## Changelog for diagrams-lib-0.6

## 0.6: 11 December 2012

**New features**`boundingRect`

function for constructing a bounding rectangle`bg`

function for "setting the background color" (*i.e.*placing atop a colored bounding rectangle)New functions

`setDefault2DAttributes`

and`adjustDiaSize2D`

.`adjustDia2D`

does both --- so the behavior of`adjustDia2D`

has not changed, but it is now possible to apply just one of the two adjustments using the new functions.`Diagrams.TwoD.Transform`

now exports a`ScaleInv`

type for creating scale-invariant objects, which are only affected by rotational and translational components of transformations.The new

`Diagrams.Coordinates`

module provides nicer syntax for constructing and pattern-matching point and vector literals.New

`fromFixedSeg`

function in`Diagrams.Segment`

, which decomposes a`FixedSegment`

into a starting point and a`Segment`

.New

`withTrace`

function for setting the`Trace`

of a diagram.Three new size-related functions:

New

`sized`

function for scaling an object to a particular size. One particularly nice use of this is to obviate the need to keep fiddling with the line width to get diagrams to "look right"; just set the line width relative to some arbitrary scale (*e.g.*assuming the final diagram will fit into a 1x1 box) and then apply`sized`

to the final diagram to make it that given arbitrary size. It can also be used for easily making something (a diagram, path, trail, ...) the same size as something else, with the help of the new`sizeSpec2D`

function.New

`sizedAs`

function, for setting the size of some object to be "the same as" some other object.New

`sizeSpec2D`

function for conveniently calculating the size of an object as a`SizeSpec2D`

value (for use with the new`sized`

funtion).

New

`extrudeEnvelope`

and`intrudeEnvelope`

functions for modifying envelopes in a single direction only, as well as new functions`extrude{Left,Right,Bottom,Top}`

specializing`extrudeEnvelope`

to 2D.`arcCW`

draws clockwise arcs;`arc'`

draws arcs counterclockwise or clockwise as the radius is positive or negative, respectively.fill color attribute is generalized to support "recommended" and "committed" colors; text objects use a recommended fill color of black.

**New instances**The

`Show`

instance for`R2`

now produces something like`2 & 6`

instead of`R2 { unR2 = (2,6) }`

. The`Read`

instance has also been changed to match, so`read . show = id`

.`Enveloped`

instance for`FixedSegment`

`Traced`

instances for`Segment`

,`FixedSegment`

,`Trail`

, and`Path`

New derived

`Eq`

,`DashingA`

,`FillRule`

,`Font`

,`FontSize`

,`FontWeight`

, and`FontWeightA`

`Renderable Ellipsoid NullBackend`

instance

**API changes**`Data.Colour`

(minus`atop`

and`AffineSpace`

) is now re-exported from Diagrams.Prelude for convenience.The

`beneath`

function is now infixl 6.The

`BoundingBox`

module has had a complete overhaul. There is now a special empty bounding box, and bounding boxes are an instance of`Monoid`

.The type of

`withEnvelope`

has been slightly generalized.`Diagrams.TwoD.Adjust.adjustSize`

is now deprecated; it has been renamed and moved to`Diagrams.TwoD.Size.requiredScaleT`

.`expandPath`

has been renamed to`scalePath`

.

**Dependency/version changes**- Allow
`data-default`

0.4 and 0.5 - Allow
`base`

-4.6 - Allow
`containers`

-0.5

- Allow
**Bug fixes**`arc`

and`arcT`

functions now always produce counterclockwise arcs, as claimed.

## 0.5: 9 March 2012

**New features**`mkSizeSpec`

function for constructing a`SizeSpec2D`

from two`Maybe Double`

s`beneath`

as convenient synonym for`flip atop`

- Improvements and extensions to rounded rectangles by Peter Hall:
`roundedRect'`

allows rounded rectangles with a different radius specified for each corner- both
`roundedRect'`

and`roundedRect`

now allow negative radii, resulting in "inverted" circular corners

- #64: New
`Alignable`

class for things that can be aligned. `explodeTrail`

and`explodePath`

have been generalized to return any`PathLike`

type.- New path functions
`pathCentroid`

(compute the centroid of a path's vertices) and`expandPath`

(scale a path about its centroid). - Generalized
`centroid`

function now exported from new module`Diagrams.Points`

. - Initial (experimental) support for animation:
`Animation`

and`QAnimation`

defined as synonyms for`Active`

diagrams (see`active`

package)- Instances for
`Active`

:`V`

,`HasOrigin`

,`Transformable`

,`HasStyle`

,`PathLike`

,`Juxtaposable`

,`Alignable`

`animEnvelope`

and`animRect`

functions for automatic bounding of animations

`addClosingSegment`

function for making the implicit closing segment of a closed trail explicit- Improvements to
`BoundingBox`

module from Michael Sloan: querying of`BoundingBox`

bounds, corners, extents, and transformation of objects to fit within a given box. - Text alignment options from Michael Sloan
`view`

function for restricting a diagram's envelope to a rectangular region.`iterateN`

function for iterating a finite number of times`atAngle`

for placing two diagrams next to each other along a specified angle.`padX`

and`padY`

functions for padding in the X- and Y-directions independently.- generalized
`showOrigin`

function from Ian Ross - #40: add shears to
`Diagrams.TwoD.Transform`

**Performance improvements**- Use a balanced folding scheme for
`cat'`

, reducing time in some cases from \(O(n^2)\) to \(O(n \log n)\) - More efficient implementation of
`beside`

- Use a balanced folding scheme for
**New instances**`Alignable`

instances for`QDiagram`

,`Path`

,`Envelope`

,`Active`

,`Set`

,`Map`

,`[]`

`Renderable`

instances for`NullBackend`

(`Trail`

,`Path`

,`Segment`

,`Image`

,`Text`

)- Instances for
`Active`

:`V`

,`HasOrigin`

,`Transformable`

,`HasStyle`

,`PathLike`

,`Juxtaposable`

,`Alignable`

**API changes**`R2`

used to be a synonym for`(Double, Double)`

but is now abstract. To convert between pairs of`Doubles`

and`R2`

, use the new functions`r2`

and`unr2`

. There are two reasons for this change: 1. to allow for future changes to the implementation of`R2`

; 2.`(Double, Double)`

was an awkward special case getting in the way of useful tuple instances for classes like`HasOrigin`

,`Enveloped`

, and so on.`circlePath`

has been removed; its functionality has been subsumed by`circle`

.`adjustSegment`

now takes an extra tolerance option.- Ellipses are now represented using Bezier approximations rather than a separate special type.
`BoundingBox`

no longer has a`Transformable`

instance; the old instance was misleading at best.- Change semantics of
`beside`

(hence also`(|||)`

and`(===)`

) so the result's origin is the same as that of the first argument. `adjustDia2D`

now takes a`SizeSpec2D`

.`beside`

and related functions are now implemented in terms of`juxtapose`

.- Instead of taking an
`R2`

,`roundedRect`

now takes a pair of`Double`

s, to be more consistent with`rect`

.
