I've been using the cvs-version lately since there are some features which
are neccessary for data representation and while doing so I found some
issues which I like to articulate here so that there's a chance they will be
introduced (or that someone will tell me what I'm doing wrong):
This mainly concerns the new 'object' styles 'ellipse' and 'circle':
For some plots we need circular guides in a otherwise cartesian plot. They
should be centered at the x-axis and simply draw an arc (0:180) and, of
course, should be circular with respect to the plot coordinate system.
After some confusion I can in some sense understand why a 'circle' will be a
circle on the print rather than on the plot however, I would have found it
more intuitive to have a switch to change this behavior. Nevertheless, the
'ellipse' - of which I thought would be the solution - seems to be an
entierly different animal. It lacks an 'arc' specifier as well as I haven't
been able to display the actual ellipse with a line rather than the area.
So I would like to emphasize that with the given direction the 'circle'
object is taking the, 'ellipse' should at least have the possibility of
arcing and border display. However, maybe my point is convincing to decide
via an option whether the 'circle' acts as a circle with respect to the
print or with respect to the coordinate system of the plot.
Much regards and keep up the tremendous work!!!
p.s. i should add that - for now - the above relates to the x11 terminal
