Name of contribution: Update: Stellenbosch thesis and other utilities - 07
Author's name: Danie Els
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/stellenbosch
Summary description: Typesetting dissertations, theses and reports of the 
  University of Stellenbosch, South Africa. 
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
The usthesis class/style files are provided to typeset reports, theses 
and dissertations that conform to the requirements of the Engineering 
Faculty of the University of Stellenbosch.

The class file usthesis.cls is based on the standard LaTeX book class, 
while usthesis.sty is a style file to be loaded on top of the very 
powerful memoir class. Both options give identical output, but the 
benefit of the using memoir is that it has many additional command and 
environments for formatting and processing of a document.

Usthesis is primarily concerned with the formatting of the front matter 
such as the title page, abstract, etc. and a decent page layout on A4 
paper. It also works together with the babel package to provide language 
options to typeset documents in Afrikaans or in English.

Additional packages are provided for bibliographic matter, note 
title pages, lists of symbols, as well as various graphic files for 


   USthesis: v4.0
    a) Fix errors in report title page
    b) Move all language specific commands to external files
