CTAN package update: epix
ePiX, a free (libre and gratis) collection of batch programs, creates mathematically accurate figures, plots, and animations containing LaTeX typography. The output -- LaTeX picture-like environments and vector image files -- is expressly designed for use with LaTeX. Version 1.2 has been re-written from scratch, mostly preserving the user syntax of Version 1.0, but providing many new capabilities.
This package is located at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/epix . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/epix (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

ePiX – Utility for mathematically accurate, camera quality plots and line figures
ePiX is a collection of batch-oriented utilities for Unix-like systems. It creates mathematically accurate line figures, plots, and movies using easy-to-learn syntax. LaTeX and dvips comprise the typographical rendering engine, while ImageMagick is used to create bitmapped images and animations. The user interface resembles that of LaTeX itself: you prepare a short scene description in a text editor, then “compile” the input file into a picture. Default output formats are eepic (a plain text enhancement to the LaTeX picture environment), eps, pdf, png, and mng.
