    Release Notes: A new render.labelfill option (enabled by default) fills subdivision cracks in unlighted labels. The dependence on GCC 4.3 was removed. Offscreen detection and zoom bugs in the OpenGL renderer were fixed. Three-dimensional grouping was improved. The symbol table was replaced with a custom hash table. Portability updates were made. The Cygwin memory limit fix for MSWindows now works even on systems that lack a complete Cygwin installation. The examples were updated to exploit the new PRC rendering options.

        Release Notes: The PRC driver has been overhauled to support model tree groups, lossy compression, efficient representations of elementary geometrical objects, and specialized rendering options. More efficient OpenGL thick tubes were implemented; the capping of 3D curves was improved. The SIGQUIT signal was replaced by SIGTERM. Under MS Windows, the 384MB Cygwin memory limit is now automatically disabled by the Asymptote installer. Inferred variable types were added and operator symbols are now pretranslated.

          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: Labels now work correctly with oblique projections. Transformed Label alignment and pt scalings were fixed. Latticeshading is now properly clipped. The normal and true Circle calculations were fixed. The interface to the simpson integrator and an array index in contour.asy were fixed. In the flowchart module, the implicit cast from a pair to a virtual node was removed in favor of a block constructor. New predefined tick modifiers were added. Garbage collection was improved. Non-PDF output is supported for PDF tex engines. Portability changes for CYGWIN 1.7 were made.

                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.

                  Release Notes: SVG axial, radial, and emulated tensor-patch shading were fixed; the dependency on dvisvgm-0.8.7 was documented.

                    Release Notes: The draw, fill, and clip commands now pass raw SVG code directly to dvisvgm-0.8.6; zero-length paths are output as circles. Unsupported SVG elements are converted to PNG images; unimplemented SVG shading features can be emulated as vector elements using -svgemulation. The control point normalization of rational NURBS surfaces was fixed; 3D NURBS curves are now implemented. A problem with inlinemovie3 was fixed. The linetype pattern is now a real array. The palette routines are now guaranteed to generate at least the specified number of colors. Surface and path3 garbage collection was fixed.

                      Release Notes: Compilation without OpenGL was fixed. PRC billboard labels were implemented; settings.billboard was renamed to settings.autobillboard and by default enabled for all 3D labels. The surface constructor for embedding labels on surfaces now draws both the top and bottom faces by default. The meshpen, knot, weight, and color arrays are now properly cached. The example fequlogo.asy illustrates how to draw an arbitrary 3D background plane. The intermediate DVI file is now removed when producing SVG output. Improvements were made to the tutorial.
