KP2->i3KGC/KPX conversions

Sunday, March 9th, 2014

Started in March and finished in July the coding on KitCAD i3 KGC rX (r5se reusing r5) as a standalone webpage that is capable of creating, opening, saving, rendering, and reporting on a plan view drawing – {First Published at the end of October 2014 with minor updates in November}. (In English: it also runs in off-line modes and runs without continued internet connection – allowing full editing and saving of files with some minor changes to user interactions). All of the rX code testing has been performed with minor updates where required; Development log | List of updates; and Instructions.
The main new feature of the rX version is the ability to be a Standalone webpage with library in-page (If supported – no library/graphics loading is needed).
