- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
This is version 0.6 beta of mfpic, a package for creating pictures in (La)TeX files via Metafont or MetaPost. The major changes:
1. Now *all* macros that draw a figure and that take a list of points or numbers as their last parameter can take that list from an external file.
2. The options mplabels and truebbox are now independent of one another.
3. With option mplabels, the specification of the location of a \tlabel can be any *list* of MetaPost point expressions, enclosed in braces.
4. New options draft, final and nowrite.
5. The main documentation now includes an index of commands and options.
6. Several bugs from version 0.5 corrected. (Our bugs are all new!)
