Announcement text given by the contribution's author:

I'm happy to announce a new *major* release of FiXme, a package for
inserting fixme notes in your documents, version 2.0. Many new
features in this release, including a new layout option (inline),
notes counters, a usage summary at the end of processing, more
translations, and most important, three additional macros for
including non-critical notes (meta comments about the document
actualy) of different importance levels.

FiXme provides you with a way of inserting fixme notes in your
documents. Such notes can appear inline, as marginal notes,
footnotes, index entries, in the log file and as warnings on stdout.
It is also possible to summarize them in a list. When you switch
from draft to final mode, any remaining fixme note will be logged,
but removed from the document's body. Additionally, critical notes
will abort compilation with an informative message. FiXme also comes
with support for AUC-TeX.
