The options mplabels and truebbox are now independent of one another. 3. With option mplabels, the specification of the location of a \tlabel can be any *list* of MetaPost point expressions, enclosed in braces. 4. New options draft, final and nowrite. 5. The main documentation now includes an index of commands and options. 6. Several bugs from version 0.5 corrected.

mfpic – Draw /post pictures from commands

Mfpic is a scheme for producing pictures from commands. Commands \mfpic and \endmfpic (in , the mfpic environment) enclose a group in which drawing commands may be placed.

The commands generate a Meta-language file, which may be processed by (or even ). The resulting image file will be read back in to the document to place the picture at the point where the original commands appeared. Note that the ability to use here means that the package works equally well in and pdf.
