Name of contribution: tikz-timing
Author's name: Martin Scharrer
Location on CTAN: /graphics/pgf/contrib/tikz-timing/
Summary description: Update to version 0.5
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
 * Fixed bug which caused load errors if the `calc` package 
   was loaded before the `tikz-timing` package.
 * Added posibility to give diagram wide settings as first 
   optional argument in \tikztiming and tikztimingtable.
 * Timing diagram is now a PGF shape (node) with many 
   anchors including start and end points. This help to draw 
   material relative to timing diagrams. Rows inside a 
   `tikztimingtable' are automatically named.
 * Package now depents on 'amsmath' or 'environ' package.  
   Previous versions always needed the 'environ' package.
 * Syntax change: The \timing macro now awaits an 'at' 
   before the coordinate like nodes do. The old syntax still 
   works but causes a warning.  Future versions might 
   enforce the 'at' or react different if it is not used.
 * Added user defined meta-characters which can store user 
   defined character groups.
 * Added special 'B' character to introduce negative width.  
   Main application is for meta-characters and other groups.
 * Changed `M` character to use path decorations.
 * Some code improvements to speed up compilation and make 
   the source code cleaner.
