John Bow­man sub­mit­ted an up­date to the asymp­tote pack­age. Ver­sion: 2.48 Li­cense: lgpl3 Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vec­tor Graph­ics Lan­guage An­nounce­ment text:
The OpenGL code was mod­ern­ized to use GLSL shaders. Trans­par­ent tri­an­gles of dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als are now sorted be­fore draw­ing. The view­port op­tion from the light func­tion was re­moved. A workaround was im­ple­mented for the Ghostscript trans­parency ex­ten­sion -dSAFER bug. Bugs in the sim­plex method were fixed. Ex­per­i­men­tal off­screen ren­der­ing is now dis­abled by de­fault due to NVIDIA con­flicts. The min, max, min­ra­tio, maxra­tio, and in­ter­sec­tion cal­cu­la­tions were ac­cel­er­ated. A workaround was im­ple­mented for bro­ken In­tel GPU drivers un­der MSWin­dows.

asymp­tote – 2D and 3D -Aware Vec­tor Graph­ics Lan­guage

Asymp­tote is a pow­er­ful de­scrip­tive vec­tor graph­ics lan­guage for tech­ni­cal draw­ing, in­spired by but with an im­proved C++-like syn­tax. Asymp­tote pro­vides for fig­ures the same high-qual­ity level of type­set­ting that does for sci­en­tific text.
