CTAN Update: pgf / TikZ

Till Tantau submitted an update to the

             pgf / TikZ

package.

Version number: 3.0.0
License type: Dual: LPPL and alternatively GPL/GFDL

Summary description:  A graphics language for TeX

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

 I am happy to announce version 3.0.0 of TikZ/pgf. After several years
 of development work in the background, a new version is finally ready.

 With the big jump in the version number from 2.10 to 3.0.0 a lot of
 new stuff has been added to TikZ (since the last version, over a
 thousand lines have been added to the change log...). However, care
 was taken to make sure that in normal circumstances all old code will
 still produce the exact same results as it used to.

 It is impossible to list all the changes and improvements, so let me
 just point out some hilights:

 - Arrow Tips: You can now configure the appearance of arrow
   tip "to death" and do so on the fly. Arbitrary arrow tips will now
   even bend along curves since TikZ can now do curvilinear
   transformations on a very low level.

CTAN Update: luamplib

Dohyun Kim submitted an update to the

                luamplib

package.

Version number: 2.5.2
License type: gpl

Summary description: Use LuaTeX's built-in METAPOST interpreter

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

 v2.5.2

  - Now btex ... etex input from external *.mp files will also
    be processed by luamplib. However, verbatimtex ... etex will
    be entirely ignored in this case. Introduced at v2.5 but not
    announced for a technical issue.

 - For the new functionality above, luamplib inspects each and
   every .mp input files and make caches if necessary. As this
   will sometimes waste time resources uselessly, new macros
   \mplibmakenocache{...} and \mplibcancelnocache{...} are
   provided, so that users can instruct those input files that
   do not need this routine.

 - Added a hack to support graph.mp (in fact, format.mp)
