- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm happy to announce a new *major* release of FiXme, a
package for inserting fixme notes in your documents,
version 2.0. Many new features in this release, including
a new layout option (inline), notes counters, a usage
summary at the end of processing, more translations, and
most important, three additional macros for including 
non-critical notes (meta comments about the document
actualy) of different importance levels.

FiXme provides you with a way of inserting fixme notes in
your documents. Such notes can appear inline, as marginal
notes, footnotes, index entries, in the log file and as
warnings on stdout. It is also possible to summarize them
in a list. When you switch from draft to final mode, any
remaining fixme note will be logged, but removed from the
document's body. Additionally, critical notes will abort
compilation with an informative message. FiXme also comes
with support for AUC-TeX.
