Greetings earthlings,

Please find at GNU ELPA version 1.0.0 of xpm.el (et al):

As this is the initial release, there is no substantial NEWS.
Instead, i include here for the web-disinclined the full xpm.el
Commentary (note important :-D links at bottom):

 This package makes editing XPM images easy (and maybe fun).
 Editing is done directly on the (textual) image format,
 for maximal cohesion w/ the Emacs Way.

 Coordinates have the form (X . Y), with X from 0 to (width-1),
 and Y from 0 to (height-1), inclusive, in the 4th quadrant;
 i.e., X grows left to right, Y top to bottom, origin top-left.

   (0,0)        … (width-1,0)
     ⋮                    ⋮
   (0,height-1) … (width-1,height-1)

 In xpm.el (et al), "px" stands for "pixel", a non-empty string
 in the external representation of the image.  The px length is
 the image's "cpp" (characters per pixel).  The "palette" is a
 set of associations between a px and its "color", which is an
 alist with symbolic TYPE and and string CVALUE.  TYPE is one of:

   c  -- color (most common)
   s  -- symbolic
   g  -- grayscale
   g4 -- four-level grayscale
   m  -- monochrome

 and CVALUE is a string, e.g., "blue" or "#0000FF".  Two images
 are "congruent" if their width, height and cpp are identical.

 This package was originally conceived for non-interactive use,
 so its design is spartan at the core.  However, we plan on
 adding a XPM mode in a future release; see HACKING link below.

 For now, the features (w/ correspondingly-named files) are:
 - xpm          -- edit XPM images
 - xpm-m2z      -- ellipse/circle w/ fractional center

 Some things are autoloaded.  Which ones?  Use the source, Luke!
 (Alternatively, just ask on help-gnu-emacs (at gnu dot org).)

Lastly, the adventurous might also find interesting:

If you are not adventurous, you might find the screenshot of xpm in
action at the Tip Jar link pleasant to pass your eyes over, anyway.
