The eighth CTAN release has the following improvements:
* Oval radius is now editable
* So called instances can now be saved and loaded again. They act like grouped objects. A number of objects can be saved to an instance file (.lpxi) and be inserted as a grouped single object in your drawings. E.g. a complete two input AND gate can be drawn once, saved to a instance file and be inserted a lot of times to create a logic scheme.
* Added some preferences.
* Inclusion of bitmap (*.bmp) images is not possible anymore for it is not fully supported by LaTeX.
* Improvements made on arc drawing and conversion.
* Framebox text rotation can now be specified within a range of -360..360
* Movement, resizing and drawing of objects now by default snaps to grid, by holding the shift key you can move, resize and draw freely without snapping.
* Webupdate checker implemented. When a newer version is found on the CTAN server it asks if you want to be redirected.
* Major improvements and additions made to the manual. It is not finished yet but a lot better and clearer than the previous releases.
* Language editor added again. If you feel like translating LaTeXPiX into your language, please help me. See the manual for details.
* Bolditalic texts are possible.
