Summary description: Extended plain TeX macros

Announcement text:

Eplain version 3.11 is available from CTAN via
https://ctan.org/pkg/eplain and directly from https://tug.org/eplain.
It's also included in TeX distributions.

This minor release supports the YYYY-MM-DD date syntax in
\ProvidesPackage, as well as the historical YYYY/MM/DD.

General: the Eplain macro package extends and expands on the definitions
in plain TeX. It's intended to provide useful definitions regardless of
how a document might be formatted, such as cross-referencing by labels.

Eplain was originally developed for the book TeX for the Impatient,
published by Addison-Wesley in 1990. That book is now freely available,
from https://ctan.org/pkg/impatient, along with several translations.
It's also in TeX distributions.

Please send bug reports to tex-eplain at tug.org
(mailing list web interface: https://lists.tug.org/tex-eplain).

Happy expanded TeXing,
