New on CTAN: penrose
The penrose package is for the creation of Penrose tilings in TikZ using kite-and-dart, rhombuses, or pentagon-based systems, and either by manual placement or automatic generation.
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/penrose The package’s files themselves can be inspected at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/penrose/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

penrose – A TikZ library for producing Penrose tilings
This package provides a TikZ library for drawing Penrose tiles. It currently supports the kite/dart, rhombus, and pentagon tile sets. There are two main methods for their placement: one that automatically generates a tiling, and one that allows for “by hand” placement. Furthermore, the tiles themselves can be deformed and will still (hopefully!) fit together in the correct fashion.
