New Features
Targeted Hullform Variation

See the material under that heading in the Help file. Piecewise Linear Scaling See the material under that heading in the Help file. Contouring Unselected Objects In the preferences dialogue there is a new checkbox labeled Contour Unselected. This box is unchecked by default. If you check it, and you have at least one contourable object selected, the program contours visible but unselected objects and displays their contour curves as dotted lines. This is in addition to the solid line display of the selected object contours. If no object is selected, then the program contours all visible objects and displays the results as solid lines.
