THIS RELEASE FIXES SOME CRITICAL BUGS ===================================== Half an hour after the class had been announced on the CTAN-Ann mailing list, I recieved the first notification regarding a missing \fi command that caused \maketitle to crash. A patch has thankfully been provided by Sébastien Le Callonnec. This version (2018/01/22) should be bug-free now.

## fancyhandout – A LaTeX class for producing nice-looking handouts

This package breaks with some of ’s principles and redefines basic commands with the aim of producing well-designed and clearly structured handouts: A sans-serif font is used by default; sections are not numbered, but highlighted by underlining; head- and footline display document information; and in order to avoid too much whitespace around the text the margin sizes are adjusted to smaller values.

All in all, fancyhandout provides a means of typesetting documents not exclusively consisting of running text in a beautiful way.

fancyhandout depends on the following other packages: csquotes, enumitem, etoolbox, fancyhdr, geometry, and xcolor.
