| This is the last release of the package HA-prosper. All future
| developments in the line of this package will be collected in a new
| class called TeXciting. The reason that this package will be
| converted into a class is that some ideas for improvements (like A4
| paper support) can only be realized when stepping away from prosper.
| The conversion will take some time and any bugs in HA-prosper will
| be dealt with in the meantime. Changes necessary for presentations
| to step from HA-prosper to TeXciting will be kept to a minimum.
