Jean-François Burnol submitted an update to the

etoc

package.

Summary description: easily customizable TOCs

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1.06

1. With previous versions, macros such as \l at section
recovered their standard meanings only in compatibility mode
at the time of typesetting TOCs. With this version, it is
the opposite: macros such as \l at section or \l at subsection
have throughout the document their standard meanings, which
means that they can be customized (even if no package has
added to them customizing hooks) and that the compatibility
mode of etoc will obey this.

2. The .toc file is now read into memory at the time of
\usepackage{etoc} and it is opened for write operation at
the first TOC typesetting command. Prior, both happened at
the \begin{document}.

3. The commands added by the package to the .toc file are
declared to the external world to do nothing. Hence some
other package can also load the .toc file (this must happen
before the first typeset TOC) and execute its contents.
(related to the point 2 above.)

4. A number of superfluous \global's and a few \gdef's,
which were left-overs from the war against bugs in the
developing stages of the code, were removed.

5. The documentation has been updated and improved. An
unclear statement about secnumdepth has been corrected.
