A new package has been installed on tug.ctan.org and should make its
way around cyberspace to your space, via your local mirror, real soon now.

Thanks for the material,

- - ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Finomaton allows users comfortably draw and typeset finite state machines 
(automata). The resulting graphs can be exported to plain MetaPost and 
subsequently be included in TeX and LaTeX documents for excellent 
typesetting quality. Contrary to many other packages, the mouse can be 
used to interactively move objects around. States are magnetic to 
facilitate connection, and any TeX command can be embedded in the labels 
of states and lines. Detailed instruction of how to embed the pictures in 
your document and many examples are included in the documentation.
