CTAN update: asymptote

Date: January 8, 2022 2:57:07 PM CET
John Bowman submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version: 2.75 2022-01-06 License: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
A 2D transparency bug was fixed. Vim support was improved. To support PNG transparency, the default driver was changed from pngalpha to png16m and the pdflatex TeX engine is used instead of latex. A pngdriver option was added. To support WebGL, billboard labels are enabled when configured for offscreen rendering. The subdivision crack work around for PRC output was removed. Compilation without the tirpc library is supported again (but not recommended since the V3D format requires XDR support).
The package’s Catalogue entry can be viewed at https://ctan.org/pkg/asymptote The package’s files themselves can be inspected at https://mirrors.ctan.org/graphics/asymptote/
Thanks for the upload. For the CTAN Team Petra Rübe-Pugliese

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.
