Announcement text: 

tcolorbox provides an environment for colored and framed text boxes with a 
heading line. Optionally, such a box can be splitted in an upper and a lower 
part. The package tcolorbox can be used for the setting of LaTeX examples where 
one part of the box displays the source code and the other part shows the 
output. Another common use case is the setting of theorems. The package supports 
saving and reuse of source code and text parts.
