CTAN Update: hobby

Date: April 13, 2013 4:30:40 PM CEST
Andrew Stacey submitted an update to the hobby package. Summary description: Draw smooth curves in TikZ/PGF using Hobby's algorithm License type: lppl Announcement text:
This update includes the following major additions: 1. The algorithm can now be used as a plot handler. 2. The path generated by the algorithm can be used in more flexible ways, in particular it can be reused and can be used in parts (for example, to draw knot diagrams). Also bug fixes and other minor improvements.
This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/pgf/contrib/hobby . More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/hobby (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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html .
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

hobby – An implementation of Hobby’s algorithm for PGF/TikZ

This package defines a path generation function for PGF/TikZ which implements Hobby’s algorithm for a path built out of Bezier curves which passes through a given set of points. The path thus generated may by used as a TikZ ‘to path’.

The implementation is in 3.
