Release Notes: A segmentation fault in drawSphere was fixed. Recursive calls to simpson are now supported. The explicit libglapi dependency was removed. A latexmkrc example file that shows how to store figures in a subdirectory is now included.
Release Notes: Numerical resolution issues with the PRC camera orientation and viewportshift were fixed. The lighting of NURBS surfaces was fixed. The special 8192 strlen NSIS build was now correctly reinstated, with stubs, to prevent the installer from overwriting Windows PATH environment variables > 1023 bytes.
Release Notes: Ticks are no longer autoscaled when the number of major intervals is specified and autoscale is false. Manual tick scaling was fixed. A bug in the palette range was fixed. A division by zero in constructing curved arrows was fixed. A picture bound error was fixed. The current value of currentpen is respected in default arguments. A default viewportwidth is no longer imposed. Named arguments can now appear in function calls after rest arguments. The erase command no longer resets. Pipes are used for xasy. A mode parameter to input and output replaces xinput, xoutput, binput, and boutput.
Release Notes: Billboard interaction is now disabled for offscreen rendering. A markthin marker with opacity thinning has been implemented. The copy, map, and sequence functions have been generalized to arbitrary depths. Asymptote can now be compiled as a shared library. A tuple operator has been added. The draw(revolution) function now defers drawing until the final camera position is known. Nonrendered preview images can now be generated for fitted pictures. Jacobi elliptic functions have been implemented. A quick reference card has been added. Compilation and static initialization issues under Mac OS X Lion have been addressed.
Release Notes: The -P option required by ghostscript 9.00 was added. The limits command now works correctly with reversed axes. The asyinclude command of asymptote.sty was improved so that asy source files do not need to be sent to publishers; the asy extension is now optional. A mktemp function was implemented. Further MS Windows installer problems were addressed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a segmentation fault, perspective animations, and a bug in the bezulate topological sorting algorithm. A framedelay setting has been added for working around OpenGL animation rendering buffer overruns. Further optimizations have been made. A portability issue has been addressed.
Release Notes: Memory usage and garbage collection were greatly improved, and many optimizations were made. Labels are now aligned using the rotational instead of the shiftless part of the transform. A portable CYGWIN memory limit fix was implemented. Noncyclic stokepaths are discarded to work around a bug in gs 8.71.
Release Notes: Work-arounds were made for MS Windows registry problems and obsolete runtime libraries were implemented. The SimpleHead arrowhead was fixed. Additional matrix routines and casts were implemented. The pair dir(path, path) routine now returns a unit vector. Variable conflicts coming from the contour module were addressed. A RadialShadeDraw filltype was implemented. A guide bug was fixed. Redundant mismatched version warnings are avoided. Support for fitting one 3D picture within another was added. The documentation was updated.
Release Notes: Portability issues were addressed. Latticeshading bounds and behavior under svgemulation were fixed. The initial SVG pen was fixed. A parallelogram block was added to the flowchart module. Temporary files are cleaned up after TeX errors. The GUI export function was fixed; an SVG export option was added. The XeLaTex bounding box was fixed. Spaces in output directory names are allowed for supporting drivers. One can cd to other directories, preserving the output directory. All output files are written to the directory part of settings.outname; if this is empty, the current directory is used.
Release Notes: The 3D perspective sizing routines were improved. The offset in transformed 3D labels with render=0 and 3D planar arrowhead gaps were fixed. Pen width envelope contributions were fixed. The contour algorithm was improved. Default font problems were fixed. The size of pngalpha images was fixed. The -alpha Off default convert option was removed in favor of convertOptions="-alpha Off". Inlinetex support for xelatex was updated. Transformations are now respected by latticeshade. The Bessel functions were renamed to Jn and Yn. The expression % expands to the last interactive result.
