```On Fri, 16 Sep 2011 Maïeul Rouquette submitted an update to the

ledmac and ledpar

packages.

Summary description: Typeset scholarly editions in parallel texts.

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------
In some languages, hanging indents of verses must start with a symbol. For
example, in the french typographie, the symbol is [.

This new version of ledmac and ledpar provides a method to insert it
automatically: The user has to redefine the macro \hangingsymbol.

For example, in the case of the french typography, put this in your file :
\renewcommand{\hangingsymbol}{[\,}.

Note that this new function was tested, but some bugs may still exist:
