CTAN Update: chemnum

Clemens Niederberger submitted an update to the

                    chemnum

package.

Version number: 1.0
License type: lppl

Summary description: A method of numbering chemical compounds

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

 This is version 1.0 of chemnum.

 For this update the package has been rewritten from scratch.
 There are various changes some of which will break existing
 documents. (I have struggled with this decision for a while but
 then chemnum /has/ been in an experimental stage before,
 so...). While the new version undoubtedly has new bugs its
 syntax won't change anymore. So at least from the perspective
 of a user v1.0 is supposed to be stable :)

 Some of the changes have already been announced here:
 http://www.mychemistry.eu/2014/01/chemnum-v1-0-release-candidate/

 For all changes please refer to the package manual.
