A new beta-release of Ipe 7 is now available from the Ipe homepage
http://ipe7.sourceforge.net.  My apologies for the bug that stopped you 
from saving new documents in 7.0.3 :-(

If you already downloaded ipe-7.0.4-src.tar.gz and the file 
"styles/presentation.isy" is missing, just download the package again.

If this is your first encounter with Ipe 7, please read the chapter in 
the manual about moving from Ipe 6 to Ipe 7. It is also available on-line at


Bug reports should be filed either on the SourceForge bug tracker 
(convenient if you already have a SourceForge account) or on the classic 
Ipe Bugzilla.



Ipe 7.0.4 (2009-10-14) SVN 335

  * Fixed bug in save_as (bug #305).

  * ipe6upgrade: fixed empty dash.

  * Fixed handling of matrix in path join.

  * Added "arc" and "farc" arrow types.  When the final segment of a
    path is circular arc, then these arrows take on a shape that
    depends on the radius of the arc, as metafont arrows do.

  * Fixed handling of path objects with missing stroke and fill

  * Added "presentation.isy" to styles directory.  You can now create a
    new presentation by saying "ipe -sheet presentation".

  * Fixed computation of bounding box of transformed text object.

  * Fixed handling of horizontal and vertical alignment and
    transformable text from Properties menu.
