A new version of EAGLE is now available for download at

http://www.cadsoft.de/download.htm

The changes since the previous version are:

* User Language, DesignLink:

- The User Language dialog object dlgStringEdit now accepts additional
parameters to implement an input history.
- The User Language function system() no longer prompts the user for
confirmation before executing the command.
- Modified the User Language network functions so that they use the proxy
as set up in "Help/Check for Update/Config".
- DesignLink enhancements: Check price & availability for all parts of a schematic,
load a shopping cart (designlink-order.ulp and designlink-inc.ulp,
replacing designlink.ulp).
- DesignLink: Removed the "Customer Details" dialog as the user administration
is not in service on Element14 web page.
- DesignLink: Added a text export function to order list (designlink-order.ulp)
and library tool (designlink-lbr.ulp).
- Added a PCB quote service as ULP (pcb-service.ulp), that can extract manufacturing
parameters from the board and send to an Element14 site to get a quote for it.

* CHANGE command:

- The CHANGE command no longer selects airwires when changing parameters
that don't apply to airwires (like layer or width).

* EXPORT command:

- Reduced the minimum resolution in the EXPORT IMAGE command to 1.

* MENU command:

- The MENU command can now handle icons.
- The MENU command now automatically turns on the textual command menu.
- By default the textual command menu is now located right next to the
action toolbar.
- The default eagle.scr file now contains MENU commands that configure
the textual command menu with buttons for DesignLink and the new
PCB service.

* SET command:

- The new SET variable CONFIRM can be used to automatically confirm message
dialogs (see "Help/Editor Commands/SET/Automatic Confirmation").

* Miscellaneous:

- If the user has modified the widths of the columns in a dlgListView, they
no longer fall back to their initial values when a different item is
selected.
- The new command line option '-U' can be used to define the location
of the 'eaglerc' file in which EAGLE stores user settings.
Note that beta versions of EAGLE no longer store their user settings
in a separate 'eaglerc' file with the extension '.beta'. They now use
the same 'eaglerc' file as officially released versions. If you want
to keep things separate for beta versions, use the '-U' option.
- The new SET parameter Option.AutoLoadMatchingDrawingFile can be used
to suppress the query "Do you also want to load ...?" in the EDIT command.
- The new SET parameters Cmd.Name.RenameEntireNetByDefault and
Cmd.Name.RenameEntireSignalByDefault can be used to control the default
behavior of the NAME command.
- Support relative paths of image links in libraries in ADD and REPLACE dialog.

* Bugfixes:

- Fixed the layer sequence in the PRINT dialog's preview in case the
output is mirrored.
- When opening an existing project, windows that were minimized when the
project was closed, and were previously maximized, will now behave
correctly when clicking on their taskbar entry.
- Fixed a crash when executing a script file with several "edit ...; close;"
sequences in the same line.
- Fixed wrongfully trying to open the device links in the Control Panel as
external hyperlinks when resizing the Control Panel.
- Fixed showing an invoked gate in the INVOKE dialog.
- Fixed canceling a GROUP/MOVE between sheets.
- Fixed handling frames in the EXPORT SCRIPT command.
- Fixed exporting partlists with the EXPORT command in case the part value
contains "%1".
- Fixed handling external hyperlinks in the ADD dialog.
- Under Linux the runtime libraries libssl and libcrypto are now linked
statically to the executable file, because on some systems the
required version of these files was not available.
- Fixed converting lowercase to uppercase characters when renaming a
package variant via the dialog.
- Fixed alfanumeric sorting of strings.
- Fixed setting the sort order in the INVOKE dialog.
- Fixed recognizing a CAM job as "modified" if only the name of a job section
has been modified.
- Fixed the values of UL_VIA.diameter and UL_VIA.shape for supply layers
in which the via is connected, in case the Design Rules parameter
"Supply/Generate thermals for vias" is turned off.
- Fixed limiting stored dialog sizes to smaller desktops.
- Fixed handling leading or trailing blanks when the user enters a
Freemium code.
- Fixed missing spaces after '-' between <nobr> tags.
- The User Language function ingroup() now checks whether there is actually
a group defined.
- Export library as script: Handle single quotes correctly when used
within attribute values.
- Fixed displaying the large crosshair cursor at the current mouse
position when turning it on.
- Fixed retrieving the parameters of the PRINT dialog from the eaglerc
settings, so that cfgset() can properly set them.
- Fixed handling UL_HOLE.diameter[], UL_PAD.diameter[], UL_PAD.shape[],
UL_VIA.diameter[] and UL_VIA.shape[] in case the board contains supply
layers that are not visible when the ULP runs.
- Avoid erroneous change of width of ULP comboboxes.
- Fix performance issue with big schematics with many device attributes.
- Fix asymmetric alignment of texts in xref labels with frame.
- Fixed: New attributes defined in schematic did not get current
rotation of element when propagated to board.
- Fixed crash when moving Thunderbird email files across EAGLE windows
by drag&drop.
- Use actual wire width for line creation in layer 'unrouted', not zero.
- Suppress hidden airwires in group selection.
- Fixed a missing cell padding in the Technologies/Attributes display of
the library editor under Windows.
- Fixed point-in-polygon algorithm for group selection by polygon.
- Enable display of web based images in various description fields
and HTML editor.
- Fixed crash when doing a show on a part instance from other than
current sheet.
- Improved performance of DRC with selected area.
- Fixed distortion in printing of mirrored circles.
- Bugfix: Make GROUP on signals excluded with RATSNEST work again.

Is it possible to always include the list of bugfixes on the CadSoft website like in this post instead of having to first install the new version and read the UPDATE.txt?
I think the bugfixes are a very important information to be included in the "What's new in version xxxx?"

The list of bugfixes is contained in the announce message here
in the newsgroup. On our web page we don't really like to
advertise a list of bugs (albeit fixed ones) ;-)

If you can download the install package, try opening it with winrar or
winzip and look in the \doc\ folder. You can open individual files directly
(ie UPDATE-en.txt). I prefer winrar.
