Summary description: Update to version 2.1 - Automatic extraction of keyword values 
  from Subversion working directory
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
This version adds the possibility to extract the needed
version control keyword values of LaTeX or external files
directly from the Subversion working directory. This feature
avoids the need for an external script to generate the
keyword definitions for external files (a feature introduced
by v2.0) and can also be used to make id macro completely
This feature must be explicitly enabled using the 'autokw' 
(Auto-Keywords) option. It only works with valid Subversion
working directories from Subversion v1.4 or newer but not
with exported or downloaded files. 

Technical Informations:
A TeX parser for the '.svn/entries' file which is located in
every Subversion working copy/directory is added. The
working copy format versions 8, i.e. Subversion v1.4, or
higher should be supported. The implementation was tested
with Subversion 1.5.1 under Ubuntu 8.10.

Users which encounter parsing errors or wrong results should
not hesitate to send bugreports with information about the
used Subversion version and platform to the author.

The version 2.0 released earlier this week erroneously
changed the document date (e.g. \today) to the package
release date. This has been fixed in this version.
