Hi Taco and others,

Unfortunately, it does not work for me. :((

The only difference between the output of the different versions of MetaPost
is in the comments Creator and CreationDate, e.g.

$ diff test1.1 test3.1
< %%Creator: MetaPost 0.993
< %%CreationDate: 2007.10.29:1705
> %%Creator: MetaPost 1.000
> %%CreationDate: 2007.10.29:1657

I have used only the binaries from MetaPost 1.000
and the format file mpost.mem generated for it, all other files were from the 
old MetaPost.  At least there is no difference between the two versions of 
mpost.mp and TEX.mp.

Best wishes,

	Gábor Braun
