Announcement text:
 This repackaging includes the files necessary to handle REVTeX 4.1
 documents after receiving feedback from Karl Berry, David Carlisle,
 and other users. It also includes several updated bst files that
 fixes a serious bug in the initial upload.

 This update (version 4.2c) includes updated bst files to address
 a serious bug. It also includes the additional files necessary to
 handle REVTeX 4.1 documents as a convenience to users and TeX
 distribution maintainers.

 REVTeX 4.2 is the latest update to REVTeX.  Changes include:

  * Added support for additional APS journals,  Physical Review X,
     Physical Review Accelerators and Beams, Physical Review Applied,
     Physical Review Fluids, Physical Review Materials, and Physical
     Review Physics Education Research.
     There are new options prx,  prab, prapplied, prfluids, and
     prmaterials, and prper.

  * Added a unified physrev option for Physical Review journal style
    (the Phys. Rev. journals have no or few variations).

  * The prb option now conforms with Physical Review B's updated style
    that uses the same non-superscripted citations as other APS journals.

  * Added support for additional AIP journals, AIP Advances, Applied
    Physics Letters Materials, and Structural Dynamics as well as AIP
    Conference Proceedings. There are new options adv, apm, sd, and cp.

  * Added support for the  Society of Rheology (sor) and its journal,
    Journal of Rheology (jor).

  * The reprint style for AIP's journal JMP was changed to one-column

  * For all APS journal options, complete article titles are now
    displayed in bibliography entries citing journal articles when
    using BibTeX by default.

  * In the Phys. Rev. BibTeX style file, article titles in the
    bibliography are set in roman font.

  * The behavior of the noeprints option has been improved.

  * Support has been added for citing data sets in the BibTeX styles.

  * Support for citing journals that use a DOI instead of pages or article
    identifiers has been improved (for APS Phys. Rev. BibTeX style).

  * The indentation of tables of contents have been improved.

  * The onecolumn option no longer defaults to creating a separate title page.

  * The showpacs option is completely ignored now.

  * A bug when using booktabs.sty has been fixed.

   * The formatting of references for some commonly cited journals has been
    improved in the Phys. Rev. BibTeX style.

  * URLs generated for DOIs now use https://doi.org/ as the base in the
    BibTeX styles.

  * URLs generated for arXiv.org e-print identifiers now use
    https://arXiv.org/abs/ as the base in the BibTeX styles.
