the daemon alerts me to an eagerly awaited upload:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> Name of contribution: ucs
> Author's name: Wolfgang Jeltsch
> Package version: 2.0
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/ucs/
> Summary description: Extended UTF-8 input encoding support for LaTeX
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> The ucs package provides advanced support for using UTF-8 as the input
> encoding of LaTeX files.  It goes much beyond the standard UTF-8
> support of LaTeX.  For example, it supports much more characters,
> provides facilities for efficiently handling this large number of
> characters, and allows glyph production to be controlled by various
> options.  As a result, the ucs package is also suitable for using
> non-ASCII characters when entering mathematical formulas.=20
> Before version 2.0, the ucs package was called =91unicode=92 in certain
> contexts.  Starting with version 2.0, it should always be called =91ucs=

thanks for the upload; i've installed the package as if it were new, and
made an entry for it in the catalogue repository.

The new catalogue entry will have appeared on the web by tomorrow
