CTAN Update: PGF and TikZ version 1.09

Date: October 13, 2006 9:43:35 AM CEST
On Wed, 11 Oct 2006, Till Tantau submitted an update to the PGF/TikZ package. PGF is a macro package for creating graphics. It is platform- and format-independent and works together with the most important TeX backend drivers, including pdftex and dvips. It comes with a user-friedly syntax layer called TikZ. Its usage is similar to pstricks and the standard picture environment. Unlike pstricks, it can produce either PostScript or PDF output, and works with plain (pdf-)TeX, (pdf-)LaTeX, and ConTeXt.

After one year without a new versions of pgf/TikZ, I finally managed to ready a new version. I recommend updating to this version to all reasonably experienced users. After user feedback on this version, I intend to remove any remaining serious compatibility bugs (in theory, there should not be any) and to create a very stable version 1.10 within the next few weeks. Changes in version 1.09 of pgf/TikZ compared to the previous version 1.01: - Added \usepgflibrary and \usetikzlibrary to simplify adding new libraries. - Added native ConTeXt support in the form of module wrappers. - Added patterns. - Added crosses snake. - Added to and edge path operations. - Added to path library. In particular, this gives decent curved paths. - Added tikz automata library. - Added tikz er diagram library. - Added tikz Petri net library. - Added tikz mindmap library. - Added access to nodes in other pictures (!). - Added extended baseline setting. - Added functionality to add new coordinate systems. - Added polar xy coordinate system. - Added diamond shape (!). - Added plot mark phase, repeat and indices. - Added text height and text depth options. - Added label and pin options. - Added automatic node placement (!). - Added pgfsys-dvi.def for pure dvi mode. Supports only black and white drawing (proof on concept, only) - Cleared up license chaos. - Reorganized library documentation. - Removed pgflibraryautomata, use pgflibrarytikzautomata instead. - Fixed tree level option bug. - Fixed missing options for coordinates. - Fixed bug in TikZ parabola code. - Fixed bug in TikZ snake cycle code. - Fixed bug with empty list in pgffor - Fixed bug in code for insertion of dvips header specials. - Fixed bug in shading code (wrong bigpoint correction). - Fixed bug #1472666. - Fixed bug #1473255. - Fixed bug #1526175. - Fixed bug #1542512. - Fixed bug in TikZ transformation code for nested pictures. - Fixed patch #1443606. - Fixed path #1526178.
Thanks for the update. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
