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

Announcement text:
Asymptote <http://asymptote.sourceforge.net> is a powerful descriptive
vector graphics language for technical drawing, inspired by MetaPost
but with an improved C++-like syntax. Asymptote provides for figures
the same high-quality level of typesetting that LaTeX does for
scientific text.

A partial workaround for the OpenGL transparency bug was implemented,
by presorting transparent triangles of the same material. The examples
were updated and a segmentation fault was fixed. Multisample detection,
surface rendering, and crack filling algorithms were fixed. The default
compilation flags now specify -std=c++11.
