On Thu, 7 Apr 2005 Jens-Uwe Morawski submitted an update for


to CTAN.

      The MetaPost package latexMP implements a user-friendly
      interface to access LaTeX-based typesetting capabilities in
      MetaPost.  The text to be typeset is given as string. This
      allows even dynamic text elements, for example counters, to be
      used in labels. Compared to other implementations it is much
      more flexible, since it can be used as direct replacement for
      btex..etex, and much faster, compared for example to the
      solution provided by tex.mp
