I am planning to do some algebra support (it has begun in fact, I can do
some simplifications and so), I am not planning to use anything else.

What surplus/differences do you see against KMplot?

I have the console and 3D, support for functions. I've used kmplot, I think
its 2D graph widget is better than mine and they have some options like
integration and differenciation that I don't have.

Do you know of unignuplot, kmatplot or graphcalc? Do you seen any sense

I don't know where the merge could benefit us, but could be a possibility, I
don't know.

Do you know of GeoGebra? I believe that its approach is the widest and

I didn't know this project. Screenshots are very nice, I'll try it out when
I'm at home. Anyway, I think it is out of my scope, KAlgebra is much

Kind regards
