Christian Feuersänger submitted an update to the

                pgfplots

package.

Version number: 1.11
License type: gpl3

Summary description: Create normal/logarithmic plots in two and three
dimensions.

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

1.11: usability + bug fixes.
- new feature: "hide obscured x ticks=false" to disable the feature
which hides ticks
- simplified UI for symbolic coords: now, it accepts unexpandable
  dictionary entries including umlauts, undefined macros, math mode, ...
- simplified UI for symbolic coords: added magic prefix 
	[normalized]<number> to allow something like
xmin={[normalized]0.7}
- simplified UI for custom annotations: one does not need to say "axis
cs" any longer; coordinates like (1,2) are now automatically
interpreted as (axis cs:1,2)
- new feature: 'type ticklabels with struts' improves baseline
alignment of tick labels
- new feature: 'trig format plots=rad' allows to use radians in
trigonometric evaluations

CTAN Update: msu-thesis

Alan Munn submitted an update to the

                    msu-thesis

package.

Version number: 2.4
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Class for Michigan State University Master's and PhD theses

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

 The class now meets the formatting requirements as of the 2014
 Formatting Guide.  Among the highlights of the changes from the
 previous version due to changes by the Graduate School thesis
 office bureaucrats:

  - 'by' is now capitalized to 'By'

  - Degree and Field of study now on the same line

  - All TOC entries are now in bold so that they match the
    formatting of the headings themselves. (I'm not making this
    up!) To combat this I've added a [noboldtoc] option to turn
    it off. 

 It's so much better now.
