Summary description: Penguins with TikZ

Announcement text:

Besides several refinements and bug-fixes (like the presentation of the
lightsaber in the firefox web-viewer), there are a lot of new options and
extras for the penguin:

* New Extras for chess-penguins
* Hooves for the Horse
* A friendly bee
* Vampire Teeth
* Halloween extras (like a Jack-O-Lantern)
* Winter extras (like a warm wool hat)
* A Belt, Spear, Wooden Plank, Magnifier, and other rudimentary items

Besides, I have started to explain how tikzpingus works under the hood.

For a complete list, see the Changelog at:

If you have any suggestions, or use tikzpingus for something, I would be very
happy to hear that - please let me know!
