Changes in version 3.1:

Made to work with beta, no longer alpha, releases of XForms.
XForms comes from T. C. Zhao and Mark Overmars; see INSTALLATION.
Now independent of SGI and of VOGL library.

Selection (with right mouse) and editing works everywhere -- no longer
GL-specific.  Cleaner, less modal interaction -- select and delete segments
in any mode.  Keyboard shortcuts for common operations.
"Save as Postscript" option.

Changes in version 3.0:

Ported to X Windows.  Only SGI version has line editing.

Support for frieze groups, grids, and printing directly from kali

Changes in version 2.1:

Use most recent Conway notation: "o" means handle, "x" means crosscap.
Start up with simplest (o/p1) not most complex (*632/p6m) group.

Changes in version 2.0:

Lines can now be moved as well as deleted.

A new user interface with an info panel, icons and Conway notation
besides crystallographic notation for each of the 17 groups.  The new
user interface was built using the public domain Forms Library by Mark
Overmars of the University of Utrecht, which is available via
anonymous ftp at
