Update to Thesis Class

While investigating some completely different issues with a thesis, I discovered that the package-loading order was causing tables using the booktabs commands (\toprule, \midrule, \bottomrule, and \cmidrule) to not draw horizontal rules. I've fixed that problem and done a new release (3.1).

The latest version is available on the math cluster in /shared/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/hmcthesis and will be used if you recompile your thesis unless you have a masking copy in your local directory or in your own TEXMF tree.

You can also download the current version of the class from if you're working on your thesis with your own TeX system.

For current thesis students: We will be printing theses from the versions of your code that I archive, which will be building against the latest version of the class, so don't worry about submitting a new PDF.
