A new version of EAGLE is now available for download at


This version is mainly a bugfix release to adress the CAM processor problem with polygons
that appeared in 6.0.0 and a number of other important issues.

The changes since the previous version 6.0.0 are:

* DIMENSION command:

- Added a note about the settings for dimension objects to the online help of
the DIMENSION command.

* Miscellaneous:

- The new option "Legacy mouse wheel mode" in "Options/User interface" can be
activated under Mac OS X to switch back to the mouse wheel handling as it
was in version 5.
- Online help for SCRIPT command: Add a section about script labels.

* Bugfixes:

- Fixed a missing screen update after updating a symbol in a schematic
drawing, where the new version of the symbol extends outside the
surrounding rectangle of the entire drawing.
- Fix for tweaking off polygon orphans in CAM processor output with
positive coordinates.
- Correct support for new members "headline" and "description" of ULP types
- Fixed subtracting texts with vector font from polygons if placed in packages.
- Fixed changing the font of texts if the drawing has set 'Always Vector Font'.
- Fixed handling attributes with empty names in elements when updating a
board from before version 6.0 (they will be silently ignored).
- Fixed subtracting texts with vector font from polygons in CAM processor output.
- Fixed erroneously checking polygons with rank 6 and polygons with a smaller rank
in the DRC.
- Fixed jumping initial airwire position when routing in special cases.
- Fixed a crash in the ROUTE command when routing a track that provokes
an immediate optimize.
- Fixed a crash in the Control Panel's tree view when renaming an item, and
the new name already exists.
- ADD command: Ensure proper initialization of part values if the device has the attribute
'VALUE' set or the eaglerc switch Sch.Cmd.Add.AlwaysUseDeviceNameAsValue is set.
- Fixed a crash in the RIPUP command if used in a non-board drawing.
- Fixed automatic generation of part names in project context: The names of elements
without a corresponding part were not taken into account.
- Paste from file: If nets/signals from paste buffer are connected to an existing
net/signal, update netclasses of paste buffer nets/signals accordingly.
Warn the user before in case of changes.
- Fixed a crash if deleting a group containing a net wire and a junction
in special constellation.
- Smashed Elements/Instances: Ensure load of drawing in case of multiple identical
placeholder texts like NAME or VALUE.
- Fixed drawing of polygons of mirrored elements with the CAM Processor
(use mirrored layer if applicable).
- Fixed a possible crash if opening a library panel tree containing
a library that would imply an update report.
