eFrench - French typography for LaTeX HISTORY from FrenchPro to e-French The eFrench projet is born in order to keep up to date French for (La)Tex and maintain it available for future users. FrenchPro for (La)Tex, is the result of a fifteen years work of its creator, Bernard Gaulle Beginning 1999, the FrenchPro package was marketted as shareware, and Bernard Gaulle alone owner of all rights. He died Aug. 2nd 2007. His wife Catherine Gaulle, the heiress, gave authorization in that matter to the eFrench group in order to maintain the whole work in the future. The project is maintained by a small group started by Laurent Bloch and hosted by Tux Family: http://projects.tuxfamily.org/group.pl?name=efrench, email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The credit for this piece of work remains with the first and main author, Bernard Gaulle.

French.sty is the FrenchPro's version with shareware test removed and updated to a new version. MIGRATING FROM FRENCHLE There are only these things to do: - replace "frenchle" with "french" in the \usepackage calling it. - if in use please rename frenchle.cfg to french.cfg and adapt it. - Within it, please desactivate the things with '�' and '�', if they were active. Enjoy. Raymond Juillerat for the e-french group
