CTAN Update: Asymptote

Date: May 27, 2011 9:36:05 PM CEST
On Fri, 27 May 2011 John Bowman submitted an update to the asymptote package. Summary description: 2D & 3D TeX-aware vector graphics language License type: lgpl Announcement text:
PRC vertex-shading for straight patches was implemented. A general image routine that uses a pen function of two integer parameters was implemented. A 3D pixel routine was added. A temporary expression is now used to avoid side effects in self operators. Keyword-only function arguments were implemented. The sizing routines were recoded. Bugs in drawline and geometry were fixed. The geometry module no longer overloads the built-in circle and ellipse functions. PDF TeX engines are now supported in xasy. Directory prefixes are no longer stripped from .js and .prc file names. The TeXShop instructions were updated. The asymptote.sty LaTeX style file was updated to allow leading spaces before \end{asy} and to introduce a keepAspect keyval option. Segmentation faults were fixed. Unwanted state-dependency was removed from the startTrembling function of the contributed trembling module by introducing a tremble structure (backwards incompatible change); see the example floatingdis!

More information is at http://www.ctan.org/pkg/asymptote (if the package is new it may take a day for that information to appear). We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

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.
