Summary description: Release 3.1

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This release of the bundle contains many significant improvements listed
below.

Three new packages are introduced: the `ncccomma' package provides a
smart comma that can work in math as an ordinary symbol or as a punctuation
mark (this comma is a bit smarter than in the `icomma' package); the
`mboxfill' package wraps TeX's hfill with leaders (all leader types are
supported and one more case is provided --- stretched leaders); the
`nccrules' package implements multiline dash rule command, dash rule
fill command, and provides two commands generating new footnote rules
(these rules are useful in the `manyfoot' package).

In the `nccmath' package, new medium-size commands are introduced:
\mfrac is an intermediate fraction between \dfrac and \tfrac; \mbinom
is the medium-size binom; the \medint and \medop produce medium-size
integrals and sum-like operators; mmatrix and medsize environments allow
smaller matrices and formulas.

In the `nccsect' package, the compatibility with the `supertabular' and
`longtable' packages is provided; captions control is improved; \epigraph
and \beforechapter hooks are introduced; \StartFromTextArea and
\StartFromHeaderArea commands are introduced.

In the `manyfoot' package, the \SetFootnoteHook command is introduced.

In the `dcounter' package, an existing counter can work now as a dynamic
counter.
