Summary description: Customising captions in floating environments.
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

`newfloat' package added. The `newfloat' package offers the command 
\DeclareFloatingEnvironment for defining new floating environments which behave 
like the existing ones `figure' and `table'. This functionality was already 
offered by the `caption' package via \DeclareCaptionType in the past, but is now 
available for users which don't want to use the `caption' package.


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.
