Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
This is version 0.9 of mfpic. 

MFpic defines a command group \mfpic...\endmfpic (in LaTeX an environment, 
mfpic) and drawing commands to be used inside this group. When TeX (or 
LaTeX) is run on a file containing those commands, a Metafont (or MetaPost) 
source file is created. When that file is orrectly processed by Metafont 
(or MetaPost), and LaTeX or TeX is run again, the result is a figure in 
the TeX document at the location of each environment.

The main new features are more flexible arrow creation macros and a few 
new path rendering commands: \zigzag, \sinewave and \coil. There has also 
been an internal reorganization to make the code a little more efficient.
