Nicola Talbot has uploaded a new version of the glossary package:

The package supports generation of a glossary with makeindex.  It has
a certain amount of flexibility allowing the user to customize the
format of the glossary and define new glossary-style objects so that
you can have more than one type of glossary in your document.

> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> Version 2.4:
> Fixed problems caused by \@sanitize (\storeglosentry is now robust).
> Extended package option "number" to be used with any counter (not
> just page or section).
> Added number key to \setglossarystyle.
> Removed some redundant code. 
> Fixed problems caused with hyperlinks when using a mixture of
> counters for individual entries.  
> Added extra \hyper<xx> page formats. 
> Added hook to provide a sub header when using a tabular style glossary.
> Added means of specifying a column header for page list column. 
> Added facility to insert text between groups.
> Fixed bug in documentation when omitting \OnlyDescription
