### 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
`http://www.math.hmc.edu/computing/support/tex/classes/hmcthesis/`

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.
