Packages directory superseded
The directory CTAN:/macros/latex/packages has been superseded
With the 1998/12/01 release of LaTeX, the packages subdirectory of the
LaTeX distribution has been withdrawn.
Subdirectories of the old packages directory are now available as
- amslatex/ now available from macros/latex/required/amslatex/
- babel/ now available from macros/latex/required/babel/
- expl3/ now available from macros/latex/exptl/project/expl3/
- graphics/ now available from macros/latex/required/graphics/
- mfnfss/ now available from macros/latex/contrib/supported/mfnfss/
- psnfss/ now available from macros/latex/required/psnfss/
- tools/ now available from macros/latex/required/tools/
Some rationale for these changes is given in the latest issue of LaTeX
news (source in the distribution, but also available from
the doc directory).
