CTAN update: glossaries

Nicola Talbot submitted an update to the

                glossaries

package.

Version number: 4.04
License type: lppl

Summary description: Create glossaries and lists of acronyms.

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

 * glossaries.sty:

  - There are now three ways of creating glossaries:
    (1) using makeindex;
    (2) using xindy;
    (3) using TeX (new this version).

    The new method (using TeX instead of makeindex/xindy)
    uses the new commands: \makenoidxglossaries,
    \printnoidxglossary and \printnoidxglossaries
    (Analogous to \makeglossaries, \printglossary
    and \printglossaries).

    This new method allows independent sort methods for
    individual glossaries, which isn't available for the
    makeindex/xindy methods.

Conference, beginning with IDCC15. An earlier version of ijdc-v9.cls

CTAN Update: etoc

Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the

                      etoc

package.

Version number: 1.07k
License type: lppl

Summary description: Completely customisable TOCs

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

 Etoc and tocloft may now be used concurrently in the same
 document. In compatibility mode, etoc will obey the customizing
 done by tocloft both for the contents and the title of the
 table of contents; etoc's depth tags, \localtableofcontents,
 label+ref mechanism are functional. It is possible to use etoc
 contents and title styles for one TOC and tocloft's for another
 one (tocloft should be loaded before etoc, else a warning will
 be issued.)

 Also, better compatibility with the memoir class, 

 and one more example of etoc line styles specification has been
 added to the documentation.
