TpX 1.1 is on CTAN

TpX is a simple, easy-to-use graphical editor for Windows platform for
creation of drawings and inclusion them into TeX files in publication-ready
form. It can also be used as a stand-alone editor for vector graphics.

The output is a file (with extension .TpX) containing the drawing as TeX
code or as an \includegraphics link to an external file created by the
program. User can choose between several output formats. TpX saves its
own data in TeX file comments so that the drawing could be loaded into
TpX and edited again. This internal TpX format is based on XML and could
be understood and edited easily.
