JEuclid 2.9.6 (3.0-Beta1) released

This release has had a lot of refactoring. Many elements have moved and been renamed. All internal coordinates have been changed to use "float" instead of int. Please update your code accordingly.

The good news is that the refactoring is done, and therefore the API WILL REMAIN STABLE until 3.0. No existing public functionality will be removed! There may be some deprecations before 3.0, but this is not anticipated! It is now time to update JEuclid referencing projects, such as the FOP-Plugin.... read more
