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.

On the technical side there is now a public Mercurial source repository where all examples will be stored. The main motivation for doing this is that it makes it easier to work from different computers. It also makes it easier for contributors to contribute code and track changes.

I have not put all existing examples in the repository yet, but I will add them to the repository soon. I still have to figure out how to best handle external files and data. Note that the tex source files in the repository are the raw tex files used to build the TikZ and PGF examples gallery. This means that they contain some meta data and markup necessary to build the gallery. For those who are interested, you can find the code I use for building the examples in the Google code project. Look for the texgallery and texpub applications.

    I'm trying to find an easy way to draw my gnuplot plots and subplots with tikz, as well as annotate photos. Is there some forum anyone could point me to?

    @Jared. Try for instance the LaTeX community forum or the pgf-users mailing list.
