Ten years after the publication of the previous release, we present a new edition of the Asiago Supernova Catalogue updated to December 31, 1998 and containing data for 1447 supernovae and their parent galaxies. In addition to the list of the data for a large number of new SNe, we made an effort to search the literature for new information on past SNe as well. We also tried to update and homogenize the data for the parent galaxies. To allow a global view of the Catalogue, a few descriptive figures and a summary table are reported. The present Catalogue is intended as a large and modern database for statistical studies on the supernova phenomenon.

Key words: supernovae and supernova remnants:general -- surveys -- galaxies: general -- galaxies: stellar contents of
