Release Notes for Version 2.47

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 The restricted simplex method has been replaced by a complete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has been replaced by the tirpc library.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.
