This version is quite old (I think that from november 2005), anyway the way
you can use it is more or less the same. Less bugs and more features but the
same :P.

Against kmplot it has the benefit of 3D-graphs. On the other hand, I need to

You can use ** and ^ for powers.  The console is nice for using it as a
calculator (future versions will be able to simplificate). It can use
functions, load some little scripts, etc.
There is no l10n for German (there is for Portuguese, French, Catalan and
Spanish). You can translate it if you want but this version (the kde3 one)
is a bit alone. Now I'm working with the qt4 which has much more things but
hasn't any l10n yet. If you want to try it, you can compile it from svn, it
is explained in my first mail.

You can zoom out with the "-" key and the mouse wheel, in the new version
there is an option to restore the viewport. I've been told several times
about it, I'll have to change it, don't know how yet.

Thank you for your work.
