A package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon make its way to your favorite mirror. Thanks for the update, Jim Hefferon ====================================================================== The following information was provided by the package's contributor. Name of contribution: NCCTOOLS bundle Author's name: Alexander I Rozhenko Author's email: roj at front.ru Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/ncctools Summary description: Release 3.1 License type: lppl Announcement text given by the package's contributor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- This release of the bundle contains many significant improvements listed below. Three new packages are introduced: the `ncccomma' package provides a smart comma that can work in math as an ordinary symbol or as a punctuation mark (this comma is a bit smarter than in the `icomma' package); the `mboxfill' package wraps TeX's hfill with leaders (all leader types are supported and one more case is provided --- stretched leaders); the `nccrules' package implements multiline dash rule command, dash rule fill command, and provides two commands generating new footnote rules (these rules are useful in the `manyfoot' package). In the `nccmath' package, new medium-size commands are introduced: \mfrac is an intermediate fraction between \dfrac and \tfrac; \mbinom is the medium-size binom; the \medint and \medop produce medium-size integrals and sum-like operators; mmatrix and medsize environments allow smaller matrices and formulas. In the `nccsect' package, the compatibility with the `supertabular' and `longtable' packages is provided; captions control is improved; \epigraph and \beforechapter hooks are introduced; \StartFromTextArea and \StartFromHeaderArea commands are introduced. In the `manyfoot' package, the \SetFootnoteHook command is introduced. In the `dcounter' package, an existing counter can work now as a dynamic counter. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the package at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/ncctools although you may get a better network connection by visiting a mirror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mirrors .
