The wumpus-drawing package
** WARNING ** - this package is sub-alpha. Although many of the drawing objects have been improved since the code was split from Wumpus-Basic, the code is still prototypical. Essentially this package is a technology preview and not yet a re-usable library.
NOTE - many of the demos use font metrics. Font metrics for the "Core 14" PostScript fonts are distributed as *.afm files with GhostScript in the fonts directory. Wumpus expects the GhostScript font metrics to be AFM version 2.0 files (this matches GhostScript 8.63). Alternatively, metrics for the Core 14 fonts are available from Adode (AFM version 4.1), see the links below. To run the demos properly you will need one of these sets of metrics.

Also note that Wumpus uses fallback metrics (derived from the monospaced Courier font) when font loading fails, rather than throwing a terminal error. Applications should ideally check the font loading log to ensure that fonts have loaded correctly (the demos print this log to standard out).
v0.2.0 to v0.3.0:
Moved Turtle and Grids into the Wumpus.Drawing.Extras name-space. Modules here are considered sketches.
Re-implemented arrowheads and connectors.
Re-implemented monadic path construction. This is now essentially "turtle drawing" with a path trace.
Removed chains - a simplified implementation is now provided by Wumpus-Basic.
Re-implemented and expanded Text.
v0.1.0 to v0.2.0:
Added new Shapes.
Move Geometry modules to Wumpus-Basic.
Re-implemented LR-Text. Added CatText.
Initial release - this is a split from Wumpus-Basic making the (very prototypical - read sub-alpha, unstable...) modules in the Drawing hierarchy a separate package.
Simplified Chains - chains are now regular lists (though often infinite). Drawings are made with chains using new zip-like functions.
Re-worked Arrow and Arrow Tip types.
