Distance and angle tool?

-I observe that without plugin support, blender doesn’t default come with
an in place edge length length adjuster. It also doesn’t have a dual
edge touching angle adjustment tool either.

-The plugin I use doesn’t select and detect the previous angle
or length either.

-Is this going to be a change for the next stable release?

-Where abouts on this linked page is a line distance or angle tool suggested?

The page Richard linked to shows the things being worked on for the next release:
If you can’t find a “distance and angle tool” mentioned, there will most likely be none soon.

-That’s partly what I’m trying to ask. Is there a “distance and angle tool” in there, since I can’t personally find one?

Isn’t such a thing pretty well a very base requirement, so to say?
