On Mon, 14 Nov 2011 Martin Schar­rer sub­mit­ted an up­date to the ad­just­box pack­age. Li­cense type: lppl An­nounce­ment text:
Changelog: * Up­date of the man­ual. * Added driver files for dvips and xe­la­tex. Moved pdf­tex driver code to own file. * Fixed and im­proved de­fault unit code for the `calc` op­tion. * Changed \ad­jus­tim­age code to use in­ter­nals of \in­clude­graph­ics. This al­lows the re­def­i­ni­tion of \in­clude­graph­ics. * Added man­ual for `bg­color` and added `bg­color*`. * Changed `bgim­age` to use `\ad­jus­tim­age`. * Added man­ual en­tries for `cf­box` and `cframe`. * Re­moved load­ing of non-manda­tory `store­box` pack­age for now. * Added `set vsize`. * Added short­cuts `rlap` and `llap`. * Added \ad­jin­clude­graph­ics and the Ex­port op­tion. * Fix for `in­nerenv` ar­gu­ment. * Added lengths \Width, \Height, \Depth and \To­tal­height for the orig­i­nal di­men­sions of the con­tent. * Added own raise­box vari­ant to sup­port math ex­pres­sions even for \in­clude­graph­ics. * Some code cleanup. * Added `var­width` key as an al­ter­na­tive to `mini­page`. * Added \stack­box and `stack` key and `stack­box` en­vi­ron­ment (sim­i­lar to \short­stack) * Added check for xcolor pack­age.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/macros/la­tex/con­trib/ad­just­box . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/ad­just­box (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear).

Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

ad­just­box – Graph­ics pack­age-alike macros for “gen­eral” boxes

The pack­age pro­vides sev­eral macros to ad­just boxed con­tent. One pur­pose is to sup­ple­ment the stan­dard graph­ics pack­age, which de­fines the macros \re­size­box, \scale­box and \ro­tate­box , with the macros\trim­box and \clip­box. The main fea­ture is the gen­eral \ad­just­box macro which ex­tends the “key=value” in­ter­face of \in­clude­graph­ics from the graph­ics pack­age and ap­plies it to gen­eral text con­tent. Ad­di­tional pro­vided box macros are \lap­box, \margin­box, \min­size­box, \max­size­box and \phan­tombox.

All macros use the col­lect­box pack­age to read the con­tent as a box and not as a macro ar­gu­ment. This al­lows for all forms of con­tent in­clud­ing spe­cial ma­te­rial like ver­ba­tim con­tent. A spe­cial fea­ture of col­lect­box is used to pro­vide match­ing en­vi­ron­ments with the iden­ti­cal names as the macros.
