Announcement text given by the package's contributor: No
I rearranged and rewrote the keys and commands for the pgf-pictures. 
Now all styles and marks can be used in the foreground and in the 
background. I added definitions for partial borders. I extended the 
trim and clip commands. xifthen is now required.

Upgrading to this version can change the look of existing document.

Notably two things can give problems: The value of the
padding key now affects much more objects (marks) in the pgf
pictures. So it could be necessary to reset the padding. And the 
applycolor has changed its behaviour. It will now also affect the 
foreground picture.
