On Tue, 4 Jan 2005 Patrick Happel uploaded an 
update of his package 


to CTAN.

There are a lot of packages for typesetting units in LaTeX2e.  Some define 
macros to typeset a lot of units but do not suit to the actual font 
settings, some make the characters needed available but do not predefine 
any unit.

This package tries to comply with both requirements. It predefines common 
units, defines an easy to use interface to define new units and changes 
the output concerning to the surrounding font settings.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/unitsdef/
Summary description: Typesetting units in LaTeX2e
License type: lppl
Announcement text:
This is an update of unitsdef to version 0.2. It includes some bugfixes, 
all units are robust now, a configuration file is supported and unitsdef 
now uses xspace to simplify the writing process. There are some new 
options to exclude some abbreviations to avoid conflicts with macros 
defined by other packages.

Thanks for the update.

For the CTAN Team
