New CTAN package: TQFT

i was out at a concert, and the daemon left a note for me:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> 
> Name of contribution: TQFT
> Author's name: Andrew Stacey
> Package version: 1.0
> Location on CTAN: graphics/pgf/contrib/
> Summary description: Drawing TQFT diagrams with TikZ/PGF
> License type: lppl
> 
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> This package defines some node shapes useful for drawing TQFT diagrams
> with TikZ/PGF.  That is, it defines highly customisable shapes that
> look like cobordisms between circles, such as those used in TQFT and
> other mathematical diagrams.

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new package, and created an
entry for it in the catalogue repository.

the daemon crawls out and cries:

> Name of contribution: texapi
> Author's name: Paul Isambert
> Package version: 1.04
> Location on CTAN: macros/generic/
> Summary description: Macros to write format-independent packages.
> License type: lppl
> 
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Added:
> - \ifwhatever: evaluates a conditional no matter whether it's a TeX
>   conditional (expecting \else... \fi) or a conditional with <true>
>   and <false> as arguments;  
> - \ifexpression: evaluates a conditional expression, i.e. conditionals
>   separated by "&" (and) and "|" (or), possibly negated with "-" and
>   grouped into subexpressions;
> - \ifelseif: takes any number of conditional/statement pairs and
>   executes the statement associated with the first true conditional. 
> 
> Modified:
> - \reverse now defaults to \unless instead of producing an error if
>   the following command isn't recognized as a texapi conditional.

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
catalogue repository.

CTAN Update: ledmac and ledpar

On Sat, 1 Oct 2011 Maïeul Rouquette submitted an update to the

  ledmac / ledpar

packages.

License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
For ledpar, fix a bug who made impossible to use \autopar on the right side.

For ledmac and pstart, propose to insert a number on every pstart command. Use 
\numberpstarttrue to enable it and \numberpstartfalse to disable it.

To change the apparence of the numbering, redefine the command \thepstart, 
\thepstartL and \thepstartR.

To reset the numbering, made :

\setcounter{pstart}{1}

and if you use ledpar

\setcounter{pstartL}{1}
\setcounter{pstartR}{1}

CTAN Update: invoice

On Mon, 3 Oct 2011 Oliver Corff submitted an update to the

  invoice

package.

Summary description: A Package for writing invoices.
License type: gpl

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

The invoice package is used for generating invoices. Supports Afrikaans, Dutch, 
English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Swedish. 
Includes invisible expense items and deductions.

While invoice is primarily targeted at charging combinations
of fees and expenses in a variety of currencies (as might be
the case with a consultant), there is also the package facture which 
is more geared towards sales invoices. Unlike facture which relies
on xelatex, invoice is not bound to a specific platform.

The package depends on fp and calc.

The author is Oliver Corff.

package.

texliveonfly.py should now work both on python 2.6+ and 3, and on OS X and

In addition, many new features added:

-User can now set --texlive_bin=LOCATION

-Graphical privilege escalation is now default, and the script will no longer 
escalate unless necessary (i.e. local texlive installs are now viable)

-Now displays output from the compiler, allows the user to interact directly 
with it (e.g. when "-interaction=nonstopmode" is unset), and inherits the exit 
code. 

-Now capable of speech-synthesized notifications; turn on using:

  --speech_when="always"/"installing"/"failed"/some combination.

Finally, default options have been placed near the top of the script; feel free
