There are not many changes or improvements in this version of Ipe, but I 
want to get it out in the hope that it can solve the problem that some 
users with European locales are having, where files can potentially get 

(The issue is that on some systems the locale setting, which uses a 
comma instead of a decimal point, reasserts itself inside Ipe and causes 
it to incorrectly read decimal numbers from Ipe files.)

See https://sourceforge.net/p/ipe7/tickets/11/.



Ipe 7.1.6 (2014-12-05)

  * Fixed crash when input file contains zero-radius arc (bug #1).

  * Added missing "qhull.dll" (bug #3).

  * IPESTYLES and IPELETPATH now use semicolon as separator on Windows
    and colon on Unix (bug #4).

  * New arrow styles "ptarc" and "fptarc" for pointed arrows on
    circular arcs (feature #19).

  * Using a separate locale for number conversion, hopefully fixing the
    problems Ipe users on European locales with a comma for the decimal
    separator were having (bug #11).

  * Option "Pretty display" to avoid drawing the green bounding box for
    text objects, so that one can see what the drawing really looks
    like (feature #13).

  * Fixed snapping to negative grid coordinates (bug #9).

  * Preference prefs.editable_textfile to set the name of the text file
    to be written for editing in an external text editor.
