GeoTools V 9.02 update:

** Enhanced commands:

GT_ANNOGRID (Civil Tools - Draw Map Grid): The GT_ANNOGRID command now
has additional options to annotate the Eastings/Northings coordinates.
In addition to having an 'E' and 'N' suffix to the coordinate values
(grid annotation), you now have the choice to use 'M' and 'P' or 'X'
and 'Y' suffix as required. The 'MP' suffix is used in parts of Europe
where 'Meridian' and 'Perpendicular' is conventionally used to denote
'Eastings' and 'Northings'. The 'XY' notation may be useful if you
want to represent the gridded area as an XY geometric grid instead of
a mapping grid.

** Bugs fixed

GT_XYZSCL (Miscellaneous Tools - Scale objects (unequally) in X, Y, Z
directions) - A bug has been fixed in this command. When 3d polylines
were scaled, the resulting scaled objects would be thrown back into
layer 0 irrespective of the layer in which they resided. This has been
fixed now. The scaled objects are now created in their respective,
original layers.

Important note: While all of GeoTools commands are tested quite
extensively before they are released, it is humanly impossible to test-
run it under every different data type or operating environment. In
the event that you notice any GeoTools command not functioning as
expected, please bring it to our notice as soon as possible. We will
attend to it and fix the problem as soon as possible.


Thank you for your continued support. As always, we welcome feedback
at all times.
