Herbert Voß, Denis Girou and Timothy Van Zandt have updated their pstricks package to version 1.27. The new version introduces several new macros. The pstricks package is an extensive collection of PostScript macros that is compatible with most TeX macro formats, including Plain TeX, LaTeX, AMS-TeX, and AMS-LaTeX.

Included are macros for colour, graphics, pie charts, rotation, trees and overlays. It has many special features, including a wide variety of graphics (picture drawing) macros, with a flexible interface and with colour support. There are macros for colouring or shading the cells of tables.

Oh no, visual TeX...I'm afarid. I downloaded and installed it. With the basic options it's not too large: 29.8MB approximately.Actually typing directly into the document and seeing it appear is a bit odd after using LaTeX for so long. I found the editor a bit confusing. It acts sort of like a word processor except that there is evidence that logical markup can be done.I don't like this program too much because for example, a beginner might be tempted to center some text and make it larger, instead of using the actual title commands. It might allow poorly made documents simply because it looks so much like a word processor.Also the LaTeX code which it generates is a bit messy (maybe I'm being a bit stringent here, but if someone else wants to do it by hand afterwards it might be frustrating).
