A new beta version of EAGLE is now available for download.

Please see

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

for details about how to get, install and use it.

The changes since the previous version are:

- Fix for loss of attributes of devicesets without package after switching
between devicesets in library editor.
- Avoiding corrupt device if created by drag&drop of another package from
Control Panel to a deviceset in library editor if the package variant is
named with '' (empty name).
- Fix for proper support of drag&drop of a package from Control Panel to a
deviceset in library editor on Linux and MAC.
- Attributes of devicesets without package are no longer getting lost if a
package variant is created.
- Help for port command: improved explaination for port selection and movement.
- Made eaglecon.exe for CAM batch processing work again.
- Support of userdefined context menu entries for module instances.
- Added a member 'module' to UL_PART.
- Added translation of the GUI to Russian (help and manual are not included).
- Support of renaming of polygons from/to hierarchical names with NAME command.
- Added a member 'modulepart' to UL_PART for accessing the (real) part from
module in case of a virtual part.
- Netclass dialog: fix for default dialog sizes in extended/unextended state.
- Added an entry 'Open in Library' to package and device context menus in
Control Panel.
- Added available busses to selection list of PORT command.
- Fix for name generation in VIA command to avoid names already used in schematic
for nets without signal counterpart.
- Fix for handling of a group after setting it with setgroup() in a ULP.
(E.g. moving signals or nets of the group didn't work.)
- Ensure highlighting of a selected port and the display of its info string.
- Allow renaming a port in the properties dialog.
- Ensuring that radius of a circle does not exceed its limit.
- Correct handling of single quotes if doubled in 'SET CONTEXT' commands.
- Implemented eaglerc switch Warning.Cam.DrillsAndHolesConcurrent to allow (with
value '0') skipping the CAM Processor warning about concurrent output of drills
and holes.
- Speeded up RATSNEST for boards containing many contactrefs with route value 'any'.
- Ignoring right mouse button; port rotation is chosen automatically.
- Added object UL_ERROR to User Language to access ERC/DRC errors.
- Increased distance of port name to module frame.
- Re-added missing direction of pins in the parameter toolbar.
- Added driver 'EXCELLON_25' with coordinate format 2.5 inch for CAM output
to eagle.def.
- The SET command can now configure the popup menus for values of Dline_* by
setting the Dline_Width_Menu, Dline_Ext_Width_Menu, Dline_Ext_Length_Menu
and Dline_Ext_Offset_Menu arrays.
- Fixed handling '>GATE' in device context as in EAGLE versions prior to V6.
- Added ULP member UL_PART.modulepath to get the path of module instances
corresponding to a virtual part.
- Made change of netclass for a group selection of nets work again.
- Changed interactive behavior of the PORT command (like e.g. PIN).
- The 'General' parameter tab was added again to the dialog for the Follow-me
router.
- Ensuring that always at least one technology exists for a device in the
device editor.
- Fixed autoconnecting ports to busses if moving module instances.

In order to enable you to test the advanced features of
this new version, like PASTE from a file with multiple
sheets, there is a limited time Professional license file
contained in bin/betatest.key of your EAGLE installation
directory. The Installation Code is listed inside that file.


A detailed description of all changes can be found in the files
UPDATE and HISTORY.beta that come with the betatest archive.

Please do not post problem reports as a reply to _this_ message!!
Start a new thread with a descriptive subject for each report (this
makes handling these reports a lot easier for us).

If possible, please post in ENGLISH rather than German to allow

Sorry, this was a mistake ! It's not included int this beta version.
We do this only for beta versions for new major versions.
You may use your existing V7 license or test with freeware or
freetrial (Fremium) license.
