[Tex/LaTex] Packages for writing Letter


I am looking for packages to write letters. The packages should be able to understand the German DIN1338{a,b} letter format.

What are common packages which are still maintained?

I meant DIN 5008 Din 5008, Changes to DIN 676

[edit] See also my other post and my issues with Dinbrief

However dinbrief is quite old, and I am unable to do line numbering or
AFAIR tables. That is the reason why I ask for alternatives.

Best Answer

I usally use the dinbrief document class. I don't know if it is still maintained, but the last update is from 2000. It does, however, what I need. I haven't used scrlttr2 yet so I cannot compare them.
