Summary description: 2D and 3D TeX-Aware Vector Graphics Language

Announcement text:
Bezier triangle patches have been implemented in place of degenerate
Bezier tensor product patches. Surface rendering was improved. The
configuration of the readline and gc libraries was fixed. The asy
configuration directory is only created if localhistory=false. Patches
are now sorted by projected distance. Animations were fixed by running
LaTeX twice.  The asy-mode.el headers were updated. Intermittent
segmentation faults and floating point exceptions in the OpenGL
renderer were fixed. Support for GSL 2.0 was added. A quite nan
constant was added. Straight segments are no longer split in bezulate.
Segmentation faults in tab completion were fixed.  A work around for a
clang 3.7.0 compiler bug was implemented.  The smoothcontour routine
was sped up. Several bugs in the file read routines were fixed. A bug
in rest argument signature equivalence was fixed.  Threads are no
longer used in batch mode, except under MacOS X. A convenience function
graphicscale was added for using ! graphic with the conTeXt tex engine.
The splinetype detection for Spline surfaces was fixed.
