Summary description: An extension to the glossaries package

Announcement text:

* New commands \glsxtrp etc.

  * New command \glsxtrabbrvfootnote used by the footnote
    abbreviation styles (instead of hard-coding \footnote
    into the style).

  * Fixed bug in footnote styles that used \glsfirstlongfont
    instead of \glsfirstlongfootnotefont.

  * Fixed "first" and "firstplural" keys in the postfootnote
    style (was causing repeated footnotes).

  * Fixed "text" key in the long-short-desc and short-long-desc
    abbreviation styles, and fixed misspelling of \glsabbrvfont
    in the "plural" key.

  * Fixed \glsfirst, \Glsfirst and \GLSfirst to ensure they
    honour the nohyperfirst attribute.

  * Fixed bug in \RestoreAcronyms
