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

Announcement text:

Intersection points in geometry.asy are now returned in currentcoordsys; a 
numerical precision issue was also fixed. Ambiguous function signatures in 
geometry.asy are resolved by requiring explicit casts when converting 
general forms to special cases. The xasy editor selection is now 
consistent. Building the asymptote.so shared library is supported again. 
A bug in rendering indexed triangle arrays was fixed. Execution errors in 
support utilities are now handled gracefully. Due to current limitations 
of dvisvgm (2.7.4), graphic() can only display SVG output (used by the 
xasy vector editor) for external vector EPS graphics (embedded images, 
PDF, PNG, and JPG formats are not yet supported). Building under CYGWIN 
with X11 is supported again. The --version option lists both enabled and 
disabled features. The GLX library is explicitly linked if present.
