Summary description: Date printing, formatting, and manipulation in TeX

Announcement text:

TeX and LaTeX provide few facilities for dates by default, though many
packages have filled this gap.  texdate fills it, as well, with a pure
TeX-primitive implementation.

It can print dates, advance them by numbers of days, weeks, or months,
determine the weekday automatically (with an algorithm cribbed from the
dayofweek.tex file written by Martin Minow), and print them in (mostly)
arbitrary format.  It can also print calendars (monthly and yearly)
automatically, and can be easily localized for non-English languages.
