It’s been a while since I have written about GeoGebra, but I have started updating some of the tutorials to GeoGebra 5. For those who have not explored the Archives, I have written numerous GeoGebra tutorials ranging from basics to advanced.
GeoGebra is now version 5.0. New features were added and a lot of improvements had been made. The 3D is now stable and 4 new tools were added. The Insert Image tool now support SVG files. But aside from these, there are simple updates which I really like and I think teachers will also love them. Here are four of them.

To all GeoGebra fans out there, the GeoGebra 5.0 Beta release is now available. The most prominent feature of GeoGebra 5.0 is its 3d environment.
You can download the webstart version here and the portable version here. If you find any bug, you are welcome to report it in the GeoGebra 5 Beta Forum.
Erratum: The versions above are JOGL2 test version (will be removed soon). The correct link for version 5 is here.
GeoGebra Prim is a variant of GeoGebra for primary school and middle school students that will soon be released (probably with GeoGebra 4.0). It is a more simplified version of GeoGebra:
- Restricted set of Tools available
- All available Tools visible at once
- Larger Font size
- Larger/ Thicker Objects
- Just the Graphics View Showing
- Easier to select objects
- Labeling of Objects disabled (by default)
- Angles always between 0 and 180 (by default)
- Rounding to nearest whole number (by default)
The beta version of GeoGebra Prim can be downloaded here.
