Thank you.

In that release, is the "-\infty" bug (see below) repaired?

In release 1.803, the file :

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
verbatimtex
%&latex
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\begin{document}
etex;
prologues:=3;
outputtemplate:="%j.mps";
beginfig(1)
label(btex $-\infty$ etex,(0,100));
label(btex $-\!\infty$ etex,(0,50));
label(btex $-\,\infty$ etex,(0,0));
endfig;
end;
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

gives a strange thing for the first label.

Best regards

François
