Tioga is a Ruby library for creating figures and plots with high quality text and graphics in PDF format. Text is processed directly by TeX (not an emulation), and the graphics covers a broad range of PDF features including images, curves, clipping, and transparency. Tioga is relatively easy to use, complete, and well documented.

Release Notes: Minor enhancements were made. This release brings in essentially two new features. Firstly, a new interpolation function was added for Dvector for so called monotonic interpolation. Secondly, the user now has more control over the look of the axes, including the possibility to select the color of tick labels and better consistency of the dictionary entries between axis_info and show_axis.
Release Notes: This release allows more control of the position and the look of axis via extended arguments of show_axis and a new function, axis_information. It also features several bugfixes (including a fix for broken Rubygem installation) and many cleanups (fixes for compilation warnings).
Release Notes: It is now possible to compute the exact size of a text typeset by LaTeX and use it. In addition to that, there are several bugfixes and other less significant improvements (legends with markers only and Dvector/Function improvements).
