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

Announcement text:

A race condition in the AsyGL library was fixed. Emissive and
shininess values can be overridden for vertex colors. Thin Bezier
curves can be drawn with lighting enabled. Outline mode for 3D surfaces
was fixed; outline and mesh mode were ported to WebGL. Degenerate
surface normals were fixed. The octant1, hemisphere, and sphere
surfaces were replaced by nondegenerate versions that render faster.
The unitcone, unitfrustum, and DefaultHead3 arrowhead were simplified.
A robust and more efficient tube routine was implemented;
the PRC tube primitive was removed. WebGL compression was achieved by
implementing sphere, disk, cylinder, and tube primitives in the AsyGL 
Patches are now split in both directions only when required.
If the GNU Readline library is unavailable, the Editline library
is used to at least support command-line editing, without history 
An MSDOS configuration issue was fixed.
