comment:1 by ken@…, 19 months ago

On tlbuild yestreen there was a request for those who provide the binaries for texlive to update to 2.63 for the 2020 testing (although 2.62 was intended for TL2020). Another day, another version ;-)

As often with asy, delay until the dust has settled.

From the README for 2.63:

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 library. 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 features. An MSDOS configuration issue was fixed.

From the README for 2.64:

Discontinuities were removed from the rotating minimizing frame used for constructing tubes. A work around was implemented for an incorrect declaration in obsolete versions of the NetBSD readline header file.
