CTAN update: xcolor 2.08

Date: November 27, 2005 5:15:27 PM CET
On Sat, 26 Nov 2005 Uwe Kern submitted an update to the xcolor package. This package pProvides 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}. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/xcolor/ License type: lppl Announcement text:
2005/11/25 v2.08 * New features: - more flexibility for \fcolorbox arguments, e.g., \fcolorbox[gray]{0.5}[wave]{580}{test}; - \boxframe returns a frame of given dimensions; - new implementation of \f(rame)box and \fcolorbox as an extension of bug report latex/3655 to reduce pixel positioning errors in output devices; - `kernelfbox' option for those who prefer the previous \f(rame)box approach; - experimental `xcdraw' option uses PostScript commands to draw frames and color boxes in case of `dvips'. * Bugfixes: - insufficient expression type detection within \colorlet; - wrong calculation in the unit interval reduction for negative integers (affecting color series and extended color expressions).
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
