Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
This class is an unofficial LaTeX implementation of the standard model for 
curricula vitae (the Europass CV ) as recommended by the European 
Commission. Nonetheless, the class is flexible enough to be used for any 
kind of cv.

templates, suggest other encodings, and help me finish translating the 
following languages: Catalan, Maltese, Romanian.

Icelandic, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian. All the 
offical languages of the EU are now supported (plus Catalan).

* Added option 'koi8-r' to select Cyrillic encoding (Bulgarian)
