GDS2 (chip layout) viewer for the chip design engineer.
The main objective was to focus on the basic functionality but adding some
useful features that many, even commercial viewers don't have:
* shows the design as it is
* can animate layers to make them blink or scroll the fill pattern.
* display a layer "marked" by drawing a small cross on all shapes<
All comes wrapped in a nice, Qt based state of the art GUI. Usage of the viewer
is simple and is similar to that of other tools.

- Update to 0.24.9
* Enhancements: The RBA::Region#smooth function was enhanced to
give somewhat better results
* Enhancements: DXF's circle approximation can now also specified
through an "accuracy" parameter: if less than the number of
specified points is required to achieve the given accuracy, the
number is reduced accordingly. This also applies to the polygon
interpolation of spline and arc curves.
* Enhancement: RBA integration now is compatible with Ruby 2.3
which allows building on Ubuntu 16 as well.
* Enhancement: OASIS files with instance angles >360 were rejected
before. Now, this has turned into a warning.
* Bugfix: DEF reader was failing to read MASK/via combinations.
* Bugfix: The marker browser's "show only rules with errors" option
was enabled again on sorting of errors.
* Bugfix: Using Layout objects for inputs didn't work
* Bugfix: Copying Hierarchy treets containing PCell's made the
PCell's being turned into static cells.

- Update to 0.24.8
* Bugfix: XOR and different or big database units:
With tiling, XOR between two layouts with different database
units was still not working correctly. Also, when the database unit
was larger than 1nm, the XOR feature was dropping results sometimes
when tiling was on.
* Enhancements: progress bar shown also for "-z" mode scripts:
The solution of 0.24.7 has been modified to avoid annoying
progress bar windows popping up in background-window mode:
Now, progress bar windows will only pop up if an active main
window is present. This will enable progress bars for scripts that
open their own main windows but still keep the application GUI-less
when the script does not do so.
* Bugfix: Crash on empty panel:
When "New/Panel" is used a view without a layout is created.
An attempt to create layout on such panels crashed the application.
* Bugfix: LEF reader now can read PIN statements including VIA
* Bugfix: Polygon smoothing was not working properly in some cases
Previously the smoothing function was sometimes dropping vertexes
from the polygons.
Smoothing now does also guarantee not to exceed the given
* Bugfix: Sorting cells by area now sorts cells by name as second choice
In the previous version, cells with identical area were
grouped but the order was arbitrary. Now the name is used as
the second-level sorting criterion which keeps such cells
sorted by name.

- Update to 0.24.7
* Bugfix: XOR and different database units:
With tiling, XOR between two layouts with different database
units was not working correctly.
* Enhancements: progress bar shown also for "-z" mode scripts:
Scripts running in KLayout with the "-z" option (don't
show main window) were not experiencing progress reporting
before. Now a small modal window is shown during long-running
operations that indicates the progress and provides a Cancel
button to abort the operation.
* Bugfix: Crash on using "Edit/Make cell":
This happened sometimes if the selected objects contained
* Bugfix: Invalid behavior of paths with reflecting segments:
For example a path made of the points (0, 0), (0, 1000)
and (0, 0) had a reflecting segment which cause some
computations (for example the bounding box) to return
invalid results.
