Not so fast. Note that I copied the message to tex-live. This is a
list very frequented by CTAN and TL maintainers, so hopefully they
will notice, update on CTAN, update on TL and in the not distant
future sudo tlmgr update --all brings a new pdftricks

So, you can wait or install pdftricks manually, but then put them either in


(and run sudo texhash) or in


Putting in distribution TDS would be wrong (but without any consequences)
