CTAN Update: texapi & yax
texapi: Bugfix in loops with passed arguments. yax: YaX now supports good old <key>=<value> comma-separated lists with \setparameterlist. Also added: - \copyparameter - \deleteparameter - \parameterloop (loops over a parameter's attributes and their values)
These packages are located at http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/texapi/ http://mirror.ctan.org/macros/generic/yax/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=texapi http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=yax if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear).

Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf
yax – Yet Another Key System
YaX is advertised as a key system, but it rather organizes attributes in parameters, which parameters can be executed, so that YaX is halfway between key management and macro definition (and actually hopes to provide a user’s interface).
Values assigned to attributes can be retrieved and tested in various ways, with full expandability ensured as much as possible.
Finally, YaX’s syntax is a quite peculiar (as few braces as possible), but may be customized.
YaX is based on texapi and thus requires e-TeX.
