the daemon reports:

> Name of contribution: verbatimbox
> Author's name: Steven B. Segletes
> Package version:  3.0
> Location on CTAN: macros/latex/contrib/verbatimbox/
> Summary description: Routines to put verbatim text in a box, used when
>           verbatim is inaccessible. Also, for adding vertical buffer
>           to an object.
> License type: lppl
> Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
> ----------------------------------------------------------------------
> The verbatimbox package has undergone a major overhaul.
> The package allows verbatim material to be placed into LATEX boxes,
> for later recall. This function is useful in several situations, primarily in places
> where the verbatim environment is otherwise inaccessible (for example, in the
> midst of a tabular environment). It is also useful if a given verbatim text needs
> to be recalled multiple times within a document.
> The introduction of the new myverbbox environment allows the user to
> place verbatim content in a box for which he chooses the name, thus
> allowing more than one verbatimbox to be in play at a time.
> While there is application for its use within the verbatimbox
> application, this package also offers an independent command
> (\addvbuffer) for conveniently providing vertical buffer space above
> and below a LaTeX object.  The new optional argument allows one to
> specify the amount of buffer to add above and below the object.
> Finally, authentic documentation is provided, sorely lacking in prior versions.
> Users may view the package catalogue entry at
>   http://www.ctan.org/pkg/verbatimbox
> or they may browse the package directory at
>   http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/latex/contrib/verbatimbox/

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

i apologise for continuing delays in making announcements.  my health
remains unreliable, and slows me down a lot.
