windows default iconAsymptote for Windows Publisher's description

Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language that provides a natural coordinate-based framework for technical drawing.

Asymptote is a powerful descriptive vector graphics language that provides a natural coordinate-based framework for technical drawing. Labels and equations are typeset with LaTeX, for high-quality PostScript output.

A major advantage of Asymptote over other graphics packages is that it is a programming language, as opposed to just a graphics program.

Features of Asymptote:

# provides a portable standard for typesetting mathematical figures, just as TeX/LaTeX has become the standard for typesetting equations;

# generates and embeds 3D vector PRC graphics within PDF files;

# inspired by MetaPost, with a much cleaner, powerful C++-like programming syntax and floating-point numerics;

# runs on all major platforms (UNIX, MacOS, Microsoft Windows);

# mathematically oriented (e.g. rotation of vectors by complex multiplication);

# LaTeX typesetting of labels (for document consistency);

# uses simplex method and deferred drawing to solve overall size constraint issues between fixed-sized objects (labels and arrowheads) and objects that should scale with figure size;

# fully generalizes MetaPost path construction algorithms to three dimensions;

# compiles commands into virtual machine code for speed without sacrificing portability;

# high-level graphics commands are implemented in the Asymptote language itself, allowing them to be easily tailored to specific applications.

What's New in This Release:

В· PRC vertex-shading for straight patches was implemented.
В· A general image routine that uses a pen function of two integer parameters was implemented.
В· A 3D pixel routine was added.
В· A temporary expression is now used to avoid side effects in self operators.
В· Keyword-only function arguments were implemented.
В· The sizing routines were recoded.
В· Bugs in drawline and geometry were fixed.
В· The geometry module no longer overloads the built-in circle and ellipse functions.
В· PDF TeX engines are now supported in xasy.
В· Directory prefixes are no longer stripped from .js and .prc file names.
В· The TeXShop instructions were updated.
В· The asymptote.sty LaTeX style file
В· was updated to allow leading spaces before \end{asy} and to introduce a
