PyScript is a python module for producing high quality postscript
graphics. Rather than use a GUI to draw a picture, the picture is
programmed using python and the PyScript objects.

Some of the key features are:
    * All scripting is done in python, which is a high level, easy to
      learn, well developed scripting language.
    * All the objects can be translated, scaled, rotated, ... in fact
      any affine transformation.
    * Plain text is automatically kerned.
    * You can place abritrary LaTeX expressions on your figures.
    * You can create your own figure objects, and develop a library of
      figure primitives.
    * Output is publication quality.

LICENSE: Released under the GPL

The major change in this release is a complete rewrite of the Path
object. The internals have completely changed and there have been
some incompatible changes with previous versions but it's now much
closer to what was envisaged for the object.  There have also been
many bug fixes and minor other improvements.  For details see the
PyScript web page:
