John Bowman submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version number: 2.47 License type: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
Release Notes for Version 2.47 Further shipout and scaling problems were fixed. Unused files were removed. Multiple-page documents now produce PS instead of EPS output. Release Notes for Version 2.46 The pen width is now accounted for in the bbox function. The relative alignment of a label to a path now transforms correctly with picture rotation. Various shipout issues were fixed. The ghostscript library location from the MSWindows registry is now ignored for compatibility with TeXLive. Release Notes for Version 2.45 The xasy graphical front end for Asymptote has been rewritten to support code reordering, using Qt5 and scalable vector graphics. An uninitialized counter was fixed. A stable=true option was added to sort. The restricted simplex method has been replaced by a complete simplex solver that handles general size constraints. The rpc library has been replaced by the tirpc library. The dvips utility is forced to respect EPS requirements again. The system ghostscript library is now used by default for dvisvgm. Make clean now removes GSL symbols. The MSWindows system path is no longer modified by the installer. A CLZ bug 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.
