CTAN Update: adjustbox

Date: August 13, 2011 5:12:44 PM CEST
On Sat, 13 Aug 2011 Martin Scharrer submitted an update to the adjustbox package. License type: lppl Announcement text:
This major update provides the following new features: * Additional provided box macros: \lapbox, \marginbox, \minsizebox, \maxsizebox and \phantombox. * Additional key options for \adjustbox which can be exported for \includegraphics as well. * Now uses the authors other package 'collectbox' which is based on the original used code. * The trimming operation is now done using only TeX code. * The clipping operation is now implemented using native pdftex commands. Other output drivers will still use PGF as back-end. * Now uses e-TeX \glueexpr by default to parse all length arguments, but can be configured to use the 'calc' package or the \pgfsetlength macro of PGF. Older documents might require now the 'pgfmath' option to be used if they included pgfmath expressions.

adjustbox – Graphics package-alike macros for “general” boxes

The package provides several macros to adjust boxed content. One purpose is to supplement the standard graphics package, which defines the macros \resizebox, \scalebox and \rotatebox , with the macros\trimbox and \clipbox. The main feature is the general \adjustbox macro which extends the “key=value” interface of \includegraphics from the graphics package and applies it to general text content. Additional provided box macros are \lapbox, \marginbox, \minsizebox, \maxsizebox and \phantombox.

All macros use the collectbox package to read the content as a box and not as a macro argument. This allows for all forms of content including special material like verbatim content. A special feature of collectbox is used to provide matching environments with the identical names as the macros.
