    • modeling: jscad-modeling.min.js, UMD library exporting 'jscadModeling'
    • web: jscad-web.min.js, UMD library exporting 'jscadWeb'
    • regl-renderer: jscad-regl-renderer.min.js, UMD library exporting 'jscadReglRenderer'

    For more information see the README file for the packages.

    New Features:
    all: standardize package contents, improving published packages
    core: added build script and configuration for publishing

    Bug Fixes:

    io-utils: split out Blob and converted to ES5 class, added test suite
    io-utils: converted BinaryReader to ES5 class
    modeling: corrected extrudeWalls to ignore invalid polygons(walls) which occurs if slices overlap
    modeling: corrected slice creation for negative (-x) biased shapes

    regl-renderer: corrected entitiesFromSolids to use transforms from geometries

    BIG NOTE: The V2 website is also using this release.

    There's on-line documentation as well for those needing additional information about the modeling API.

    For those using a local copy of JSCAD V2, be sure to run the following commands.

    git pull
    npm run clean (and answer Y)
    npm run bootstrap

    Both CLI and WEB UI are usable for creating designs. In the WEB UI, it's best to drag-n-drop project folders to the window, and work with the pieces via a favorite editor. If "Enable auto reload" is checked then changes will be detected, and rendered again.

    For those wanting to get hold of JSCAD V2, it's still in 'early adoption' mode. But you can get started here.

    And a BIG THANKS for everyone that has provided feedback. Keep those comments coming!
