New features

  • Enable embedding of sketchometry in web pages as iframe. This will be explained in a separate blog post, see /news/2015/06/10/embed/index.html
  • Angles in triangles are by default inner angles (non-reflex angles)
  • Faster access to board properties (via button properties) in a dedicated toolbar
  • Introduction of a fourth mode: if drag mode and construction mode are both off, a hand symbol is shown which can be dragged around. This is a useful feature when showing and explaining a construction in class room via Apple TV or Chromecast.

Bug fixes and improvements

  • sketchometry can be used now with Chrome or Firefox on touch device running with Windows.
  • sketchometry runs in Midori
  • Better zooming behaviour
  • Saving and loading of constructions works across different window sizes
  • Cloud support of Android app
  • Reduce size of sketchometry app by factor two
  • Prevent the construction of points when dragging sliders

As always, version 1.2.0 is already available on https://sketchometry.org and on Chrome Web Store. The other app versions (iOS, Android, firefox OS) will follow soon.

Enjoy, the sketchometry team
