This package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. Thanks, Jim Hefferon Saint Michael's College .................................................................... The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: Asymptote Author's name: Andy Hammerlindl and John Bowman Location on CTAN: /graphics/asymptote Summary description: 2D & 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language License type: lgpl Announcement text:
An error in the surface bounding box routines was fixed. Path/surface intersection routines were added. PDF tex engines are now supported for 3D labels and texpath. The new ConTeXT tex engine can be used for both 2D and non-PRC 3D drawings. Projections LeftView, RightView, FrontView, BackView, BottomView, and TopView, along with an addViews function, were implemented. Portability fixes and various updates to support TeXLive builds were made. The dependence on currentprojection in label(Label, path3) was removed. The font command for LaTeX tex engines now requires all four NFSS (encoding, family, series, shape) arguments.

asymptote – 2D and 3D -Aware Vector Graphics Language

Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by but with an improved C++-like syntax. Asymptote provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that does for scientific text.
