No change in functionality. * Version 1.1 (2016-07-06): - The package now uses NFSS font commands if available (fallback for LaTeX 2.09 is still provided). - Work around clash with classes/packages that define their own example and examples environments (most notably the beamer class) as well as execise environments. The covington package no longer blindly attempts to define these environments. By default, it does not define them if they are already defined (covington's own environments, however, are still available via aliases). By means of a new package option, a redefinition can also be forced. - New length \twoaccsep allows for the adjustment of the distance between stacked accents. - Update manual. - New maintainer: J. Spitzmueller. - License has been changed to LPPL (in agreement with M. Covington). - Introduce version numbers. Arbitrarily, we start with 1.1.
