comment Horizontal - Vertical connectors in a tree (in place of slanted lines)
About the name: the first version of forest (then called xyforest, since it used xypic) was developed for dealing with multiple (albeit small) trees, all nicely lined up ---I needed it for drawing phonological (autosegmental) representations. And anyways, all the good Xtree names were already taken! ;-)

comment Horizontal - Vertical connectors in a tree (in place of slanted lines)
Good to hear all this praise, guys! ;-) And soon ... a new version coming up! Updating the docs now ... hope you'll volunteer to beta-test a bit!

comment How can I draw a circle around an entire tree in forest?
Found it! I forgot to save&restore pgf's transformation matrix in some calculation, so, in your example, essentially x and y coordinates got switched. However, as a major new version (1.1) should be out very soon, I don't think it makes much sense for me to publish a bugfix version, especially as there are workarounds for the problem. Unless you really want it, of course!

comment Forest package does not pick up \tikzsetfigurename command with externalization enabled
Forest supports virtually none of tikz's externalization settings ... getting externalization to work was heavy hacking anyway, and my focus was on sensitivity to code change. I'm planning to support externalization better, but I'm afraid the issue is at the bottom of my todo list.

About edge sensitivity: the edge boundary path option has just moved up on my todo list! ;-)

comment Shifting a node over another node in forest
About comes. Don't create an extra node, use option align and separate lines by \\. This definition of with translation does the trick: \forestset{with translation/.style={inner xsep=0,align=center,content/.expanded/.wrap pgfmath arg={\gettext{##1}\noexpand\\\gettranslation{##1}}{content}}} (Actually, if you are fine with using \\ in the tree code, you could dispense with \gettranslation and \gettext macros alltogether.)

comment Add a node without content to a tree in forest
@Herbert: edge={} by itself does nothing, as the argument of edge is a keylist and keylists behave additively by default (section 3.3 of the manual). Use edge'={} to get rid of your edges ;-)

comment Making a certain tree style the default for forest
I had no idea this is possible, and I'm the author of forest :-) However, to make the issue clearer, the next version will implement key default preamble. Usage just as above: \forestset{default preamble/.style={sn edges}}}

Nope ;-( But I'll add it to my todo list as well!

comment How can I draw a circle around an entire tree in forest?
This is a bug, and one can get it also in situations other than the entire tree; for example, set grow=0 for nodes w and y. I'll try to fix this asap.
