Version number: 2.6

Summary description: Create illustrations for network protocol

Announcement text:

The bytefield package helps the user create illustrations for network
protocol specifications and anything else that utilizes fields of data.
 These illustrations show how the bits and bytes are laid out in a
packet, register, or memory.

Version 2.6 makes a number of improvements related to the curly braces
that group related words.  First, the horizontal spacing surrounding
those braces is now more even.  Second, the leftwordgroup and
rightwordgroup environments accept optional kev/value parameters.
Third, new curlystyle, leftcurlystyle, and rightcurlystyle options have
been introduced to enable coloring or adding other effects to the curly
braces.  Thanks to Victor Toni for his suggestions and help testing.
