Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package supersedes the subfigure package (which will continue to be 
supported, but no longer maintained).  The name has changed because the 
subfig package is not completely backward compatible with the older 
subfigure package due to an extensive rewrite to use the new caption 
package to produce its subcaptions.  The major advantage to the new 
package is that the user interface is keyword/value driven and easier to 
use.  To ease the transition from the subfigure package it includes a 
configuration file (subfig.cfg) which nearly emulates the subfigure package.
