Summary description: Unofficial class for European curricula vitae
License type: lppl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:

* The default input encoding used by 'europecv' is now UTF-8, but the choice 
can be overriden by the user (the mechanism for managing input encodings 
has been changed, biased towards a less efficient, but more flexible solution. 
Now, any input encoding can be used with any language, e.g. Greek users are 
not forced to use UTF-8 anymore. Moreover, the europecv directory is not 
cluttered with many .def files for the same language anymore)
* The class now depends on the 'ucs' and 'inputenc' packages, no matter what 
input encoding the user selects (this is because the .def files are UTF-8 files)
* A class option 'booktabs' has been added, to typeset the spoken language 
table according to the 'booktabs' package rules
* Added a command \ecvlastlanguage that works with the booktabs option
* A command \ecvspace has been added, to tune the position of the personal 


* The personal picture now is typeset when \ecvpersonalinfo is issued, not at 
the beginning of the europecv environment
* Optimized eps figures.
* Lots of cosmetic changes in the code and in the output
* Expanded documentation.


* A bug that caused compilation to abort when 'notitle' was used with 
languages other than English has been solved (thanks to Massimo Coppola)

This version is still a BETA.
