Scott Pakin submitted an update to the

                 The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List


Version number: 12.3
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Symbols accessible from LaTeX

Announcement text:

The Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List is an organized list of over 14200 
symbols commonly available to LaTeX users.  Some of these symbols
are guaranteed to be available in every TeX distribution.  Others require 
font files that come with some, but not all, TeX distributions.
The rest require font files that must be downloaded explicitly from CTAN 
(http://www.ctan.org/) and installed.  The Comprehensive LaTeX
Symbol List currently showcases symbols from 205 separate typefaces.

The latest release of the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List adds a few 
hundred new symbols.  More importantly, it once again builds with the
latest versions of all of the packages represented.  (As packages are 
updated, they frequently introduce new incompatibilities with other
packages to which the Comprehensive LaTeX Symbol List has to adapt.)
