          Release Notes: The PRC viewportmargin perspective was fixed. Unwanted spaces were removed from (version 1.10 of) asymptote.sty. Support for drawing PRC and OpenGL NURBS surfaces was added. Obsolete code, including an unwanted inline qualifier, was removed. A split structure that can be adapted for splitting intersecting patches was added, along with an example, splitpatch.asy.

            Release Notes: OpenGL animations, illustrated in glmovie.asy, were implemented. Splined parametric surfaces are used to implement smooth thick lines and tubes. The projected bounding box calculation and angle calculations were fixed. A labelsurface function was added. The Headlamp light is now the default light. Picture environments for TeX clipping are no longer nested. A texpath initialization bug was fixed. An ASYMPTOTE_HOME environment variable was added. Viewing was fixed for file names containing spaces. The cyclic member of an array is writeable; file mode functions are now virtual members.

              Release Notes: Threaded exports were fixed. The texpath fontsize was fixed for PDF tex engines. A default currentprojection argument was added to transform3(projection). The -gray and -bw settings are now respected in PRC output. A consistent approximation is now used for drawing tube centers. Missing pt units were added to all fontsize examples.

                Release Notes: A boolean targetsize option can be used to draw 3D labels with the apparent size they would have on the target plane. The camera adjustments were fixed; the autoadjust flag is respected. Missing path3 functions such as endpoint were added. The doubleclick timeout under Windows was fixed. A ConTeXT font bug workaround is illustrated in contextfonts.asy. File associations are now used under Windows for psviewer, pdfviewer, display, and animate. Single quotation marks are now allowed in filenames. The lmfit example illustrates Levenberg-Marquardt nonlinear least-squares fitting.

                  Release Notes: The interface for changing the precision for XDR/binary files was simplified. File parameters can now be queried as virtual members. The zoom/menu action was improved to emulate a double-click and assigned to the right mouse button again. A left-button binding bug was fixed. Rendering settings were added. The OpenGL thread now exits gracefully, and idle state and other parameters are properly reset on quitting. Lighting is now initialized only in home(). Animations with global=false were fixed. An improved (and free) psview PostScript viewer is now suggested for MS-DOS users.

                    Release Notes: The perp vector calculation in the solids module was fixed. A bug in the mouse motion functions was fixed. A pan action was added to the OpenGL renderer; the Camera (c) menu item now outputs all camera settings. The default right mouse button mouse binding was changed from "zoom/menu" to "zoom". Dynamic time stepping was fixed in the ode module; the "integrate" routines now return the array of computed values. == and != operators were added for all built-in arithmetic 2D arrays. A segmentation fault was fixed. The etc/fstab kludge for Cygwin 1.7 was removed.

                      Release Notes: Thread locking issues were fixed. The line granularity is now respected when drawing thick curved lines. A bug in FSAL ODE integrators when using a fixed time step was fixed. Missing miterlimit defaults were added. Xasy was updated to use Python 2.6.2 and Imaging-1.1.7b1. Obsolete patches were removed. The install-prebuilt target omits texhash and does not attempt to install PNG files for asymptote.info. A configuration problem with --disable-gc was fixed. The 3D mouse bindings are now customizable. Support was added for generating syntax highlighting for the KDE editor Kate.
