The directory CTAN:/macros/latex/packages has been superseded

With the 1998/12/01 release of LaTeX, the packages subdirectory of the LaTeX distribution has been withdrawn.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 follows:

now available from macros/latex/required/amslatex/
now available from macros/latex/required/babel/
now available from macros/latex/exptl/project/expl3/
now available from macros/latex/required/graphics/
now available from macros/latex/contrib/supported/mfnfss/
now available from macros/latex/required/psnfss/
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).

For the CTAN team

These binaries (installable software) and packages are in development.
They may not be fully stable and should be used with caution. We make no claims about them.
