Summary description:  LaTeX support file to use the wasy fonts

Announcement text:
 This updates the wasysym package to support version 2.4 of the WASY fonts.
 Two new characters are provided: longs and roundz.
 While the longs was used in many languages for a non final s,
 the roundz was reintroduced to german writers with the "Vereinfachte Ausgangschrift".

 This update supersedes the unreleased version 2.3 which added the new characters
 wasyparagraph, wasyeuro, and wasycmd, with the alternative names Paragraph, euro and applecmd.
 It also added a slanted version of the font.
