> Name of contribution: The Memoir class
> Author's name: Lars Madsen
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/memoir/
> Summary description: Latest updates for the memoir class
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> From the README
> o memoir v3.6h
> -- provided marginfigure and margintable environments modelled after
> tufte latex (work in progress) including special justification
> macro to force content flush against the textblock
> -- copied the contents of the placeins package, though under a
> different name (\FloatBlock)
> -- added \setfloatadjustment to allow users to globally add stuff to
> the start of floats, e.g. make typeset floating tables using \small
> -- added the possibility to change the color of the head/foot rule in
> the pagestyle
> -- reimplemented the page note construction. Note that the new
> implementation does not rely on the same macros as the old
> -- Manual: checked and verified the links in the bibliography and made
> all the CTAN links active in the PDF version of the manual.
> -- \namesubappendices and \anonsubappendices never existed,
> their real names are \namedsubappendices and \unnamedsubappendices,
> fixed in the manual.
> -- fixed bug in \pfbreak
> -- added hook/wrapper such that packages like bidi can control the
> typesetting direction of the headers/footers
> -- added footer and header measuring, inspired by similar feature in
> fancyhdr. Though we do not change, say, the \headheight we leave
> this to the user and simply warn about it.
> -- made sure that \footnote, \sidefootnote, \sidepar and \sidebar use the same baseline stretch setting (note that for now \marginpar is not covered)
> -- fixed a font problem inside \quarkmarks
> -- subsequent pagenotes are now separated in the same manner af footnotes
> o mem12.clo
> -- changed \headheight to 14.5pt, to match the pattern used by
> the other clo files.
> o memhfixc.sty
> -- now take care of using \printpagenoteshyperref to print back
> references for page notes using hyperlinks.
> Open Issues:
> * memoirs caption formatting should also cover the caption used within
> the longtable package
> * \checkifinteger has many restrictions
> * the \subbottom label handling is flawed in some cases when hyperref is loaded
> These will be dealt with in due time.
