A very short list of changes is given below. As usual, there is an
html page with more detailed release notes available on the Wiki, see:


New features since  2006.05.11:

* The use of \sometxt in MetaPost figures (instead of \textext) can
   remove the need for indirect "texexec" runs, resulting in a massive
   speed improvement for heavy documents.
* Table splitting is reimplemented and improved
* Initial support for the new TeXGyre font families
* A new release of the bib module, with better support for
   interaction and per-chapter bibliographies
* Some small extensions to \framed
* The database module now supports ASCII (non-TeX) files with CSV
* \setupformulae accepts a conversion parameter now
* More built in math support (matrices etc.)
* A prerelease of the "koeieletters" font
* A new module for R integration
* Itemizations can be randomized (for multiple-choice courseware)
* Support for typesetting OpenMath (via MathML)

Happy TeXing,

Taco Hoekwater
