As a mathematics teacher using LaTeX, I needed a tool to draw geometry
diagrams in my documents. Since I didn't find anything satisfying I
decided two years ago to create Eukleides, a Euclidean geometry drawing
language. The Eukleides distribution comes with a compiler which
translates Eukleides code into PSTricks code, and a graphical frontend
named Xeukleides. It is released under GPL. Various kinds of binaries are
available: RPM, Debian, Free BSD, and soon Mac OS X.

You'll find more informations in the home page:

Eukleides is now used by people all over the world, for instance in
Japan, see:

It has been referenced by the FSF:

Last year, Dr James Foster, Membership Secretary of the UK TUG, made a
presentation about it at the annual general meeting:

Since some TeX users may be interested in Eukleides, I thought you may
want to add the Eukleides distribution to CTAN.
