Sorry to interrupt the language discussion, but the code for
`patch level 1' of the 1996/12/01 release has just been placed on

If you have the December release then you just need obtain the
following files.


The relevant details from patches.txt are contained below.


Changes to the kernel in LaTeX2e <1996/06/01> patch level 1

%%% internal/2402
%%% Missing % in \g@addto@macro

%%% latex/2404
%%% Reset space factor codes in the output routine.
%%% The default settings are based on the values set at \begin{document}
%%% unless they are set by defining \normalsfcodes in a class file
%%% or package.
%%% This bug was inherited from LaTeX2.09 (in fact from plain TeX).

%%% latex/2414
%%% Prior to the 1996/12/01 release a \noindent immediately after an
%%% \item would `remove' a horizontal space of length \parindent.
%%% This could have surprising effects in cases where \itemindent
%%% was not equal to \parindent.
%%% In the December release this code was rationalised to use
%%% the `\lastbox' mechanism as used after section headings.
%%% A result of this was that \noindent had no effect at all
%%% after \item.
%%% This was probably reasonable in explicit lists but it also
%%% meant \noindent had no effect in contexts such as
%%% \begin{abstract}\noindent...
%%% in the standard classes that use the list environment `internally'.
%%% This patch restores the behaviour of \noindent in abstract, and
%%% more generally always removes the \itemindent spacing from the
%%% current item if used after \item, thus it should work as expected
%%% even if \parindent and \itemindent are not equal.
%%% This area is still under investigation, and this may not be the
%%% `final' version that will be incorporated in the next full release.

Changes to non-kernel files in LaTeX <1996/06/01>

This section details files that have changed in the
`base', `tools', `graphics' and `mfnfss' distributions.
Updates to the `babel' `psnfss' and `amslatex'
distributions will be announced separately, if necessary.

To activate the non-kernel updates you have to retrieve the
.dtx files and unpack them with their corresponding .ins files
or alternatively (for the files in `base') you may obtain the unpacked
files from ctan archives.

base/doc.dtx          Missing % in \GetFileInfo (latex 2404)
tools/tabularx.dtx    Improved documentation and message in case table
                      is too large to fit to the requested width.
graphics/graphics.ins Add generation of dvipdf.def file. graphics/240
