Summary description: Release 3.5
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
This is the significant release of the bundle. 

The bug in the nccthm package that occasionally appears in the previous 
release was fixed. 

The addtopackage package introduced in the previous release and its 
\AddToPackage command are renamed to afterpackage and \AfterPackage 
respectively. New names more exactly reflect the meaning of the package. 
I did it because the package is a new enough and I think it is used rarely 

In nccfloats package, the syntax of \FloatStyle is expanded with optional 
float-type parameter. Float styles are applied now to the base floating 
environment also. The generic \newminifloat command is introduced.

In nccsect package, \SetTOCStyle and \ChapterPrefixStyle commands are 
introduced. They are moved from ncclatex bundle. Section style creation 
commands \newhangsectionstyle and \newplainsectionstyle are introduced. 
They essentially improve the possibility of making new section styles 
such as sections with marginal section numbers, flushed right section 
headers and many others. The 'centerlast' section style is introduced. 
The customization of section and caption tag suffices is now allowed 
with \sectiontagsuffix and \captiontagsuffix commands. Margins of display 
sections can be adjusted using the \adjustsectionmargins command. 
Compatibility with xtab package is added. Caption width can now exceed 
a line width.
