package xstring update
version v1.5   2008/12/31

This package does not require LaTeX (but eTeX is required).
Consequently, the xstring.tex file should be installed in
the tex/ subtree.

===========
Changes
===========
* New feature : a group between braces has an identifier
qualifying its position and its nestling depth.
In an argument, a group can be found with its identifier
with the macro \StrFindGroup. Several macros of the package
also give the identifier of the group they worked into with
the command \groupID.
* Code improvment.
* Bugfixes.
