Announcement text: 
The achemso bundle, version 3
The achemso bundle includes a series of files for supporting
submission to the American Chemical Society.  The current
bundle includes:
- achemso.cls, a class for writing article
- achemso.sty, a more generally-useful package following
  the ACS standards
- natmove.sty, a small support package to modify the
  behaviour of natbib
- achemso.bst and biochem.bst, two BibTeX style files which
  between them cover all ACS journal styles
Version 3 is a complete re-write of the package. This is now
the *official* class for LaTeX submissions to the ACS. The
files have been tested by the publishers and work for
submission.  See:


for details.

The changes mean that users moving from version 2 should read
the documentation very carefully. The BibTeX styles now
- natbib
- mciteplus
while the package and class also *requires* notes2bib (and
natmove). The recommended method for using the BibTeX styles
is to load them using the package, i.e.


as this provides a customisable interface and also ensures
the correct packages are loaded.
