Hi all,

From the commit:

e0bc2b37f :: lisp/ox-latex.el: Allow arbitrary float environments

The `t' option for `:float' in tables and images is no longer valid.
That is, something like

#+ATTR_LaTeX: :float t
[[file:foo.jpg]]

would create in LaTeX export:

\begin{t}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=.9\linewidth]{foo.jpg}
\end{t}

I am attaching a patch to update those changes to the Manual.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
