Announcement text: 
The usthesis class/style files are provided to typeset
reports, theses and dissertations that conform to the

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 logos.
