----- Forwarded message from Harald Harders -----
I have uploaded the file numprint-1_10.tar.gz to ftp.dante.de. It contains
a new version of the numprint package. Please replace all files in
CTAN:macros/latex/contrib/numprint by its contents. And ignore the file
numprint-1_00.tar.gz that I have uploaded a few days ago. License stays

>From the README:

Print numbers with a separator every three digits and convert numbers
given as 12345.6e789 to 12\,345,6\cdot 10^{789}. Numbers are printed
in the current mode (text or math) in order to use the correct font.
  Many things, including the decimal sign, the thousand separator, as
well as the product sign can be changed by the user, e.g., to reach
12,345.6\times 10^{789}. If requested, numprint can round numbers to
a given number of digits.
  If an optional argument is given it is printed upright as unit.
Numbers can be rounded to a given number of digits.
  The package supports an automatic, language-dependent change of the
number format.
  Tabular alignment using the tabular(*), array, tabularx, and longtable
environments (similar to the dcolumn and rccol packages) is supported
using all features of numprint. Additional text can be added before and
after the formatted number.

If you prefer to use the old version 0.32 you may use numprint032.sty
which will stay fixed.

The main new features are automatic language support and a really usable
tabular alignment.

Change log:
- 1.10  2003/10/12  New tabular aligment mechanism (now comparable to
                      dcolumn and rccol) with full support of all
                      numprint formats.
                    Math version npbold which aligns with normal math
                    Don't use substr package.
                    Provide \npmakebox command that works as \makebox
                      but takes a text instead of a length for calculating
                      its width.
- 1.00  2003/10/07  Automatically add a plus to numbers without sign.
                    Define shortcut \np for \numprint on demand.
                    Automatic support for different number formats in
                      different languages (already supported are
                      English and German).
                    Better argument parsing.
                    Automatically don't separate degree sign from number.
                    Customize input characters (decimal sign, exponent
                    Define a list of ignored characters.
                    User defined signs exceeding +,-, and \pm.
                    Load configuration file if present.
                    Improved calculation of box width for mantissa and
                    Entirely new implementation (about 90% new code).

Thanks for the upload.  I installed the new version as suggested replacing
