Summary description:  The LaTeX standard graphics bundle

Announcement text:

 Following the death of Sebastian Rahtz, and the retirement of
 Robin Fairbairns, the LaTeX3 project have been asked to take over
 maintenance of the rotating package.

 This update adds the rotating package to the LaTeX graphics bundle.

 In addition the pagesize handling is now normalised across drivers.
 Previously the pdftex and luatex options set the page size (by
 specifying \(pdf)page(height|width)). Now the dvips option uses
 a pagesize \special to have a similar effect.
 The color and graphics packages have new (no)setpagesize options
 that can enable or disable this behaviour.

The package's Catalogue entry can be viewed at

The package's files themselves can be inspected at


   Thanks for the upload.
