RFE: version of pgf in teTeX is very old
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:19:08 EDT
Description of problem:
Version 0.65 of pgf is packaged with teTeX; the current version of pgf (1.10) is
two years newer and has far more features. It would be nice if the packages
bundled with teTeX were more up-to-date.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
So, I imagine this will be fixed in Fedora 9 when we switch to TeXLive?
Yup, there is pgf-0.96 in the TeXLive 2007. Do you think 1.10 comes with
substantial fixes that is worth update from 0.96 to 1.10?
There are a lot of differences between 0.96 and 1.10---enough that source people
who use newer version of pgf doesn't work at all with 0.96.
At this point, I'd go for the current version, 1.18, though. I'm a bit surprised
that TeXLive also uses such an old version of pgf. Maybe it needs to be packaged
Ahem. That should read:
"There are a lot of differences between 0.96 and 1.10---enough that source FROM
people who use newer version of pgf doesn't work at all with 0.96."
It looks like a reasonable argument to have it packaged separately then. If you
plan to package it, you can use, say tex-preview subpackage of emacs-auctex as a
template. Also feel free to Cc me to the review request or ask.
Thanks for the suggestion, but I can't invest the time in packaging it
myself---I already have too much on my plate from development work on other
