Release 0.4-0 of package misc3d is now available from CRAN. This package provides a small collection of functions for 3D plotting, including 'contour3d' for computing and rendering 3D contours or isosurfaces and 'parametric3d' for rendering parameterized surfaces.

A major change in this release is that rendering in standard and grid graphics is now supported in addition to rgl. To support rendering in standard and grid graphics the package includes some functions for managing and rendering triangle mesh representations of surfaces. Rendering uses simple lighting and shading algorithms to represent 3D structure. The examples in


illustrate some of the features.
