Announcement text: 
The IEEEconf class implements the formatting dictated by the IEEE
Computer Society Press for conference proceedings
IEEEconf.cls replaces latex8.sty and is compatible with any BibTeX
style, not just latex8.bst.  The goal was to produce a more faithful
implementation of the formatting rules and to do so with cleaner LaTeX
code than that provided by the latex8.* files.

Version 1.4 of IEEEconf.cls includes a few changes to better match the
IEEE Computer Society Press's latest formatting requirements, a
"latex8" class option that retains latex8.sty's incorrect but more
space-efficient title formatting, and support for the "onecolumn"
class option in case an author wants to use the multicolumn package
along with the IEEEconf class.  Thanks to Oliver Kopp for proposing
"latex8" and "onecolumn" support and for helping with testing.
