KLO 0.92a

KLO 0.92 alpha is now online at klo-software.net:
  • Bands can be drawn with knots (this is not new) to represent surfaces in 4-space; band-slides and band-swims for these diagrams have now been implemented:
    • To perform a band-slide, drag the end of the band to slide to an adjacent end from a different band.
    • To perform a band-swim, drag the end of the band to be swum along to an edge for a different band on the same face (note that this is effectively the opposite of the band-swim being done; starting with the band-end makes the interfacing simpler).
  • When constructing a new knot, a new checkbox now exists to specify a braid to close; selecting this opens up a dialog in which the number of strands and the braid can be entered (braid generators are a, b, c, ... from the top, with the inverses given by A, B, C, ...).  The braid is visually previewed as you enter it.
