Version 6.0 of newlfm is announced.  

This is a pretty major revision of newlfm.  It corrects an inconsistency 
with geometry (by removing dependence on geometry).  It incorporates several 
missing components from the page.  

Most importantly, Version 6.0 incorporates a keyed-value approach to 
parameter setting.  Rather than setting all parameters using the options 
section of the \documentclass command, the keyed-value approach allows the 
parameters to be set using several keyed-value parameters (i.e., 
\LetterP{stdletter,nofromaddr} ).  These allow the entire composition of the 
letter (dimensions, etc.) to be stored and used as callable values from the 
letter database file.
