Summary description:  Write your articles or books in a colorful way

Announcement text:
 The whole series has been rewritten with `expl3`, taking advantage
 of the newest version of the ProjLib Toolkit.

 Please note that the documentation is not yet up-to-date.
 The syntax of some commands has been changed since the last version,
 especially the declaration of theorem-like environments by `\CreateTheorem`.
 For the moment, you can refer to the documentation of the package

 Major differences comparing to the old version:
 - The key-value interface is more complete and stable
 - Theorems are more configurable (naming, numbering, etc.), and
   the clever referencing is much better and faster
 - Better support for custom fonts

 The code is (for now) mainly copied from that of "minimalist",
 and there remains a lot of work to be done.

 The current style is named "fancy". When a (planned) cleaner
 design is available, this shall no longer be the default style.
