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

Announcement text:

Scenes with lighting disabled are rendered correctly in WebGL. Attempting 
to output HTML for 2D pictures produces an SVG file. A conditional was 
removed from the fragment shaders. A viewportshift option was added to the 
WebGL driver; the home (h) key now forces a remesh. The version number was 
removed from the local offline copy of asygl. A numerical degeneracy in 
the conic sections intersection routine was fixed. A workaround for the 
broken XDR headers under MacOS X was implemented. An issue with animations 
was fixed. The --version option displays a list of compiled-in features.
