CTAN Package update: rotating

Date: May 19, 2008 12:34:18 PM CEST
I have installed an update of the rotating package (which I maintain). Changes in v 2.15 -- A fair bit of work on the .dtx, so that the manual is more useful -- Horizontal position of rotated floats on their page is controllable -- Redone the code on auto-rotating of floats in two-side documents; I believe i've solved the problem reported on comp.text.tex recently A .tds.zip file is available. Users can review the catalogue entry at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/help/Catalogue/entries/rotating.html or browse the distribution directory at http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/rotating/ (I would appreciate reports of continuing problems with auto-rotation of floats.)

rotating – Rotation tools, including rotated full-page floats

A package built on the standard graphics package to perform all the different sorts of rotation one might like, including complete figures and tables with their captions.

If you want continuous text (i.e., more than one page) set in landscape mode, use the lscape package instead. The rotating packages only deals in rotated boxes (or floats, which are themselves boxes), and boxes always stay on one page.

If you need to use the facilities of the float in the same document, load rotating.sty via rotfloat, which smooths the path between the rotating and float packages.

The package is now part of the latex-graphics bundle, which is one of the collections in the ‘required’ set of packages.
