The program adds support of alpha-channel, which allows applying
transparency to any object, line, filling, shadows or texts. Moreover, each
object may have its own colour palette. There were also extended operations

to use pixels as document dimensions and improved possibility to use feet
and inches as object’s dimensions. The program features extended
