> The usthesis class/style files are provided to typeset reports, theses
> and dissertations that conform to the requirements of the Engineering
> Faculty of the University of Stellenbosch. 
> The class file usthesis.cls is based on the standard LaTeX book class,
> while usthesis.sty is a style file to be loaded on top of the very
> powerful memoir class. Both options give identical output, but the
> benefit of the using memoir is that it has many additional command and
> environments for formatting and processing of a document.

> matter such as the title page, abstract, etc. and a decent page layout
> on A4 paper. It also works together with the babel package to provide
> language options to typeset documents in Afrikaans or in English. 
> Additional packages are provided for bibliographic matter, note title
> pages, lists of symbols, as well as various graphic files for logos. 
> CHANGES FROM Stellenbosch-09:
>    USthesis: v4.3

thanks for the upload; i've installed the new version, and updated the
catalogue repository.

note that it has taken more than a day to install this package, for
various technical reasons.

The catalogue entry will change (somewhat) by tomorrow morning.
