Summary description: GS1 codes and bar codes (currently EAN-8 and EAN-13 only) using expl3
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

GS1 started to handle codes specified by the GS1 specification. It can generate 
the control digits of some GS1 codes and some bar codes corresponding with the 
GS1 codes. It depends on stable expl3 packages and the sub-package rule-D only.

There's an additional sub-package rule-D, that provides L3 functions \rule:nn 
and \rule:nnn similar to LaTeX2e \rule command.

Major changes:
- Options scale and scale_to_font implemented.
- Works with expl3 2012/08/14 v4091.
