Description

from 2015 latex has a new double column float implementation (previously in fixltx2e) which keeps figure* and figure in the same list, distinguished by 2-col figures having a depth of 1sp the redefinition of \@dblfloatplacement loses the 1sp and things go wrong (see the image in the tex.sx report) seems like just adding \def\f@depth{1sp} fixes it.

see example at

MWE


\showoutput
\showboxdepth3

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\usepackage{kantlipsum}
\begin{document}
\kant*[7]

\begin{figure}[!htbp]
\leavevmode\smash{\rule{1pt}{26pt}}\kant*[7]
\end{figure}

\leavevmode\smash{\rule{1pt}{26pt}}\kant*[7]
\end{document}

Evaluation

Unfortunately adding \def\f@depth{1sp} sometimes causes “Too many unprocessed floats” for documents that previously worked with TeX Live 2014, so I’m not sure what the best solution is, but at least your suggestion works for some documents.

Thank you! I've been trying to work out why my new LaTeX book went wonky with TL2015, but hadn't been able to narrow it down to a mwe!

sigh looks like I attached the wrong file, but you can use the tex.sx link.
