OpenSCAD 2010.01 released

Clifford Wolf
Hi,

I've just released OpenSCAD 2010.01. The source package and the linux x86
binaries can be downloaded from openscad.org. I'd guess binaries for
windows and macos will follow soon.

Quick summary of changes in this release:

 o Added functions and statements
  - Added intersection_for()
  - Added str function
  - Added min and max function
  - Added color() statement
 o Added 2D Subsystem
  - New primitives: circle(), square() and polygon()
  - 2D->3D path: linear_extrude() and rotate_extrude()
  - Import of DXF to 2d subsystem: import_dxf()
  - Export of 2D data as DXF files
 o Some bugs fixed, maybe some new bugs added to

yours,
 - clifford

Oooh! Does color() get written out to STL?  Shapeways just added full  
color printing to their options.

atm this is only used in the OpenCSG and Thown Together display modes.

there are two problems with colors in STL: 1. I don't know how to pass this
kind of metadata thru CGAL and 2. I did some research on the web but did
not find any satisfying documentation of colors in STL. It seams like
everyone is doing his or her own extensions to STL to add color to the file
format..

It is easier to change the specification to fit the program than vice versa.

Yeah, I looked at it more closely and discovered the same thing.

One import/export format that may be of use is Collada.  That will get  
people hooks into Google's SketchUp and Blender via plug-in.  It's  
also XML-based so you may be able to use QT's native XML processing to  
read and write it.

...and there's also QtSvg which could be handy for 2D import/export.

So many features; so little time. ;-)
