CTAN update and new package: morefloats
Instead of a fixed value of maxfloats=18 (TeX standard) or 36 (morefloats 1.0b) now the morefloats package 1.0c enables you to get the number of floats you need - whether this number is less than 36 or more (well, between 18 and whatever TeX's memory permits).
This package is at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/morefloats/ . Information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/morefloats (it may take a day for the information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . For your users group see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
morefloats – Increase the number of simultaneous LaTeX floats
LaTeX can, by default, only cope with 18 outstanding floats; any more, and you get the error “too many unprocessed floats”. This package releases the limit; TeX itself imposes limits (which are independent of the help offered by e-TeX).
However, if your floats can’t be placed anywhere, extending the number of floats merely delays the arrival of the inevitable error message.
