Work with 3D objects: Some materials may work with graphics cards that support PS 2. Instead of frame there is a “compound” object, which among other things makes possible very fast displays of objects consisting of several combined objects.

The main differences are that vectors must now be represented as vector x,y,z or vec x,y,znot as x,y,zthe name “display” has been changed to “canvas”, the name “gdisplay” has been changed to “graph”, and the curve and points objects have a new set of methods.
