Summary description: LaTeX2e package providing a new class for building 
  conference proceedings.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
The confproc package is a LaTeX document-class for building conference 
proceedings. Version 0.4e enhances the package and fixes several issues:
- package:
  - redefine \thebibliography to avoid inserting a phantom item to set 
    the introductory paragraph (thanks to Will Robertson); 
  - redefine \frontmatter, \mainmatter, \backmatter, \tableofcontents, 
    etc, to take into acount layout and formatting issues;
  - page layout defined with the geometry package (thanks to Will Robertson)
  - bug correction: have \hypersetup evaluated only at the document 
    beginning (then taking into account the user changes in the PDF 
  - remove formatting from footer and name-like commands: author, 
    title, etc. (thanks to Will Robertson); 
  - use mathptmx package instead of times package, and nth package instead 
    of \textsuperscript command (thanks to Will Robertson); 
  - allows to insert 1-page long papers (did not work in v0.3 and previous); 
  - instead of replacing each paper’s last page by the list of its 
    bibliography items, print them on top of the header of the last page; 
  - documentation: changes history re-organized using macro environment 
- example updated:
  - to account for those changes (shorter code)
  - .bib files included (were missing in v0.3)!
