# CTAN Update: minipage-marginpar

Date: April 8, 2008 8:56:09 PM CEST
On Mon, 7 Apr 2008 Paul Ebermann submitted an update to the minipage-marginpar package. Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/minipage-marginpar Summary description: Package-update: minipage-marginpar (bugfix and namechange) License type: lppl Announcement text:
This package allows \marginpar -commands inside of minipages and other boxes. (It takes another approach than marginnote by Markus Kohm: it saves all \marginpar -commands and typesets them outside (i.e., after) the box.) Version 0.3 fixes a bug, which caused marginpars of some kind only appearing on odd pages, not even ones. In my documents I don't have much of those, so I remarked it only now, nearly two years after version 0.2 (which introduced this bug, fixing another one). At the same time, i decided to change the name of the package files from "mpgmpar" to "minipage-marginpar", as already is the CTAN directory name. (There is a compatibility style file, which simply loads the new one.)
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/minipage-marginpar . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?minipage-marginpar (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear).

## minipage-marginpar – Minipages with marginal notes

This package allows \marginpar-commands inside of minipages and other boxes. (It takes another approach than marginnote by Markus Kohm: it saves all \marginpar-commands and typesets them outside (i.e., after) the box.)

The package defines an environment minipagewithmarginpars (to be used like minipage)—and the internal commands may be used by other packages to define similar environments or commands.
