Announcement text given by the package's contributor:
TpX 1.3 is on CTAN

TpX is a lightweight, easy-to-use graphical editor for Windows platform 
for creation of drawings and inclusion them into LaTeX 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 
LaTeX 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.

TpX can import EMF/WMF pictures created by other Windows applications, 
including many applications producing scientific graphs. It also can 
import simple SVG pictures. In most cases the result is nice, though 
sometimes imported picture needs some manual editing. So TpX can be 
used as a EMF-to-any and SVG-to-any converter.
