The MetaPost team is happy to announce a new release of MetaPost:

MetaPost 0.901

The sources, as well as binary packages for both fptex and miktex
installations can be downloaded immediately from


* The source package should compile normally on all systems that are
   capable of compiling a modern web2c-based TeX distribution.

* The web2c-win32 package is intended for fptex or a similar
   web2c-based installation, and has been tested only with TeXLive 2003.

* The miktex package contains macros and binaries for miktex 2.4,
   kindly provided by Christian Schenk himself.

Of course, we welcome any comments (either good or bad) that you may
have. Simply replying to this message is fine, but see the bottom of
this message for a more formal way to report bugs and feature requests.

Changes in version 0.901:
*  A corrected bugfix for the degerate path bug (the old fix
    made metapost fail the trap test)
*  Included mpost.mp for mem generation
*  Updated trap test
*  The mpost executable is now version 0.901
