Hi,

  The new version of pgf (1.09) comes with Context support! If you are 
using the stable version of context, you can download the 1.09 release 
from the pgf sourceforge website. Read this thread, if you want to use 
this version

http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=1590486&forum_id=477363

  This version does not work with the latest beta. However, Till Tantau 
has modified pgf so that it also works with the latest beta. Right 
now, this is only available through CVS 
http://sourceforge.net/cvs/?group_id=142562

  For those who do not know about pgf, it is a graphical system similar 
to metapost. It runs from inside tex (I think using specials). It is 
not as powerful as metapost, but has better support for some tasks 
than metapost. See the user manual 
ftp://tug.ctan.org/pub/tex-archive/graphics/pgf/doc/generic/pgf/version-for-pdftex/en/pgfmanual.pdf
for details.

Aditya
