Kig is a program created for exploring geometric constructions.
Kig is free software, as in "free speech". This basically means that you do not have to ask the author's permission to use it, to improve it, to distribute or even to sell it. The only thing that you are required to do is to pass on these rights if you distribute Kig.
Kig is meant as a useful and powerful utility for high school students and teachers, and as a fun project for the development team.
What's New in This Release:
· Improved property system that now support cases like the dynamical change of object (eg: when using a Python script) maintaining the same property
· New object: Numeric Label. This is a particular label that can hold only a number
· Adapted many costructions to get the numeric value also from a numeric label
· New object: Point by Numeric Labels (as coordinates)
· Extended the Python interface to return a Numeric Label in case of a numeric value calculated by a script
· Now Kig is able to read (partially) the files of Cabri v1.2, and the compatibility with Cabri v1.0 is slightly improved too
· Thanks to the Numeric Label, now the Dr.Geo and KSeg input filters can import a bit more objects
· The XFig exporter can export polygons
· The user can freely choose the font of text and numeric labels
· New object: Conic arc by Center and Three Points
· New object: Conic arc by Five Points
· New object: Vertical Cubic by Four Points
· Basic support for polygons in the Python interface
· New test: object existance
