CTAN Update: nicefilelist

Date: November 2, 2012 7:23:55 PM CET
Uwe Lück submitted an update to the nicefilelist package. Summary description: \listfiles alignment with date and version columns License type: lppl Announcement text:
In the output from LaTeX's \listfiles, `nicefilelist.sty' keeps separate columns for (i) date, (ii) version, and (iii) "caption" of LaTeX source files according to their \Provides... statements. The alignment is not disturbed by long base filenames or short filename extensions such as `.fd'. The "specification" is Martin Muench's. v0.7 deals with another challenge from the latter: a package option `[wrap]' provides automatic word wrapping within the caption column, so filenames and captions can be quite long without disturbing the alignment. For this purpose, I finally resort to a package "not invented here": `hardwrap' by Will Robertson and Kevin Godby. As opposed to the `dateiliste' package, this is in fact about the plain text output in the .log file or, with the `myfilist' package, as a stand-alone plain text file. LICENSE: LPPL 1.3, no responsibility can be accepted when your monitor bursts.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

nicefilelist – Provide \listfiles alignment

The package extends longnamefilelist, keeping separate columns for date, version and “caption” (the caption now separately listed). Alignment is not disturbed by short file name extensions, such as “.fd”.

The package is not compatible with longnamefilelist: users need to re-read the documentation.
