package to CTAN.

Summary description: Organize document columns into PDF "article threads"
License type: lppl

Announcement text:

The threadcol package combines a document's columns into a
PDF "article thread".  PDF readers that support this
mechanism (probably just Adobe Acrobat/Reader) can be
instructed to scroll automatically from column to column,
which facilitates on-screen reading of two-column documents.

Even for single-column documents, threadcol supports the
creation of multiple article threads, which help organize
discontiguous but logically related regions of text into a
form that the user can scroll through as if its contents
were contiguous.
