I don't know when we got this new feature, but it sure is great! GTV's (now) save the cursor angle, so if you have a plan, for instance, that has part of it angled, use the Tangents to tilt the cursor to the angle of that part, and save a new GTV for that part of the plan!

Whenever you need to work on that angled part, just open that GTV and the cursor will be at the correct angle. When you go back to the regular orthogonal part of the plan, open that GTV and the cursor is back to normal.

This is the bee's knees! You no longer have to have an additional set of layers (with the grid angled). Or, you no longer need to repeatedly use B to select a reference line to tilt the cursor.
