New Release of hmcpset Homework LaTeX Class

Current versions of PDFTeX resulted in problems with the PDFTeX-detection code in the hmcpset homework LaTeX class, making it unusable.

A new release of the hmcpset class, 0.5, addresses this issue by substituting the use of the ifpdf package for the offending code. That version is now the current version for users of the department's Linux cluster and is available for download from the class's support page, at http://www.math.hmc.edu/computing/support/tex/classes/hmcpset/.

As the older version of the class is unusable with current TeX systems (e.g., TeX Live 2008 or TeX Live 2009), we encourage users to download the newer version as soon as possible.

As usual, please report problems to system@math.hmc.edu.
