Announcement text: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------
This package puts the labels LastPage (\AtEndDocument) and
VeryLastPage (\AfterLastShipout) into the .aux file,
allowing the user to refer to the (very) last page of a
document. This might be particularly useful in places like
headers or footers.
When more than one page numbering scheme is used, these
references do not give the total number of pages. For this
case the label LastPages is introduced. Additionally, at the
last page of each page numbering scheme a label
pagesLTS.<numbering scheme> is placed, where
<numbering scheme> is e. g. arabic, roman, Roman, alph, or
Alph. For fnsymbol please use
\lastpageref{pagesLTS.fnsymbol} instead of
\pageref{pagesLTS.fnsymbol}. When the same numbering scheme
is used twice, the page numbers are either reset to one or
continued automatically, depending on the option given when
the package is called. The command \theCurrentPage prints
the current total/absolute page number - in contrast to
\thepage, which gives only the page name in the current page
numbering scheme. \theCurrentPageLocal gives the current
number of pages in the current page numbering scheme.
\thepage and \theCurrentPageLocal are different e. g. when
\addtocounter{pageg}{...} or \setcounter{page}{...} were
used.
At the first page of the document a label pagesLTS.0 is
created. This label can be referred to, too. Further labels
are provided for special cases.
The alphalph package is supported, i. e. page numbers alph
or Alph > 26 and fnyambol > 9 can be used (with according
options set). Even zero and negative page numbers can be
used with arabic, alph, Alph, roman, Roman, and fnsymbol
page numbering (with alphalph package and according
options).
