Summary description:  Flexible LaTeX tabulars

Announcement text:
 Tabu Release 2.9

 The contributed tabu package relied on patching internal interfaces
 of core latex packages and stopped working in recent LaTeX releases.

 The original author, Florent Chervet appears to be out of contact,
 and the package had not been updated since 2011.

 A "tabu-fixed" team has been set up at GitHub to make any immediate
 fixes required to make the package usable.
 Initially this consists of members of the LaTeX3 project.

 Please see


 for details of issues fixed in this release, and an issue tracker
 for reporting any other issues.
