CTAN update: pgf

Date: December 27, 2020 6:27:42 AM CET
The PGF/TikZ Team submitted an update to the pgf package. Version number: 3.1.8 License type: lppl1.3c gpl2 fdl Summary description: Create PostScript and PDF graphics in TeX Announcement text:
# BREAKING CHANGES If a topath is bent by any of the in=, out=, bend=, etc. options, a Bezier curve is constructed in the background. To infer the positions of the control points the start and end coordinate are converted to absolute coordinates. However, this has the effect that subsequent points on the path think that the endpoint of the topath was absolute which can lead to counter-intuitive path construction, e.g. ```latex \draw (2,0) to[out=0,in=180] +(1,0) -- ++(0,-1) -- +(1,0); ``` If old code relies on this behavior, this drawing will silently break! Please open an issue if you rely on this. # Bug fixes This release introduces a fix for path handling which concerns expansion of tokens on the path in particular with respect to conditional. Previously when the expansion of a conditonal resulted in a frozen \relax the parser would just give up. Now the parser will skip over the frozen \relax and continue to expand tokens. Whether this will result in a meaningful expansion is up to the user. This release also includes other bug fixes. On GitHub you can click the commit hashes and the issue numbers to get to the fix and the ticket, respectively. a4c275704 #952 8a997bbc1 #954 8f37bca84 #962 3cbe5a192 #844 49e5f0a08 #654 17a95e4c5 #966 ad06895a6 #966 79e613ae1 #966

pgf – Create PostScript and PDF graphics in

PGF is a macro package for creating graphics. It is platform- and format-independent and works together with the most important backend drivers, including pdf and dvips. It comes with a user-friendly syntax layer called TikZ.

Its usage is similar to pstricks and the standard picture environment. PGF works with plain (pdf-), (pdf-), and Cont. Unlike pstricks, it can produce either PostScript or PDF output.
