Announcement text:

* Version 1.1 (2016-07-06):

- The package now uses PSNFSS font commands if available (fallback for
  LaTeX 2.09 is still provided).

- Work around clash with classes/packages that define their own example
  and examples environments (most notably the beamer class) or execise
  environments. The covington package no longer blindly attempts to
  define these environments. By default, it does not define them if
  they are already defined (covington's own environments, however, are
  still available via aliases). By means of a new package option, a
  redefinition can also be forced.

- New length \twoaccsep allows for the adjustment of the distance
  between stacked accents.

- Update manual.
