On Sun, 16 Jul 2006, David Kastrup submitted the


package to CTAN. This will-publicized bundle is now available from
CTAN for the first time.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/bigfoot
Summary description: bigfoot bundle for typesetting footnotes
License type: GPL

Announcement text:
This is the bigfoot bundle for critical typesetting, consisting of the
packages bigfoot, perpage and suffix.

The package aims to provide a "one-stop" solution to requirements for
footnotes.  It offers:
 -- Multiple footnote apparatus superior to that of manyfoot;
 -- Footnotes can be formatted in separate paragraphs, or be run into
    a single paragraph (this choice may be selected per footnote
 -- Things you might have expected (like \verb-like material in
    footnotes, and colour selections over page breaks) now work.

perpage supersedes perpage.sty in macros/latex/contrib/misc, the
latter was removed to avoid confusion.

Thanks for the upload.

For the CTAN Team,

     Joachim Schrod
