Announcement text: 
The svn-multi package got updated and now includes a good
amount of
new fancy features:

Keyword/File groups:
Several files (actually their keywords) can be grouped
together and
the latest revision information of each group can be typeset
in the document.

Support for External Files:
External files can be declared inside the document and their
can be included using the provided Perl script
"svn-multi.pl". This
files count as part of the current file and group.

Table of Revisions:
A table of revisions can be produced and included which
holds the
revision information of the complete document, the declared
groups and all files.

Automatic Declaration of Images as External Files:
To not have the trouble of declaring all included images
manually as
external files an feature is provided to handle them
Currently the 'graphics' (includes 'graphicx') and the 'pgf'
is supported.

Automatic Declaration of all Files as Subgroups:
All input files can be automatically declared as subgroups
(in addition to normal groups) to allow the access of their
information anywhere in the document.

New Style of the Package Manual:
The package manual style got redesigned and hyperlinks
between the
macro description and implementation were added. Additional
information for the implementation were provided.

All this features can be enabled using package options (some
depend on each other) to minimize memory usage.

This package can also be downloaded from its new project
