Summary: asymptote-2.46asymptote-2.47

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 The restricted simplex method has been replaced by a complete simplex solver that handles general size constraints. The rpc library has been replaced by the tirpc library.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. ~

Note that the old (python2) version of xasy, which was apparently renamed to xasyTk in 2.45, has now dropped out. The replacement xasy uses PyQt5 (python3, from PyPi), I see no particular reason to test that part.

DESTDIR now needs to be exported before running make install - I've updated the wiki (and removed my old comment about how fragile the old python2/tk version of xasy was - no longer relevant).
