Summary description: A modern curriculum vitae class.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: Yes
version 0.15 (19 December 2011)
 - corrects list spacing.
 - corrects inconsistent use of sans serif fonts in roman layout option.
 - the lmodern fonts are now automatically loaded only if installed on the system. The "nolmodern" option is now therefore obsolete.
 - complete code refactoring separating themes in separate styles and colors.
 - renamed \cvline to \cvitem, \cvlanguage to \cvitemwithcomment and \cvcomputer to \cvdoubleitem (the old command name still work and redirect to the new ones, but are deprecated).
 - removed the arbitrary minipage widths of skill proficiency vs comment in \cvitemwithcomments. The skill proficiency is now typeset exactly as given (i.e. one one line if no linebreaks are implicitly given) and the comment uses the remaining horizontal space.
 - changed the optional argument of \cvlistitem and \cvlistdoubleitem to specify the vertical skip after the item (as for \cvitem, cvitemwithcomments, etc). The way to change the list symbol is to redefine \listitemsymbol.
 - added a new style on top of classic and casual: oldstyle.
 - loads the microtype package to improve typography.
