On Thu, 27 Dec 2007, Morten Høgholm submitted an update to the 



The mh bundle is a series of packages designed to enhance the appearance 
of documents containing a lot of math. The main backbone is amsmath, so 
those unfamiliar with this required part of the LaTeX system will probably 
not find the packages very useful.  Component parts of the bundle are 
empheq, flexisym, mathtools, mhsetup, breqn and mathstyle; an obsolete 
version of empheq (empheq07) is also maintained with the package, for the 
benefit of older documents.

Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/mh
Summary description: breqn v0.97a, flexisym v0.96, mathstyle v0.84, technotes
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
 * New document containing technical notes on breqn.
 * First inclusion is the text from eqbreaks.pdf (original source was
   lost). eqbreaks.pdf is now removed from the distribution (name was
   misleading anyway).
Changes in breqn
 * Fixed bug with after environment punctuation. No default action was
   specified if no punctuation or space was found such as could occur
   if you had a percent sign after the dmath environment.
 * Spacing above a display preceeded by a blank line is now

 * New option shortskiplimit=<dimen> to control when to use
   \abovedisplayshortskip or \abovedisplayskip.

 * Spacing above dgroup environment fixed.

 * Tag placement for single-line equations now always align baselines
   of tag and equation. In all previous versions, C tag placement
   meant vertically center, even for single-line equations.

 * Left tag vertical positioning fixed (bug introduced in breqn

 * debug option gone, available as trace option during docstrip.

Changes in mathstyle

 * Added option mathactivechars.

Changes in flexisym

 * Fix option handling.

 * Make flexisym load cmbase by default. Additional options now just
   overwrite old definitions.
