On Sat, 26 Jun 2010 John Bowman submitted an update to the
asymptote
package.
Summary description: 2D & 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language
License type: lgpl
Announcement text:

Version 2.00 The construction of 3D TeX labels was sped up greatly. Plain TeX page numbers were suppressed. Dotted 3D lines and 3D sizing problems were fixed. A general search function for sorted structures was implemented; the lexorder functions in math.asy now return strict partial orders. Additional GSL functions were added. The correct PRC units (PostScript pt units, properly called bp) are now displayed in Adobe Reader.

This package is located at http://mirror.ctan.org/graphics/asymptote/ . More information is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=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 . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/usergroups.html . Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

## asymptote – 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language

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.
