Re: Re: v. 6, third argument to rectangle


Andrzej,
thats on purpose because this particular functionality of Rectange is 
replaced with the new primitive Inset[] . Therefore Rectange[{a, a}, {a, a}, 
graphics] is obsolete but it still works because of backward compatibility.

In new applications, we should use Inset[].

Greetings,
Drago
