  skb

package.

Summary description: Create and maintain a repository for long-living documents
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package provides  macros that help  to build a  document repository for
long living  documents. It  focuses on  structure and  re-use of text, code,
figures etc. The basic concept  is to first separate structure  from content
(i.e. text about  a topic from  the structure it  is presented by)  and then
separating the  content from  the actual  published document,  thus enabling
easy re-use  of text  blocks in  different publications  (i.e. text  about a
protocol in a short article about this  protocol as well as in a book  about
many protocols); all without constantly copying or changing text. As a  side
effect, using the document  classes provided, it hides  a lot of LaTeX  from
someone who just wants to write articles and books. 

Updates in v0.52: added moderncv to the supported classes, changed package
structure to be compliant with CTAN requirements and added information in
the README file.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

This package is located at 
   http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/skb/

CTAN Update: ifnextok

On Fri, 3 Jun 2011 Uwe Lück submitted an update to the

  ifnextok

package.

Summary description: make commands not skipping spaces, cf. amsmath/mathtools
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
After hints on texhax by Heiko Oberdiek and on LATEX-L by 
Bruno Le Floche (May 11) and Frank Mittelbach (May 15; 
that I now finally read, 2011-06-02), \IfNextToken and 
\IfStarNextToken of v0.21 essentially (not exactly) are 
\new <at> ifnextchar and \ <at> ifstar, resp., from amsmath; 
main own features (i) control of where to employ them, 
(ii) use outside math, indeed rather thinking of humanities. 
Documentation now mentions amsmath and mathtools.
