CTAN update: pdfcomment

Josef Kleber submitted an update to the

                 pdfcomment

package.

Version number: 2.4
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: A user-friendly interface to pdf annotations

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
For a long time pdflatex has offered the command `\pdfannot` for inserting
arbitrary PDF annotations. However, the command is presented in
a form where additional knowledge of the definition of the PDF format is
indispensable. This package is an answer to the – occasional – questions
in newsgroups, about how one could use the comment function of Adobe
Reader. At least for the writer of LaTeX code, the package offers a
convenient and user-friendly means of using `\pdfannot` to provide 
comments
in PDF files. Since version v1.1, pdfcomment.sty also supports:

   LaTeX -> dvips -> ps2pdf, LaTeX -> dvipdfmx, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX

Unfortunately, support of PDF annotations by PDF viewers may vary.
The reference viewer for the development of this package is Adobe Reader.

Changes in v2.4:

CTAN Update: latex-graphics

The LaTeX Team  submitted an update to the

                latex-graphics

package.

Version:  2016-06-02
License:  lppl1.3

Summary description:  The LaTeX standard graphics bundle

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

 Following the death of Sebastian Rahtz, and the retirement of
 Robin Fairbairns, the LaTeX3 project have been asked to take over
 maintenance of the rotating package.

 This update adds the rotating package to the LaTeX graphics bundle.

 In addition the pagesize handling is now normalised across drivers.
 Previously the pdftex and luatex options set the page size (by
 specifying \(pdf)page(height|width)). Now the dvips option uses
 a pagesize \special to have a similar effect.
 The color and graphics packages have new (no)setpagesize options
 that can enable or disable this behaviour.

previously just in the sample graphics.cfg).
