CTAN update: asymptote

Date: March 15, 2016 12:22:54 PM CET
John Bowman and Andy Hammerlindl submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version number: 2.37 License type: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
The xasy graphical user interface now runs under both Python 2.7 and Python 3. Legacy versions (prior to 9.14) of Ghostscript can be supported by assigning settings.epsdriver="epswrite" (or by setting the environment variable ASYMPTOTE_EPSDRIVER to epswrite). The quiet flag suppresses noninteractive standard output when settings.verbosity <= 1. A progress function was added to the plain_strings module. The smoothcontour3 module was optimized to use Bezier triangles where appropriate, along with a built-in least-squares routine and an improved root finder based on quadratic interpolation. If settings.sysdir is empty, preference is given to a version of kpsewhich in the same directory as the executable for determining the correct sysdir. The handling of degenerate normals of Bezier triangles was fixed. Bugs in forking, integer formatting, dash adjustment, subpaths, and guide reversion were fixed. Version 1.30 of asymptote.sty (auto-generated) and version 0.35 (or later) of media9.sty are now required.

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.
