This package has been updated at tug.ctan.org and should soon be at your local mirror. 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:
The interface for changing the precision for XDR/binary files was simplified; file parameters can now be queried as virtual members. The zoom/menu action was improved to emulate a double-click and assigned again to the right mouse button; a left-button binding bug was fixed. New settings zoomfactor, zoomstep, spinstep, arcballradius, resizestep, and doubleclick were added. The OpenGL thread is now exited gracefully; idle state and other parameters are properly reset on quitting. Lighting is now initialized only in home(). Animations with global=false were fixed. An improved (and free) psview PostScript viewer is now suggested for MSDOS users. A mechanism for disabling annoying warnings like "writeoverloaded" was implemented. The documentation directory under TeXLive was fixed.

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.
