Since today there's a new feature in the TikZ example gallery: all TikZ examples are connected to an online compiler, done in a cooperation between TeXample.net and writeLaTeX.com.
Happy New Year, and the best wishes for all!
The fireworks animation in this post was created using TikZ by Harish Kumar, based on code by Chris Hughes and bloodworks.
Today I added 10 more examples to the TikZ example gallery. All examples were provided by fellow TikZ users: 9 sent to me via email and one taken from TeX.SE. Many thanks to the authors: Benjamin Abel, Dominik Haumann, Matthias Hotz, Eric Jensen, Robert Krause, Mathias Magdowski, Hakon Malmedal, Kannappan Sampath, and Andrew Stacey.
Today I created a build from the CVS version of pgf/TikZ and added it to the pgf builds section. Also the current manual has been typeset and is available there as well. I will continue updating in the future.
On the TeX Stack Exchange meta site, the idea of a cooperation with TeXample.net was brought up.
I’m pleased to announce that Stefan Kottwitz has taken over as the main maintainer of TeXample.net.
Today, the user N3buchadnezzar asked on TeX.SX, how he could draw images of triangular numbers.
More than three years ago I created the PGF and TikZ examples gallery. Thanks to fantastic contributions from TikZ users from all over the world, the gallery now has more than thousand visits each day. The traffic to TeXample.net is increasing every month and I receive more and more high quality contributions...
Just a quick note to inform you that the TikZ and PGF manual in the latest PGF build has been built with hyper references from codeexamples to key declarations enabled.
Some of you may have noticed a steady stream of new examples in the TikZ and PGF examples gallery recently. For various reasons I have not prioritized adding new examples to the gallery for quite a few months now. I want to apologize to all contributors for the lack of response. My motivation is now back and I'm slowly working my way through my inbox and my todo-list.
I recently purchased a Samsung NC10 netbook. Inspired by Stefan Kottwitz blog posts about the Asus Eee PC S101, I want to share with you some of my experiences installing and running TeX on such a small computer.
A few days ago I received a thick envelope from the TeX Users Group. Inside I found a copy of the 2009 TeX Calendar. For every month the calendar shows different examples of what you can do using TeX. You will also find important dates like Donald E. Knuth's birthday and dates for various TeX-related events.
A few days ago Mohammad Bajammal sent me an improved version of the bookmarklet code generated by my BibConverter tool. The new version of the bookmarklet automatically selects all text on the current page an submits it to BibConverter. This means that you now can convert bibliographic entries from IEEEXplore, Engineering Village 2 and ISI Web of Science to BibTeX records with just one click!
