CTAN update: asymptote

Date: March 4, 2020 7:40:17 AM CET
John Bowman submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version number: 2.63 License type: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
A race condition in the AsyGL library was fixed. Emissive and shininess values can be overridden for vertex colors. Thin Bezier curves can be drawn with lighting enabled. Outline mode for 3D surfaces was fixed; outline and mesh mode were ported to WebGL. Degenerate surface normals were fixed. The octant1, hemisphere, and sphere surfaces were replaced by nondegenerate versions that render faster. The unitcone, unitfrustum, and DefaultHead3 arrowhead were simplified. A robust and more efficient tube routine was implemented; the PRC tube primitive was removed. WebGL compression was achieved by implementing sphere, disk, cylinder, and tube primitives in the AsyGL library. Patches are now split in both directions only when required. If the GNU Readline library is unavailable, the Editline library is used to at least support command-line editing, without history features. An MSDOS configuration issue was fixed.

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.
