CTAN Update: forest

Date: March 5, 2016 7:59:43 AM CET
Sašo Živanović submitted an update to the forest package. Version: 2.0.2 2016-03-04 License: lppl1.3 Summary description: Drawing (linguistic) trees Announcement text:
This is primarily a bugfix release, with some minor features added, but it also contains a backwards incompatible change in the interface decribed below. Don't worry, however: the modified feature has only been introduced a month ago, in v2.0.0, so you probably haven't used it yet. The semantics of the parenthesized optional argument to `forest` environment has changed. The argument was introduced in v2.0.0: if present, it redefined `stages` style for the current environment/macro. This argument is now generalized to allow further (pre-`stages`) customization in future versions of the package. To temporarily redefine stages, write (stages={...}). Note: The user documentation is in forest-doc.pdf, not in forest.pdf, which describes the implementation.

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

forest – Drawing (linguistic) trees

The package provides a PGF/TikZ-based mechanism for drawing linguistic (and other kinds of) trees. Its main features are:

  • a packing algorithm which can produce very compact trees;
  • a user-friendly interface consisting of the familiar bracket encoding of trees plus the key-value interface to option-setting;
  • many tree-formatting options, with control over option values of individual nodes and mechanisms for their manipulation;
  • the possibility to decorate the tree using the full power of PGF/TikZ; and
  • an externalization mechanism sensitive to code-changes.
