CTAN upload: The umlaute package v2.1

Date: February 1, 2006 9:14:11 PM CET
On Wed, 1 Feb 2006 Axel Sommerfeldt submitted The umlaute package v2.1 to CTAN. This is some kind of pre-historic `inputenc' package. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/umlaute/ License type: lppl Announcement text:
This about-10-years-overdue update reduces the `umlaute' package to a simple loader of the `inputenc' package. (And gives an `obsolete' warning.) But the input encoding definition files `atari.def' (for ATARI ST(E)/TT/Falcon(TM)) and `roman8' (for HP-UX(TM)) are still usefull since they are missing in the LaTeX2e `inputenc' package distribution. (These 2 files have been cleaned up from the crap inside and have been adapted to the current `inputenc' package.)
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Sch�pf

umlaute – German input encodings in

An early package for using alternate input encodings.

The author considers the package mostly obsolete, since most of its functions are taken by the inputenc package; however, inputenc doesn't support the roman8 and atari encodings, so umlaute remains the sole source of that support.
