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

 This is (finally) version 1.0 of dvi2bitmap.

 dvi2bitmap is a utility to convert TeX DVI files directly to
 bitmaps, without going through the complicated (and slow!)
 route of conversion via PostScript and PNM.

 It consists of a C++ library plus an application which uses it.
 The library provides a useful object model of DVI and PK files.

Announcement text:

Updates of version 1.1a (11 Jan. 2015):

- Modification of the \DeclareLex macro, which has now four arguments

  and the printed act's name.

  sure that the nomenclature macro will be only issued once per
  abbreviation.

IMPORTANT NOTICE for users who were using version 1.0.1a: the
\DeclareLex macro has changed and now requires four arguments instead
of three. Please modify your .tex documents accordingly (see
documentation).

New on CTAN: bankstatement

Josef Kleber submitted the

            bankstatement

package.

Version number: 0.9.1
License type: lppl

Summary description: A LaTeX class for bank statements based on csv data

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

 More and more banks allow their customers to download posting
 records in various formats. By using the bankstatement class,
 you can create bank statements - as long as a csv format is 
 available! At the moment, the csv-mt940 and csv-camt formats
 - used by many german Sparkassen - are supported. You can
 quite easily add support for other csv formats. Simply define
 the order of the keys in the csv data file and how to use them.

 The terminology in this class like BIC (Business Identifier
 Codes) or IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is based on
 SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area). But you can adjust the
 terminology to suit your needs.

New on CTAN: calculation

Maarten Fokkinga submitted the

                calculation

package.

Version number: 1.0
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Typesetting reasoned calculations,  also called
calculational proofs.

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

    The "calculation" environment formats reasoned calculations, also
    called calculational proofs. The notion of reasoned calculations or
    calculational proofs was originally advocated by Wim Feijen and
    Edsger Dijkstra. The "calculation" package accepts options "fleqn"
    and "leqno" (with the same effect as LaTeX options "fleqn" and
    "leqno", and inherits these from the document class), it allows
    steps and expressions to be numbered (by LaTeX equation numbers,
    obeying the LaTeX "\label" command to refer to these numbers), and
    a step doesn't take vertical space if its hint is empty.  An
    expression in a calculation  can be given a comment; it is placed
    at the side opposite to the equation numbers.  Calculations are
    allowed inside hints although numbering and commenting is then
    disabled.
