Octagon in a Square

An octagon is constructed within a square by joining each vertex of the square to the midpoints of the two sides remote from that vertex. Eight line segments are thus drawn within the square, creating an octagon (shown shaded). The following two questions had been posed: (i) Is the octagon regular? (ii) What is the ratio of the area of the octagon to that of the square?
