Summary description: Drawing (linguistic) trees
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 

`forest' is a PGF/TikZ-based package for drawing linguistic (and other
  kinds of) trees.  Its main features are:
- a packing algorithm which can produce very compact trees;
- a user-friendly interface consisting of the familiar bracket
  encoding of trees plus the key--value interface to option-setting;
- many tree-formatting options, with control over option values of
  individual nodes and mechanisms for their manipulation;
- the possibility to decorate the tree using the full power of PGF/TikZ;
- an externalization mechanism sensitive to code-changes.
