2003/11/21 v1.05 * Bugfixes: - Package option `hideerrors' should now work as expected. - Usage of `.' in the first color expression in a document caused an error due to incorrect initialisation. * Code re-organisation: \extractcolorspec now uses \XC at splitcolor, making \XC at extract obsolete.
Thanks for the upload. I installed it as suggested replacing the previous version in CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/xcolor Reinhard Zierke for the CTAN team

xcolor – Driver-independent color extensions for and pdf

The package starts from the basic facilities of the color package, and provides easy driver-independent access to several kinds of color tints, shades, tones, and mixes of arbitrary colors. It allows a user to select a document-wide target color model and offers complete tools for conversion between eight color models. Additionally, there is a command for alternating row colors plus repeated non-aligned material (like horizontal lines) in tables. Colors can be mixed like \color{red!30!green!40!blue}.
