What is new in version 7.0

New Digital Geometric Kernel Control (DGKC) is a pure .NET control implemented in C# is a UserControl (System.Windows.Forms namespace) provides familiar interface for  .NET applications.

DGKC can be used in any configuration, including AnyCPU. There is no need to specify x86 or x64 platform as the build target.

There is a single unified DG Kernel installer, which supports development of .Net or native applications for any (x64 or x86) target. Redistributable binaries are also bitness-independent.

Natively implemented KerCADne.ocx (.Net) and KerCADe.ocx (C++, Deplhi, etc.) are still supported. The unified installer includes four controls for both 32 and 64 bits.

*_DG interface set introduced in v6 is completed and self-contained. There is a _DG couterpart for all v6.2 interfaces.

A number of existing interfaces have been expanded. See the table below.

Support for IKO_* interfaces, which implement OCCT-style modelling functionality has been dropped. There is a _DG analogue for each IKO* interface. All other v6_2 interfaces are supported.

The third party renderer component has been updated.

BRep faces can have per face color managed by new mehods of IBRepShape_DG.

All samples have been updated to use new interfaces.

Online documentation has been updated and improved.
