the daemon alerts me to yet more great new stuff:

> The following information was provided by the package's contributor.
> Name of contribution: The fitr Package
> Author's name: D. P. Story
> Package version: 1.2
> Location on CTAN: tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/fitr/
> Summary description: Set a rectangular destination and jumps to it
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> This package is an implementation of the FitR view-type destination as
> described in the PDF Reference. The package defines one new command
> \jdRect. The command (optionally) sets a jump to and/or sets a
> destination of a FitR (Rectangle). (Can you see where \jdRect comes
> from?).
> The package requires eforms (part of the AeB) and collectbox (by
> Martin Scharrer). Drivers supported are dvips and dvipsone (using
> Adobe Distiller as the PDF creator); pdftex (which includes luatex);
> and dvipdfm, dvipdfmx, and xetex.
> The package was developed in response to a user of the AeB Bundle who
> was interested in developing documents for students with low vision;
> the idea is to magnify regions of the document so the student can read
> more comfortably. Optional special effects are included (JavaScript
> functions) to help focus one the rectangle as it is magnified, and as
> the previous view is restored. 

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

The catalogue entry will have appeared on the web by tomorrow
morning (Cambridge time).
