CTAn Update: asymptote

Date: August 16, 2009 2:23:03 PM CEST
On Sat, 15 Aug 2009 John Bowman submitted an update to 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:
OpenGL animations, illustrated in glmovie.asy, were implemented. Viewportshift flicker was fixed. An empirical translation between OpenGL and PRC shininess was implemented. Splined parametric surfaces are now used to implement smooth thick lines and tubes. The projected bounding box calculation and angle calculations were fixed. A labelsurface function was added. The Headlamp light is now the default light; a light argument was added to shipout. Patches are now constructed with the usual orientation for a counterclockwise external path; the convention for tensor product shading was updated. Picture environments for TeX clipping are no longer nested. A texpath initialization bug was fixed. An ASYMPTOTE_HOME environment variable was added. Viewing was fixed for file names conntaining spaces. A picture sizing bug was fixed. An example of an inset graph was added. Type information for variables is now returned at the interactive prompt. Warning message suppression was improved; warnings in Asymptote code can now be disabled. The cyclic member of an array is now writeable; the obsolete cyclicflag and void cyclic(bool) functions were removed. File mode functions are now virtual members; this backwards incompatibility requires that line(file f) be changed to f.line(), etc.
