DGKC control was intended more like a confidence measure for .NET developers, but we have ended up with an overall nicer control.

The most important achievement is that the DGK-based application can target AnyCPU platform, so there is no need to commit early to either 32 or 64 bit.

Background and other color properties have proper .NET color type.

Context menu is the regular ContextMenuStrip .NET object of System.Windows.Forms.Control which can be manipulated directly without any DGK assistance.

The control event subsystem has been revised to make it clearer and cleaner.

PointDg, VectorDg, RangeDg, etc. classes, available in v6 via DG.cs (.vb) file, have been significantly expanded, tested and moved inside the DGKC assembly.

More shortly...

We have also added a _DG counterpart for every v5 interface. There were plenty of them, unfortunately. See what is new. So _DG interface set is much nicer now. It is self contained, more logical and overall newer and better API.

The old ones still work and are supported. No need to rush with replacing.

We have combined all required binaries into a single unified installer. So there is no need to think about bitness or platform. All controls are installed so switching from native app to .NET or between bitnesses is fine.

This is also true for the redistributable. Sizes of the installers are ridiculously small.
