NOTE: The original author of this package, Carsten Heinz, became inactive 
sometime in late 2004.  Hendri Adriaens took over maintenance of the 
package in accordance with the LPPL's procedure for abandoned packages.  
He then passed the maintainership of the package to Brooks Moses, who 
had volunteered for the position while this procedure was going through.  

This release, version 1.4, is the first major bugfix release in 
nearly three years, and contains fixes for a number of minor bugs 
and package conflicts, as well as some new functionality:

* Many small improvements to the documentation.

* Short inline listings, like so: |i = 1 + 2;|.

* A new flexible-column option which only stretches existing spaces.

* A new string type with multi-character delimiters.

* An option to turn off by-chapter numbering of listing captions.

* Better integration with KOMAscript and AMS document classes.

* Several new language definitions.
