CTAN update: pgf

Date: September 29, 2020 9:19:36 PM CEST
The PGF/TikZ Team submitted an update to the pgf package. Version number: 3.1.6 License type: lppl1.3c gpl2 fdl Summary description: Create PostScript and PDF graphics in TeX Announcement text:
# Acknowledgements This release stands in the name of the two contributors **Alexander Grahn** and **Yukai Chou** without whom this release would not have been nearly as great. Thank you very much! # BREAKING CHANGES - In the last version, in an attempt to fix updating `local bounding box` in a clipping scope the `\pgf at path@size at hook` in `\pgf at protocolsizes` was set to be executed unconditionally. Unfortunately, this broke all other uses of `local bounding box` and has been reverted. If you need to use `local bounding box` in a clipping scope, use the `overlay` option. - The recent Ghostscript version 9.53 has changed the primitives for transparency, blend mode, and transparency groups. These are now supported by PGF and should in principle go unnoticed by the user. (Thanks Alexander Grahn!) - `\pgfintersectionoflines` will now always return the intersection in the untransformed coordinate system. This however requires an additional `\pgftransforminvert` which comes with a loss of precision and can potentially lead to `Dimension too large` errors in edge cases. - PGF now supports the new hook management that will be introduced in LaTeX 2020/10/01. While this should not lead to any noticeable changes, please look out for breakages with overlays and the `current page` nodes. Please report problems on the PGF or LaTeX issue trackers. # New features You can read about these new features in the manual: - PS-3 functional shading, opacity masks (fadings) and image masks for dvips. (Thanks Alexander Grahn!) - The `dvisvgm4ht` driver developed by Michal Hoftich has been merged into PGF/TikZ. - The `pgfparser` module has been slightly refactored such that it can be used without loading all of PGF. - The order in which the inner styles are applied in a `\matrix` is now configurable. #867 - The file `pgfmanual-en-macros.tex` is developed specifically for typesetting the PGF manual, however, many other package developers have found it useful and made good use of it. To this end, we now install `pgfmanual-en-macros.tex` into a directory that is searched by kpathsea such that developers no longer have to copy the file into their own distribution. - The CI system was switched from Travis CI to GitHub Actions for better integration with GitHub and direct deployment of build artefacts to the status page. # Bug fixes Lots of bug fixes. On GitHub you can click the commit hashes and the issue numbers to get to the fix and the ticket, respectively. 44bb29fd #900 #923 2ae12cb4 #924 f6039046 #918 908db001 #889 71becc18 #909 83069dce #508 #915 c5a6dbbb #671 0f52b63c #654 17e588d5 #912 197450c0 #755 eaf9c096 #888 d96c3f2f #843 6a0e08db #640 #839 bd8c9c45 #876 4773c311 #748 2145bcfb #872 c44960e7 #872 1ca59c70 #871 65bcaaff #867 68bebd7a #823 1c380999 #808 494bd677 #861 1e520dc7 #863 1efebdf7 #856 e1eac8af #859 ca1f30e1 #795 6b79a6dc #855 a7cccca0 #848 7098976d #855 8095bc57 #846 08041e44 #855 730a3437 #853 ff3fe4c4 #852 6e8397b5 #851 6c88ed94 #851 e6e91c40 #848 29de799f #845 2a6eaefb #840 357bc059 #837 15c943b7 #831 314a00ad #829 03aa54d2 #816 4e1529ba #822 4ccfe0d4 #813 1f21e3ba #819 #698

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.
