Thanks for the contribution.  I replaced the old version on ftp.dante.de
as requested.

[LaTeX/Metafont] Feynman diagrams: FeynMF v1.08 released

This announces version 1.08 of FeynMF, a combined LaTeX and Metafont
(or Metapost) package for easy drawing of professional quality Feynman
(and maybe other) diagrams.

Version 1.08 is mainly a bug fix release and offers a driver script as
the only new feature.  The driver script is still experimental and I
will be grateful for portability suggestions (it has been developed with
teTeX under Linux).

This software will show up through the magic of mirroring at the CTAN
host near you.

Enjoy,
-Thorsten

NEWS for Version 1.08

    *  Improved very short gluon and photon propagators by relaxing
    overly aggressive rounding.

    *  New (still experimental) `feynmf' script automating the
    invocation of Metafont (requires perl(1)).

I have installed the two files in directory help/wp-conv (feeling that
the directory name would at least give hints for the troubled
searcher).

I also installed links, as follows:

  RTF,Word,WordPerfect<->TeX_Konvertern_FAQ_[Deutsch] -> texcnvde.txt
  RTF,Word,WordPerfect<->TeX_convertors_FAQ_[English] -> texcnven.txt

(making gratuitous use of the way Unix allows silly file names... ;-)

Thanks for the upload.  I had been thinking (as you know) that we
ought to have the English file on the archive, but hadn't even
realised that there was a German version as well.

Thanks for the update.  I replaced version 1.4 with version 2.0 in the
same directory macros/latex/contrib/supported/g-brief.  Usually, the
directory names in macros/latex don't include the version number.

Thanks.  I've installed the package in
macros/latex/contrib/other/mpfnmark

It will propagate to the rest of the network in due course.

I've done that.

His announcement text says:
========================
A brand-spankin' new version of PSfrag, version 3.02, for LaTeX2e can be
found at CTAN sites in the directory

macros/latex/contrib/supported/psfrag.

PSfrag 3.02 is a bug fix release, and should be installed over any copy
of PSfrag 3.01 that is out there. In addition, I recommend that you
re-typeset any files on which you have already used PSfrag 3.0 or 3.01.

For those of you that have been diligently installing these interim
releases, beating on them with your favorite documents, and sending us
angry bug reports: thanks a lot (and sorry!) This new PSfrag system
_will_ prove worthwhile, but you have uncovered bugs that we never would
have anticipated otherwise.
