New CTAN Package: tikzpfeile

On Wed, 28 Mar 2012 Michael Fütterer and Jonathan Zachhuber submitted the tikzpfeile package. Summary description: A LaTeX package for drawing arrows using PGF/TikZ License type: lppl Announcement text:
In mathematical texts that contain commutative diagrams created with PGF/TikZ, it might be disturbing that regular arrows (such as \rightarrow) and the PGF/TikZ arrows in the diagrams have different heads. This package defines commands that draw arrows using PGF/TikZ. Using these instead of the regular arrows makes your document look more consistent. Moreover, using PGF/TikZ, a lot more different arrow types can be drawn.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/tikzpfeile . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/tikzpfeile (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 .

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

tikzpfeile – Draw arrows using PGF/TikZ

In a document with a lot of diagrams created with PGF/TikZ, there is a possibility of the reader being distracted by different sorts of arrowheads in the diagrams and in the text (as, e.g., in \rightarrow). The package defines macros to create all arrows using PGF/TikZ, so as to avoid the problem.
