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

Announcement text:
 A 2D transparency bug was fixed. Vim support was improved.
 To support PNG transparency, the default driver was changed
 from pngalpha to png16m and the pdflatex TeX engine is used
 instead of latex. A pngdriver option was added.
 To support WebGL, billboard labels are enabled when configured
 for offscreen rendering.
 The subdivision crack work around for PRC output was removed.
 Compilation without the tirpc library is supported again (but
 not recommended since the V3D format requires XDR support).
