I have a licensed copy of Eagle V7, but the latest revision I have
downloaded is 7.5. I believe my license authorizes me to obtain the
latest revision of V7. I have no interest in subscribing to V8.

How do I obtain the download for the last V7 revision?

Hi Reece,

Please visit ftp.cadsoft.de/eagle/program to download V7.7. I do
encourage you to at least play with the V8 freeware so you can see the
new features.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do for you.

Best Regards,
Jorge Garcia

Can I install V8 and does it accept the same cmd line options as V7
regarding .eaglerc file location and such? (I guess -U that was)

I usually keep a complete directory tree on a network share for each
version (V6/V7) and that is the only way not to mutually overwrite the
eagle config files when switching between versions.

Thanks, Jorge. The link worked for me. You've always been a great help.

I have no interest in V8 because the costs are prohibitive for a
hobbyist like me. Two layers isn't enough for me, and even if it were
$100 a year is far too much for someone who may use Eagle for a couple
of weeks then not at all for several months. At $500/year the Premium
version is cost-prohibitive, and forking over $65 because I want to work
on some project for a weekend is absurd.

I'm sorry to see this happen. I've been using Eagle since 2000, if not
before (4.09r2). Eagle V7 does everything I need for my current projects
and the new licensing scheme will be the push I've needed to switch to
KiCad for new projects.

Thanks Jorge. I was about to ask the same question WRT v7.7.

I too wanted to update to the latest version before subscription. As others have stated, the subscription structure is cost prohibitive for me (as a Premium owner).

Hopefully, Autodesk will adjust their strategy and restore a perpetual license option.

Thanks again.

Dave H.

Hi Markus,

EAGLE V8 accepts the same commandline options as V7 does.

Unfortunately that link no longer works.

I have to say that I am +really+ disappointed by this new change. I paid the price for the full unrestricted version of Eagle, and have always considered it a good investment. However, I +categorically will not pay+ for subscription-based software. Like buying things on credit without a clear plan of how to pay them off, it's a long slow bleed. There's also no assurance that the price won't skyrocket or that the product will be simply cancelled, leaving you with nothing and no way to access your existing designs.

CADsoft has always been good about fixing bugs in the product, and at providing reasonably priced upgrades for existing customers. The new subscription pricing is far more expensive than the cost per year of the V5->V6->V7 upgrades ever were.

I just checked and the URL for downloading the latest v7 does still work: ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/eagle/program/7.7/

The link fails now from the US.  I'm in the same position as the thread-starter except I have 7.6.0 and would like the "Last, Lonely Eagle" (v7.7).
