CTAN update: asymptote

Date: December 29, 2021 9:47:31 AM CET
John Bowman submitted updates to the asymptote package. Version: 2.73 2021-12-27 License: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
Release Notes for Version 2.73 The asygl library was updated to support embedding of WebGL and WebGL2 scenes on the same page. Release Notes for Version 2.72 WebGL2 is enabled by default only for examples that use image-based lighting. Multiple output formats in threaded interactive mode are now handled correctly. CPU partial sum indexing is used in the 3D transparency shader if the compute shader fails to compile. Release Notes for Version 2.71 Support for the portable compressed 3D vector file format V3D was added. The default value of settings.prc was changed to false. Efficient order-independent transparency was implemented for modern OpenGL platforms and the OSMesa offscreen rendering engine (with no interactive transparency support for Mac OS X and WebGL). The WebGL library now uses WebGL2 if available. Image-based lighting was implemented. Many bug fixes and improvements were made to Xasy, allowing objects drawn with the graphical editor to be saved to and restored from a .xasy file, as well as being exportable to an .asy file. A function was added to graph a parametric function with control points determined by the specified derivative. The recommended PostScript viewer for MSWindows is now Sumatra PDF. The workflow for generating transparent PDFs and PNGs was fixed. Emacs lasy-mode was patched to work with Emacs >= 23. Support for the Language Server Protocol was added. Compilation with COMPACT=0 is supported again. All threads now return the same error code. A remote command-line interface to http://asymptote.ualberta.ca is now available.

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.
