The package provides a set of macros for naturally typesetting electrical and 
(somewhat less naturally, perhaps) electronic networks.

It is designed as a tool that is easy to use, with a lean syntax, native to 
LaTeX, and directly supporting PDF output format.

Announcement text: 
Quite an update. Many bugs fixed, but probably just as many
new ones introduced: feedback welcome!

 * Version 0.2.3
	- fixed compatibility problem with label option from tikz
	- Fixed resizing problem for shape ground
	- Variable capacitor
 	- polarized capacitor
 	- ConTeXt support (read the manual!)
 	- nfet, nigfete, nigfetd, pfet, pigfete, pigfetd
          (contribution of Clemens Helfmeier and Theodor Borsche)
 	- njfet, pjfet (contribution of Danilo Piazzalunga)
 	- pigbt, nigbt
 	- *backward incompatibility* potentiometer is now the
          standard resistor-with-arrow-in-the-middle; the old
          potentiometer is now known as variable resistor (or vR),
          similarly to variable inductor and variable capacitor
 	- triac, thyristor, memristor
 	- new property "name" for bipoles
 	- fixed voltage problem for batteries in american voltage mode
 	- european logic gates
 	- *backward incompatibility* new american standard
          inductor. Old american inductor now called "cute inductor"
 	- *backward incompatibility* transformer now linked with
	  the chosen type of inductor, and version with core, too.
	  Similarly for variable inductor
 	- *backward incompatibility* styles for selecting shape
	  variants now end are in the plural to avoid conflict with paths
 	- new placing option for some tripoles (mostly transistors)
 	- mirror path style
