Release Notes for Build Stamp 2012080200 w.r.t. previous 2012052101
===================================================================

 o ADDED billboard support for x3d/x3dom. Use :billboard
   :billboard-vector keyword in :display-controls.

 o ADDED partial text-line support for x3d, added anchor support for
   x3d and x3dom. Bind gdl:*onclick-function* dynamically around call
   to (with-format (x3d ...)) to apply an onclick function to the
   anchor.

 o ADDED STEP assembly output with names and colors. 

   Produce assembly with 

     (with-format (step <path>.stp :assembly? t) (write-the ...))
 
   Still missing: nested coordinate system transforms at
   subassemblies.

 o ADDED sections to documentation/training/g102-tud/

 o ADDED ability to have gpl/ directory (with gnu-emacs and
   ghostscript) as a sibling directory of Gendl application directory,
   in addition to the old style of having it be within the Gendl
   directory.

 o ADDED M-x gendl as startup equivalent to M-x slime

 o ADDED M-x quit-gendl as shutdown equivalent to M-x slime-quit-lisp

 o ADDED ability to use .gdl or .gendl as file extension, instead of
   .lisp. This will work with Slime-mode, cl-lite, and asdf/quicklisp.

 o ADDED surf:spiral-curve primitive (documented).

 o ADDED surf:non-rational-curve primitive (documented). 

    Note that the driver for this was the fact that it appears that
    lofted-surface will not work properly with a mixture of rational
    and non-rational profile curves, so this primitive provides a
    workaround. We will be confirming that this is indeed a limitation
    of lofted-surface. 

 o ADDED Allegro :mysql client module to this release. Requires
   installation of OpenSSL libraries on windows. 

 o FIXED bug with nested orientations in x3d lens. 

 o FIXED weight issues with rational b-spline-curve, b-spline-surface,
   boxed-curve, boxed-surface.

 o FIXED x3d display of left-handed coordinate systems (equivalent to
   patch-003 in 2012052101)

 o FIXED base-ajax-sheet to respect the specified doc-type-string. 

 

Known Bugs:
===========

 approximated-curve is still not functional in the SMLib included with
 this release. This should be resolved in the next release which has
 an SMLib update.


Other Notes:
============

 smlib::assembly-import is still available on experimental basis, not
 documented. Accepts file-name as the main input-slot. Will
 automatically choose the reader to use (step or iges) based on file
 extension (.stp, .step, .igs, or .iges).
