New on CTAN: makeshape
This package simplifies writing PGF shapes. Declaring custom shapes with correct anchor borders can be difficult. Complex shapes often need complicated calculations to find the touching point of a connecting line. This package only requires that a developer write a PGF path describing the anchor border. It also provides macros that help with the management of shape parameters, and the definition of anchor points.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/makeshape . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/makeshape (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
