Summary description: 3d sketching in a PSTricks-like language; major update
License type: gpl

Announcement text: 

This is a major update to the previous CTAN upload of Sketch.  It has important 
adaptations to newer PSTricks versions, adds support for ConTeXt, and fixes a 
few bugs.

Sketch is a small, simple system for producing line drawings of 
three-dimensional objects and scenes. It began as a way to make illustrations 
for a textbook after we could find no suitable tool for this purpose. Existing 
scene processors emphasized GUIs and/or photo-realism, both un-useful to us. We 
wanted to produce finely wrought, mathematically-based illustrations with no 
extraneous detail and be able to easily overlay TeX math and text. The input 
language is reminiscent of PSTricks, so will be easy to learn for current 
PSTricks users.  See http://www.frontiernet.net/~eugene.ressler .


This package is located at 
.  More information is at
(if the package is new it may take a day for that information to 
appear).  We are supported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org .

Thanks for the upload.
