As there have been announcements about Eagle 7.0 coming soon, I was
wondering if there is any beta available?

As I've recently been using 6.5 on a Microsoft Surface Pro I was also
wondering if there is any better support for touchscreens/pens in
Windows 8 or high DPI screens. (Those tiny buttons are really hard to
use!)

Hi Fred,

I apologize for the previous message, I clicked send without meaning to.
There's no public beta of V7 available yet but we will announce it once
it is available.

I can however inform you that there are no improvements in touch screens
and tablet type device support.

hth,
Jorge Garcia

Thanks for the quick reply, Jorge. I look forward to the beta when it's
ready.

A shame there's no tablet / touchscreen support. I suppose it's not
popular enough (yet) though. It's actually quite nice to draw your
traces with a pen rather than a mouse. Eagle 6.5 does work OK, it's just
that a few simple things like pinch zooming and scrolling would be
really nice.

The tiny buttons when using a high DPI screen might affect more of your
user base though. I'd have though an option to increase the button size
wouldn't be hard to add.

It looks like the public beta of Eagle 7 (oddly versioned 6.91.1) is now
available for download
