Date: February 5, 2016 8:25:31 AM CET
John C. Bowman and Andy Hammerlindl submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version number: 2.36 License type: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
Bezier triangle patches have been implemented in place of degenerate Bezier tensor product patches. Surface rendering was improved. The configuration of the readline and gc libraries was fixed. The asy configuration directory is only created if localhistory=false. Patches are now sorted by projected distance. Animations were fixed by running LaTeX twice. The asy-mode.el headers were updated. Intermittent segmentation faults and floating point exceptions in the OpenGL renderer were fixed. Support for GSL 2.0 was added. A quite nan constant was added. Straight segments are no longer split in bezulate. Segmentation faults in tab completion were fixed. A work around for a clang 3.7.0 compiler bug was implemented. The smoothcontour routine was sped up. Several bugs in the file read routines were fixed. A bug in rest argument signature equivalence was fixed. Threads are no longer used in batch mode, except under MacOS X. A convenience function graphicscale was added for using ! graphic with the conTeXt tex engine. The splinetype detection for Spline surfaces was fixed.

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.
