This update should be at your local mirror in a day. Jim Hef{}feron Saint Michael's College ................................................................................. The following information was provided by our fellow contributor: Name of contribution: Asymptote Version number: 1.87 Author's name: John Bowman Location on CTAN: /graphics/asymptote Summary description: 2D & 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language License type: lgpl Announcement text:
Support for SVG output was added (requires dvisvgm-0.8.4). Billboard labels were implemented for the OpenGL renderer. OpenGL animations were improved: reverse and step menu items were added, along with a framerate setting. An addStereoViews function and example stereoscopic.asy were added. The addViews function was generalized to handle any layout; the default layout was changed from ThreeViewsFR to SixViewsUS. PRC node names are now implemented for curves, surface, labels, and dots. OmitTick was generalized to omit both major and minor ticks. A graphicx.tex workaround was implemented to parse paths properly. A viewportsize bug was fixed. A memory deallocation bug was fixed. The ENDIAN test was fixed. The ucyclic and vcyclic parameters are no longer set for conditional surfaces. The erase() function clears the PostScript canvas again. A projection() function that returns the interactive camera parameters was implemented. A hyperrefOptions setting was implemented. The tutorial was improved.

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.
