CTAN Update: IEEEtrantools
I am pleased to announce the release of the v1.3 update to the IEEEtrantools LaTeX package. IEEEtrantools.sty provides several commands from IEEEtran.cls, including \IEEEPARstart and the IEEEeqnarray family so that they may be used under other class files. Version 1.3 is based on version 1.8 of IEEEtran.cls. Notable changes include: 1) No longer redefines the standard LaTeX itemize, enumerate and description (IED) lists by default. (e.g., the older package option "retainorgcmds" is now the default behavior.) A new package option, "redeflists", can be invoked to redefine the standard IED list environments to their IEEE versions. IEEEitemize, IEEEenumerate and IEEEdescription remain available in any case. The redeflists option may not be compatible with other packages that alter the standard IED list environments. 2) Added new *-forms of \IEEEyesnumber*, \IEEEnonumber*, \IEEEyessubnumber*, and \IEEEnosubnumber* (the non-star form of the latter is also new) which persist across IEEEeqnarray lines until countermanded. To provide for continued subequations across instances of IEEEeqnarrays as well as for subequations that follow a main equation (e.g., 14, 14a, 14b ...) \IEEEyessubnumber no longer automatically increments the equation number on it's first invocation of a subequation group. Invoke both \IEEEyesnumber\IEEEyessubnumber together to start a new equation/subequation group. 3) Hyperref links now work with IEEEeqnarray equations. Thanks to Stefan M. Moser for reporting this problem. 4) Now provides the IEEEproof environment, as well as the \IEEEQEDhere, \IEEEQEDhereeqn and \IEEEQEDoff commands. Also, \IEEEproofindentspace allows users to change the IEEEproof indentation via \renewcommand. Thanks to Mark D. Butala, Hennadiy Leontyev and Stefan M. Moser for suggesting this. Special thanks to Stefan M. Moser for beta testing and additional suggestions which improved IEEEproof. See the changelog.txt file for full details. Enjoy! Mike Shell

ieeetrantools – Functionality from IEEEtran for use with other classes
The package provides several commands from the IEEEtran class file so that they can be used under other LaTeX classes; the package should not be used in a document that uses that parent class. The user guide only covers the ways in which usage differs from that in the parent class; thus the documentation of that class should be regarded as part of the documentation for the package.
