Author's name: Stephan Hennig
Location on CTAN: /macros/latex/contrib/mcaption/
Summary description: Put captions into the outer document margin.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
This package provides a margincap environment that puts
captions into the outer document margin.

This is an incompatible update to the mcaption package!

v3.0 2009/03/13
  * Obey \caption and \label commands inside margincap
      (at last!).
  * Macro \margincapalign is deprecated (no longer
      necessary for tabular declarations).
  * New compatibility option `v2.2'.

Incompatible changes:
  * Environment margincap has no arguments.  A
      compatibility option exists, that restores the old
      syntax with caption arguments.
  * The mcaption package requires package changepage
      to be installed (instead of chngpage).
  * Complete revision of the vertical alignment
      mechanism.  Paragraph-breaking might be affected
      (hopefully only to the better).

  * In one-sided documents chngpage/changepage's
      even/odd page detection was subtly broken by the
      mcaption package.
