CTAN Update: asymptote

Date: July 14, 2009 9:08:53 AM CEST
On Tue, 14 Jul 2009, John Bowman submitted version 1.81 of the asymptote package. Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost but with an improved C++-like syntax. Asymptote provides for figures the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for scientific text. Location on CTAN: /graphics/asymptote Summary description: 2D & 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language License type: lgpl Announcement text:
A boolean targetsize option can now be used to draw 3D labels with the apparent size they would have on the target plane. The camera adjustment algorithms were fixed; the autoadjust flag is respected. Missing path3 functions such as endpoint(path3) were added. The doubleclick timeout under MSWindows was fixed. A workaround for a ConTeXT small font bug is illustrated in contextfonts.asy. File associations are now used under MSWindows for psviewer, pdfviewer, display, and animate. Single quotation marks are now allowed in filenames. Deconstruction is now only supported in PNG format; the xformat setting was removed. The example lmfit illustrates Levenberg-Marquardt nonlinear least-squares fitting.
