New on CTAN: filedate
`filedate.sty' provides basic access to the date of a LaTeX source file according to its \ProvidesFile, \ProvidesPackage, or \ProvidesClass entry -- the "info date" --, as well as to its modification date according to \pdffilemoddate if the latter is available. Moreover commands are provided to compare the "info date" with the modification date, with "today"'s date, or with another date that a script accessing modifica- tion dates such as adhocfilelist.sh may insert, and to choose the effect of comparisons (error vs. "notice", reference date characterization). Thus updating the "info date" ("date con- sistency") of a source file may be ensured by a test during typesetting from it or by some (shell/TeX) script. In fact the test today admonished me to update the documentation source and driver `filedate.tex'. Another motivating example of "date inconsistency" was `nicefilelist' v0.6 as of 2012-10-11 (see version history) with "info date" 2012/10/03. REQUIRED PACKAGES: `readprov' for two commands
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/filedate . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/filedate (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
