Hi all,

I have just released a second candidate for metapost 1.200.

New in this candidate is an altered syntax for string valued
newinternals, as proposed by Stephan Hennig. Input should now
look like this:

 newinternal string s;% new string internal with empty string value
 newinternal numeric num;% new numeric internal with zero value
 newinternal n;% for compatibility: same as 'newinternal numeric n;'

Also, a buffer reallocation bug was found that could cause crashes.

The packaged files are here:


Testing is more than welcome!

Have fun,
