Sašo Ži­vanović sub­mit­ted an up­date to the for­est pack­age. Ver­sion num­ber: 2.1 Li­cense type: lp­pl1.3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Draw­ing (lin­guis­tic) trees An­nounce­ment text:
This re­lease fo­cuses on per­for­mance is­sues. Whereever pos­si­ble, us­ing PGF's math li­brary is avoided, and when pro­cess­ing speed is an is­sue, the sub­stan­tially en­hanced ar­gu­ment pro­ces­sor can now be used as a drop-in re­place­ment for pgf­math. Other im­prove­ments in­clude some new node­walk stuff and con­di­tion­als, rel­a­tive node names in han­dler `.op­tion`, and sev­eral bug­fixes; see the changelog for de­tails. Note to users of For­est-based pack­age Prooftrees. Due to a bug­fix in For­est 2.1, Prooftrees 0.4 will not work prop­erly with For­est 2.1. Either down­load the new ver­sion of Prooftrees (0.41) or load the For­est pack­age (prior to load­ing Prooftrees) us­ing `\usep­a­ck­age[com­pat=2.0-de­layn]{for­est}`.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/graph­ics/pgf/con­trib/for­est More in­for­ma­tion is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/for­est

for­est – Draw­ing (lin­guis­tic) trees

The pack­age pro­vides a PGF/TikZ-based mech­a­nism for draw­ing lin­guis­tic (and other kinds of) trees. Its main fea­tures are:

  • a pack­ing al­go­rithm which can pro­duce very com­pact trees;
  • a user-friendly in­ter­face con­sist­ing of the fa­mil­iar bracket en­cod­ing of trees plus the key-value in­ter­face to op­tion-set­ting;
  • many tree-for­mat­ting op­tions, with con­trol over op­tion val­ues of in­di­vid­ual nodes and mech­a­nisms for their ma­nip­u­la­tion;
  • the pos­si­bil­ity to dec­o­rate the tree us­ing the full power of PGF/TikZ; and
  • an ex­ter­nal­iza­tion mech­a­nism sen­si­tive to code-changes.
