Summary description: Extensions for package pict2e.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Substantial enhancement of the existing macros that now accept also coordinates and direction vectors in
polar form; new 
interface to the cubic Bézier spline internal commands. It is possible that old drawings made with the
previous version 
of this package produce slightly different curves due to the new algorithm of the recursive macro \Curve.
Now filling of 
arbitrary closed paths is introduced.

CTAN Update: nfssext-cfr

Clea F. Rees submitted an update to the

                nfssext-cfr

package.

Version:  2010-07-17
License:  lppl1.3

Summary description:  Extensions to the LaTeX NFSS.

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

 The package is an extension of nfssext.sty, which is distributed
 with the font installation guide.

 Includes an attempt to improve \ofstyle and microtype support for
 variant families.

 There is no change to the available commands or package support. (No
 new features, no shocking disappearances.) It is possible that it may
 result in changes to line breaks if a document uses microtype, although
 I am not sure that it will actually do so. (It shouldn't make a
 difference for cfr-lm and I'm not sure that anything else with
 microtype support uses it.)

 The reason for the difference in version and publication dates is that
 I forgot that I was testing it and just discovered I'm using a local
 copy 5 years on.

Summary description: Drop-in replacement for the `ocgx' package; adds support for dvips+ps2pdf,
XeLaTeX, dvipdfmx

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Package `ocgx2' replaces the now obsolete `fixocgx' package.

The intent of `ocgx2' is to be a drop-in replacement for the already existing package `ocgx' by Paul Gaborit.

It re-implements the functionality of the `ocg', `ocgx' and `ocg-p' packages and adds support for all
known engines and 
back-ends including:

   *  LaTeX --> dvips --> ps2pdf/Distiller
   *  (Xe)LaTeX --> (x)dvipdfmx
   *  pdfLaTeX, luaLaTeX

To enable dvipdfmx support, pass `dvipdfmx' globally as a class option.

Also, it adds some minor improvements, such as package options, remembering option settings of re-opened
ocgs, correct

CTAN update: ctanify

Scott Pakin submitted an update to the

                ctanify

package.

Version number: 1.6
License type: lppl

Summary description: Prepare a package for upload to CTAN.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
ctanify is intended for developers of LaTeX packages who want to
distribute their packages via the Comprehensive TeX Archive Network
(CTAN).  Given a list of filenames, ctanify creates a tarball
(a .tar.gz file) with the files laid out in CTAN's preferred
structure.  The tarball additionally contains a ZIP (.zip) file with
copies of all files laid out in the standard TeX Directory Structure
(TDS), which facilitates inclusion of the package in the TeX Live
distribution of TeX.

Version 1.6 introduces a --tex option that facilitates packaging
non-LaTeX packages (e.g., Plain TeX or ConTeXt).
