Announcement text: 
TpX 1.5 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.
