New on CTAN: genealogytree

Thomas F. Sturm submitted the

                genealogytree

package.

Version number: 0.10
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: Pedigree and genealogical tree diagrams

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

First alpha version of a work in progress:
Pedigree and genealogical tree diagrams are proven tools to visualize
genetic and relational connections between individuals. The naming for
mathematical tree structures with parent nodes and child nodes is
traded from historical family diagrams. However, even the smallest
family entity consisting of two parents and several children is no
mathematical tree but a more general graph. The genealogytree packages
provides a set of tools to typeset such genealogical trees or, more
precisely, to typeset a set of special graphs for the description of
family-like structures. The package uses an autolayout algorithm which
can be customized to e.g. prioritize certain paths.
