Improved Polygon Capture plugin makes QGIS Digitizing easier

A new plugin showed up in the QGIS 2.0 repository recently, Improved Polygon Capture allows you to specify a line segment’s length and/or angle as you digitize a polygon.  The plugin is easy to use, when you start an edit session with a polygon layer it puts a dialog box below your table of contents window.  It has two fields, one for angle and another for distance with a checkbox for each.  When you enter a value and check the box that value is locked in and the line segment you create will match those values.  The length field’s units will be in your project’s projection’s units.
