Version number:  4.0
License type: lppl

Summary description: Create glossaries and lists of acronyms

Announcement text:

 Major update.

 glossaries.sty has changed the way information is written to
 external glossary files. This means that descriptions can span
 multiple paragraphs without exceeding makeindex's buffer. It
 also reduces the amount of escaping of xindy/makeindex special
 characters and obviates the need for sanitizing of the name,
 description and symbol keys. The new version should work with
 documents created with older versions, but you may get
 deprecated warnings.

 New package glossaries-prefix.sty added to the bundle.

 See CHANGES file for full list of updates.
