Summary description: Typeset Thai texts with standard LaTeX classes
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

Fonts previously provided in thailatex are now split into a separate package 
"fonts-tlwg" (upstream project name: thaifonts-scalable).

If your old Thai LaTeX documents do not use 'thswitch' package, font families 
will not be switched with \sffamily or \ttfamily commands. Only the default one 
will be used throughout the document.

To allow font switching, it is now recommended to \usepackage{fonts-tlwg}. It is 
currently equivalent to \usepackage{thswitch}, but the latter is deprecated 
soon, to allow alternative Thai font packages to come. 

This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload.
