Summary description: Pack as much text as possible onto each page of a LaTeX document
License type: lppl

Announcement text:

The goal of the savetrees package is to pack as much text as
possible onto each page of a LaTeX document.  Admittedly,
this makes the document far less attractive.  Nevertheless,
savetrees is a simple way to save paper when printing draft
copies of a document.  It can also be useful when trying to
meet a tight page-length requirement for a conference or
journal submission.

Version 2.1 introduces a convenient set of package
meta-options -- "subtle", "moderate", and "extreme" -- which
encapsulate useful subsets of savetrees's space-saving
techniques.  In addition, savetrees now knows how to reduce
space within and between mathematical expressions.  Finally,
to complement the documentation, the package includes a new
demonstration file, st-sample2.pdf, which showcases
savetrees's ability to reduce document white space.
