Daniel Flipo submitted an update to the lettrine package. Version: 2.52 2023-08-14 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset dropped capitals Announcement text:
New option `viewport=` for the `\lettrine` command: when the dropped cap is an image, it is passed to `\includegraphics` so that `\lettrine` only considers the contents of the rectangle defined by its lower left and upper right corners to compute the size of the final image. See https://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/693270/ for a possible usage.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/lettrine The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/lettrine/

lettrine – Typeset dropped capitals

The lettrine package supports various dropped capitals styles, typically those described in the French typographic books. In particular, it has facilities for the paragraph text’s left edge to follow the outline of capitals that have a regular shape (such as “A” and “V”).
