Summary description: A Lua library for drawing Euclidean geometry with TikZ or tkz-euclide
Announcement text:

- version 1.82c - Point object : name like z.App now gives a node with name A'' - Modification of methods north,south - Added the function length(z.A,z.B) shortcut for point.abs(z.A-z.B). - Line object added some methods - Added method in_out_segment - (sacred triangle) - gold - sublime or euclide - cheops - divine - pythagoras or isis or egyptian - golden - (classic triangles) - two_angles (side between) - sss (three sides) - ssa (two sides and an angle) - sas (an angle between two sides) - school (30°, 60° and 90°) - half right triangle in A with AB= 2AC - Circle object - added method common_tangent (gives the common tangents of two circles) - Correction for a bug and an oversight in the circles_position method. - Rewriting the radical_axis methods - Triangle object - method trilinear (to use trilinear coordinates) - method barycentric (to use barycentric coordinates) - Added some functions (not methods) - bisector (a,b,c) altitude (a,b,c) bisector_ext(a,b,c) equilateral (a,b) midpoint (a,b) to avoid creating unnecessary objects. - Added new examples and a cheat sheet in the documentation - Added on altermundus.fr a new version of Sangakus developed with tkz-elements

## 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.
