The current release has version 2006.08.08

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:
* The first release of the cow font
* Support for strikethrough text using metapost
* Macros can register temporary files that are automatically cleaned up
* A few small math extensions:
   * matrix option style=\textstyle|\displaystyle so that each entry
     is in that style
   * matrix option location=low|lohi|high for the baseline placement
     of the matrix
   * macro \intertext added
* Sorting of alphabetic commalists (\sortalphacommacommand) is
   now possible
* Included metapost figures start out using black instead of the text
   color now, and \MPcolor{currentcolor} can be used for selecting the
   current text color outside figure
* Page ranges in registers can optionally be compressed using
   \setupregister[compress=yes]
* The bib module automatically runs bibtex now
* SciTE on Windows now uses ComSpec instead of calling cmd.exe directly

Bugfixes:
* A bugfix in defined (named) buffer handling
* Some french messages fixed
* Some fixes for character alignment errors in natural tables
* In grid mode, \displaywidowpenalty and \brokenpenalty are now set
   to zero
* Figure numbers in captions fixed (separator, stopper, suffix)
* LucidaNewMath-Demi (bold) font fixed

Happy TeXing,

Taco Hoekwater
