Nature of problem:
Comparison with the previous version, and reasons for the new version The tau decay library [2] is enriched by new decay modes involving kaons: tau- ->nuK+K-pi-, nuKbar**0K**0pi-, nuK-K**0pi**0, nuK-pi**0pi0, nuK-pi-pi+, nuK**0pi**0pi-, etanupi-pi**0, the omega pi contribution to nupi-pi0gamma. For the tau decay modes into four pions tau- ->nu2pi-pi+pi0, pi-3pi0, the simplified dynamical treatment has been replaced by a more appropriate one, in particular, the omegapi contribution and rho enhancement in 2pi-pi+pi**0 channel have been implemented.

Running time:
37 events per (IBM 3090 168 units) seconds, in case of all decay modes populated uniformly.
