CTAN update: asymptote

Date: October 1, 2019 9:01:46 AM CEST
John Bowman submitted an update to the asymptote package. Version number: 2.55 License type: lgpl3 Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language Announcement text:
Release Notes for Version 2.55 An initialization bug in the OpenGL renderer and portability issues were fixed. Release Notes for Version 2.54 Support for generating and embedding interactive 3D WebGL vector graphics within an HTML file has been added, allowing Asymptote figures to be displayed on modern mobile and desktop browsers. The OpenGL rendering routines were further optimized, yielding higher frame rates and lower memory usage. The view position for perspective projection was fixed. The default value of file word() was fixed. Installation issues were addressed. A new digits setting controls the default output file precision. A hanging pipe was fixed. The popcount function was extended to systems that lack 64-bit integers. The order of PRC quad colours was fixed. If lighting is enabled, vertex colors are now ignored in PRC images; when drawing a surface s, use draw(s,prc() ? nolight : currentlight); to disable lighting manually and recover the old behaviour.

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.
