CTAN update: xkeyval v1.8

Date: December 14, 2004 1:55:41 AM CET
On Mon, 13 Dec 2004, Hendri Adriaens submitted version 1.8 of his xkeyval package. This package is an extension of the keyval package and offers additional macros for setting keys and declaring and setting class or package options. The package allows the programmer to specify a prefix to the name of the macros it defines for keys, and to define families of key definitions; these all help use in documents where several packages define their own sets of keys. The license is lppl. The location on CTAN is macros/latex/contrib/xkeyval Note that the official location has changed since the last update and is not macros/generic/xkeyval anymore! Changes: 1) fixed a small bug in the treatment of spaces in key and family names. These spaces are now untouched. 2) bug in \@selective at sanitize has been fixed and level control has been added 3) the package is robust for catcode changes of = and , but characters with changed catcode inside key values are left untouched so, for instance, babel shorthand notation with the `=' character is possible, if it is inside a group in the key value. 4) simplified some internal macros. Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
