New on CTAN: asypictureB

Charles Staats III submitted the

                asypictureB

package.

Version number: 0.3
License type: lppl1.3

Summary description: User-friendly integration of Asymptote into LaTeX

Announcement text:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

The asypictureB package is an unofficial alternative to the asymptote
package for creating Asymptote pictures within a latex source file.
While it does not duplicate all the features of the official package,
it is more user-friendly in several ways. Most notably, Asymptote
errors are repackaged as LaTeX errors, making debugging less of a pain.
It also has a more robust mechanism for identifying unchanged pictures
that need not be recompiled.
