# CTAN update: tkz-elements

Date: December 4, 2023 5:02:31 PM CET

Alain Matthes submitted an update to the
tkz-elements
package.
Version: 1.40c
License: lppl1.3
Summary description: A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide
Announcement text:

Restructuring objects Added new objects: rRegular polygon, square, rectangle, parallelogram, quadrilateral. New version for all transformations. Now, they accept objects as parameters. Symmetry_axial has changed its name to reflection. Added scale to north south etc.. for point object. Change the "point method" of the objects circle and ellipse. now the parameter is a real t (between 0 and 1) and not an angle. Added "point method" for triangle object. Added the method "check_equilateral" to know if a triangle is equilateral. Added option "indirect" to the method equilateral for a line object. Correction of the documentation. (Added sections).

## tkz-elements – A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide

This package provides a library written in Lua, allowing to make all the necessary calculations to define the objects of a Euclidean geometry figure. You need to compile with LuaLaTeX. The definitions and calculations are only done with Lua.

The main possibility of programmation proposed is oriented “object programming” with object classes like point, line, triangle, circle and ellipse. For the moment, once the calculations are done, it is tkz-euclide or TikZ which allows the drawings.
