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.

I did not have time during the last weeks for updates, sorry to the authors: of course I added your nice and useful examples.

Does anybody have examples and want to share them? Contributions are very welcome. Just use the contact form or sent me an email, the address is on the same contact page, link visible at the top of the site.

    Do you read all the messages send via the "contact form" ?

    I sent to you two messages (an example and an advice). But no answer, no reaction... This is really disappointing!

    Can you at least tell me why you refuse my proposals?

    Hi Paul!

    Sorry, I missed your message, I did not see it because of many spambot messages via this form. I looked for it and found your Penrose tiling example. Very impressive example with recursion, I like it very much! I'll gladly add it. Thanks for writing this hint as comment to a current post, so I noticed it now.

    Ok. Spam is a scourge which poses many problems.

    Have you also noticed my message about the compilation via lualatex of the CVS version of tikz/pgf?

  • #4 Stefan Kottwitz, November 21, 2012 at 12:10 p.m.

    Yes, I got it, thanks, I updated my blog post about this topic to include your suggestions, with a link to your answer How to create your own TDS archive from sourceforge via CVS.

    Excellent. It remains only to update the build of the CVS version of TikZ/pgf on

    Then you can delete all those comments which are of no use to others.

    The topic "How to create your own TDS archive from sourceforge via CVS" is excellent.

    But since I am using Texlive2011+Win7, I still can not build it successfully.

    Is it possible to add some instruction to build pgf package in Texlive+windows environment? Or write a general Makefile to handle both Linux and Windows release?
