CTAN Update: shadethm

Date: January 9, 2020 8:06:22 PM CET
Jim Hefferon submitted an update to the shadethm package. Version: 2020-01-08 License: lppl Summary description: Theorem environments that are shaded Announcement text:
This package is obsolete. The package colors the body of theorem environments, but it appeared in 1995 and much better options are available today. If you are starting a new project then you should use a more modern package.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/shadethm The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/shadethm/

Shaded theorems – Theorem environments that are shaded

Extends the \newtheorem command. If you say \newshadetheorem{theorem}{Theorem} in the preamble then your regular \begin{theorem} .. \end{theorem} will produce a theorem statement in a shaded box. It supports all the options of \newtheorem, including forms \newshadetheorem{..}[..]{..} and \newshadetheorem{..}{..}[..].

Environments declared using the package require their body to remain on one page; the mdframed package can frame and shade theorems, and its environments break at the end of a page; users are generally recommended, therefore, to use mdframed.

In the same spirit, the author told us in January 2020: “These materials are obsolete. There are a number of more recent, more powerful packages that have capabilities that greatly extend the simple ones here. A new project should use one of those. These files only continue to be available to help people who are working with an old project.”
