2005/11/12 v2.07 * New features: - color model `Hsb' allows to specify hue in degrees; - color model `tHsb' (`tuned Hsb') for user-defined hue configuration on color wheels; - easy generation of color harmonies derived from `Hsb' or `tHsb' color wheels, e.g., \color{red>wheel,1,12} yields an `analogous' color to `red' on a 12-spoke wheel; - additional 317 predefined color names according to rgb.txt, which is part of Unix/X11 distributions; - `svgnames' option extended by 4 colors taken from rgb.txt; - enhanced syntax for immediate conversion, e.g., \definecolor{foo}{rgb:gray}{0.3} or \color[rgb:wave]{478}; - \@ifundefinedcolor and \@ifundefinedmodel commands; * Changes: - enhanced documentation; - several changes to internal macros. * Bugfixes: - wrong calculation of color series components in some cases of negative step parameters.
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

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}.
