CTAN update: lettrine

Date: January 21, 2024 5:30:42 PM CET
Daniel Flipo submitted an update to the lettrine package. Version number: 2.60 2024-01-20 License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Typeset dropped capitals Announcement text:
The `\lettrine` command is now compatible with right to left typesetting, both with `LuaLaTeX` and `XeLaTeX` (`babel` or `polyglossia`). A basic example `lettrine-demo-arabic.tex` has been added to the `doc` directory. Currently with XeLaTeX, file `lettrine-xetex-bidi.def` (v0.8 [2022/11/06]) is automatically loaded by the `bidi` package; it redefines the `\@lettrine`command based on version 2.30 of `lettrine`. This code breaks versions 2.50 and newer of the `lettrine` package, you can now safely remove `lettrine-xetex-bidi.def` if you install `lettrine` v2.60.

lettrine – Typeset dropped capitals

The lettrine package supports various dropped capitals styles, typically those described in the French typographic books. In particular, it has facilities for the paragraph text’s left edge to follow the outline of capitals that have a regular shape (such as “A” and “V”).
