Dear all,
one question about the MetaPost releases, specifically the one that goes 
TexLive 2013. In TexLive 2011 and 2012 there was MetaPost 1.504 which had
a bug in that it could not pass Metapost files that contained a dot in 
the file name
(before the .mp). Is that bug fixed in the mean time (as there seems to 
be version
1.790 now)? And which version of MetaPost will be taken over into 
TexLive 2013?
Especially will that bug be fixed in the version that goes into TexLive 
Thanks a lot for your help!
