Andreas Scherer submitted an update to the



Version:  1.1 2021-03-17
License:  pd

Summary description:   PDF library for C/WEB sources in TeX Live

Announcement text:
 This updated version of the 'knuth-pdf' packages incorporates
 suggestions by Udo Wermuth and by the CTAN team.

 The "legalese" in the 'README' file should make it clear that
 this package is maintained by Andreas Scherer and not by Donald
 Knuth and that the "Public domain" license covers only the files
 contained in 'knuith-pdf', but does not cover the actual source
 codes that are released under various (and varying) licenses as
 stated in the sources.

 Udo Wermuth suggested amendmends to the 'index' file(s) to distinguish
 between the authorship of Donald Knuth and other authors.
 (And he requested minor improvements in the display of 'index.html'.)

 Moreover, Udo Wermuth provided a wrapper script for the 'errorlog' to
 uncover the list of acronyms at the very end of the 'errorlog.tex' file.
 Thanks, Udo!
