Karl Berry submitted an update to the eplain package. Version number: 3.11 License type: gpl2+ Summary description: Extended plain TeX macros Announcement text:
Eplain version 3.11 is available from CTAN via https://ctan.org/pkg/eplain and directly from https://tug.org/eplain. It's also included in TeX distributions. This minor release supports the YYYY-MM-DD date syntax in \ProvidesPackage, as well as the historical YYYY/MM/DD. General: the Eplain macro package extends and expands on the definitions in plain TeX. It's intended to provide useful definitions regardless of how a document might be formatted, such as cross-referencing by labels. Eplain was originally developed for the book TeX for the Impatient, published by Addison-Wesley in 1990. That book is now freely available, from https://ctan.org/pkg/impatient, along with several translations. It's also in TeX distributions. Please send bug reports to tex-eplain at tug.org (mailing list web interface: https://lists.tug.org/tex-eplain). Happy expanded TeXing, Karl
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/eplain More information is at https://www.ctan.org/pkg/eplain
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Manfred Lotz CTAN is run entirely by volunteers and supported by TeX user groups. Please join a user group or donate to one, see https://ctan.org/lugs .
