CTAN update: tkz-euclide

Date: January 5, 2022 8:52:40 PM CET
Alain Matthes submitted an update to the tkz-euclide package. Version number: 4.00b License type: lppl1.3 Summary description: Tools for drawing Euclidean geometry Announcement text:
The version 4 of tkz-euclide is important because the package becomes an independent tool from my old packages, in particular tkz-base. A version of tkz-base v 4 is required to use both packages. It is intended mainly to create Euclidean geometry figures. In the codes and in the documentation, I have put forward my rule : set, calculate, draw and fill ,mark and label. Some new macros have appeared, others (secondary) have disappeared. The only important constraint to transfer the code from version 3 to 4 is to remove the unit "cm". Now the bounding box is controlled; in most cases it is not necessary to use the tkzInit and tkzClip macros. Some changes have been made to make the syntax more homogeneous and especially to distinguish the definition and search for coordinates from the rest, i.e. drawing, marking and labelling. The introduction of new macros to manage styles is a new step. Next step ... In the future, the definition macros being isolated, it will be easier to introduce a phase of coordinate calculations using Lua. I’m sorry but the list of changes and novelties is made in the greatest disorder! This version must be considered as beta because I worked alone.

tkz-euclide – Tools for drawing Euclidean geometry

The tkz-euclide package is a set of files designed to give math teachers and students easy access to the programming of Euclidean geometry with TikZ.
