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

Please see


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

The changes since the previous version are:

- Fixed highlighting of ports connected to the SHOWn bus.
- Avoiding junctions on ports with busses.
- Avoiding placement of port on port.
- Fix for crash on Windows when restarting PRINT command after deinstallation
of a printer previously used.
- Added input line for prefix in module creation dialog.
- Extended syntax for the module command to provide 'prefix*'.
- Avoiding autoconnecting incompatible ports to busses or nets if moving
module instances.
- Properties dialog for module instances: The combobox for offset is only shown
for module instances where offset is supported (on schematic main level) and
only the (still) available values are offered.
- COPY, PASTE, Import of schematic drawing (PASTE from file): If a net from a
bus is copied together with its bus, the copied net segments keep their name
in order to match to the bus.
- Import of schematic drawing (PASTE from file): Names of implicitely created
signals with unconnected power pin(s) are not changed in order to avoid an
- COPY/PASTE from package editor to board editor or from symbol editor to
schematic editor: avoiding creation of illegal wires or polygons in
signal, net or bus layer.
- Fixed possible inconsistency after renaming of nets connected to a port.
- Fix for display of HTML descriptions of device and package in Control Panel.
- Restriction of CHANGE PACKAGE/TECHNOLOGY in the board to non hierarchical
elements (same like VALUE).
- Autorouter: fix of possible crash in Routing Variants Dialog when deleting
- Update of V5 drawings: replacement of invalid character 'no break space' in
gate, pin and other names.
- Import of schematic drawing (PASTE from file): In the net renaming dialog
nets from a bus or with implicit power pin(s) are no longer changeable and
indicated with icons and tooltip.
- Fix for proper takeover of netclasses if pasting from a module.
- Avoiding removal of a netclass which is only used in a module.
- Import of hierarchical schematic drawing (PASTE from file): fix for erroneous
duplication of identical modules.
- Avoiding of inconsistency after deleting bus type ports which are connected.
- Added ERC warnings for nets/busses which are overlapping with ports.
- EXPORT image monochrome: holes (from pads, vias and hole objects) are kept
free from copper.
- Added autoconnection of ports if placing copied module instances.

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