Version number: 2.20.0 2019-03-20
License type: gpl2

Summary description: Use LuaTeX’s built-in MetaPost interpreter

Announcement text:

* huge changes, but mostly internal, so apparently not much difference 
  from previous version.
* '\mplibforcehmode' makes mplibcode typeset in horizontal mode.
  '\mplibnoforcehmode' reverts the setting. The latter is default.
* '\mpliblegacybehavior{disable}' triggers a new mode of processing
  verbatimtex .. etex: along with btex .. etex, they will be processed
  sequentially one by one. Old behavior, being default, can be restored
  by declaring '\mpliblegacybehavior{enable}'.
* Incidentally, verbatimtex .. etex in MP input files is honored
  from this version, save those that contain '\documentclass'
  or '\begin{document}' etc, which is totally ignored.
