Q How to install the latest version of PGF/TikZ?
A Make sure that you have the latest TeXLive installation and that all packages are up to date. Locate the URL of the latest PGF build at http://www.texample.net/tikz/builds/. Then execute the following commands in a root shell:
 mkdir /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf/tex/generic/pgf-2.00-cvs
 cd /usr/local/texlive/2009/texmf/tex/generic/pgf-2.00-cvs
 curl --proxy proxy.unibe.ch:80 $URL -o pgf.zip
 unzip pgf.zip
 rm pgf.zip
 mktexlsr
