IEEEtran is a LaTeX class for authors of the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers (IEEE) transactions journals and conferences.
The latest version of the IEEEtran package can be found at CTAN:

Version 1.8b has a number of significant changes over the v1.8a release.
For a full history of changes, please read the file changelog.txt.
The most notable changes in this release include:

 1) Added new comsoc mode for the IEEE Communications Society.
    This mode (at present) only invokes the use of the newtxmath math fonts.
 2) Revised IEEEeqnarray column specifications to work with active " 
    (or other punctuation catcode changes) as with babel under the
    german or ngerman language modes. 
    Thanks to Stefan M. Moser for reporting this problem.

 3) Added \indexspace and other index related macros as newer versions of
    article.cls now do. These macros are needed to avoid an error when
    using the glossaries package.
    Thanks to Sebastian Nyberg for suggesting this change.

 4) Fixed odd/even page header font bug under compsoc mode and
    other page style code improvements.
    Thanks to Marco Paolieri for reporting this problem.

 5) Added hooks to allow for easy control of spacing above title.

 6) Added the \IEEEnoauxwrite command.
    Thanks to Sudarshan Mukherjee for suggesting this feature.

NOTE: Take care not to confuse the "comsoc" and "compsoc" class
options/modes as they are very different:

comsoc  ==> IEEE Communications Society
compsoc ==> IEEE Computer Society

The comsoc mode requires that an acceptable Times math font be available on
the LaTeX system. This requirement will be enforced by IEEEtran in comsoc
mode. Either the freely available newtxmath font by Michael Sharpe
(version 1.451, July 28, 2015 or later is recommended)
or the commercial MathTime font (e.g., mtpro2.sty) is acceptable.
See Section II-D (2.4) "Class Options - comsoc, compsoc, transmag" of
the IEEEtran HOWTO for more details.

Best wishes for all your publication endeavors,

Michael Shell
