New on CTAN: boxedminipage2e

Scott Pakin submitted the

                boxedminipage2e

package.

Version number: 1.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Framed minipages of a specified total width (text
and frame combined)

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

The boxedminipage2e package is a very simple package that essentially
just wraps a minipage within an \fbox.  However, while
\fbox{\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}...\end{minipage}} juts out into the
margin, \begin{boxedminipage}...\end{boxedminipage} does not.  Instead,
it subtracts the frame's dimensions from the specified dimensions of
the minipage before typesetting the minipage.
