CTAN update: asymptote

John Bowman submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version number: 2.66 License type: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
A bug in the Bezier patch bounds was fixed. Vertex and material data are copied from the CPU to GPU only when necessary. The default Headlamp light was brightened. WebGL output is centered in the viewport, extending to the canvas boundary; the precision of planar Bezier surfaces was increased to avoid artifacts. Fullscreen mode has been fixed; the new default maxviewport=(0,0) specifies the screen dimensions. Camera adjustment was fixed. Problems with Xasy and interactive signals under MSWindows were fixed. A background color for both 2D and 3D images can be specified with currentlight.background. Offscreen rendering on headless machines has been reinstated; while the setting offscreen has been removed, one can again configure asy for either onscreen or offscreen rendering. Clipping was removed from the slopefield module. Functions mapArray, mapTemplate, real abs2(pair), and real abs2(triple) were implemented. The new Ghostscript transparency model requires Ghostscript 9.52 or later. The detection of TeX errors was improved. An array segmentation fault was fixed; array dimensions are checked. Flattened monochrome tensor patches with interior internal control points are now drawn as filled cyclic paths. PDF offsets were fixed, along with the auto-reload feature for Acroread. SVG support was improved; 2D images can now be output in HTML format using inline SVG code, to support the Asymptote Web Application, a new cloud service at http://asymptote.ualberta.ca.

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.
