I notice that you have posted this four times, in different threads.
Please don't, that is considered bad style.

On another note, are you sure that a V3 version would do you any good? Do you already have a more recent version you use (hacked or "passed along" somehow) and want to legalize it? In that case, a V3 license key would most likely not work for a much more recent version.

Well I tried kicad and the GUI does not seem to be nothing like the eagle.

GUIs do not take much to learn, the Database and Dataflows are a bigger issue, but you should look into the translators there.
I expect the Eagle->KiCad choices will rapidly expand, now there is more motivation in the user base.

KiCad has good shove routing, and a nice ASCII database, so you cannot have your own data held hostage.

Really? I'm pretty sure he wouldn't want his email putting directly up on here, I suspect he'll be in a whole load of trouble if his employer sees this thread....

Thanks, I'm sure he'll appreciate you removing that swiftly :)

From one of the threads on the old EAGLE newsgroup, I seem to recall one of the concessions made by Autodesk regarding the new licensing was to make an equivalent v7 license available to v8 subscribers and add a v7 export feature into v8 to allow them to fall back on v7 if they no longer had a v8 subscription. I don't think any of that has been put in place yet but once it has then it will give a way to get a new v7 license again.

That's because the Kicad developers have a suggestion that goes along the lines of: "If there is a question about how to implement a feature, look at how the leading Maker favorite package does it, and do the opposite."

Anyone want to make a bet as to whether that will actually happen?   :box: :-DD

I've view these video from eapbg youtube channel here : http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoiRasgoC8yP6j5P28C9c4A
it's all about the differences between kicad and eagle, and it's worth viewing.
I was sceptical about kicad; but after these tutorials, everything became clear and I made a small board in a short time.
I'm a mac user and eagle user interface always was a battle for me.
Kicad has also a lot to improve on the user interface, but it's still really usable, you can have the freerouter build inside, it's very easy after.

Sounds more PR spin than Engineering to me... and reinforces their flawed 'user data as hostage' mindset, that I am sure will bite them big time.
Of course, it will never quite work 100%, will it ?

Subscription in the historic & common usage, was a means to get new copies of something, with no means to prevent you from using the ones you already had on the shelf.

Seems what Autodesk offer is nothing like a 'subscription' at all, in the true meaning,  but is more similar to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extortion

I don't think you can buy a legally licensed commercial version of Eagle anymore, because licenses are to a specific organization or individual (the name is embedded in the license that was sent to you).

KiCad has good shove routing, and a nice ASCII database, so you cannot have your own data held hostage.

Eagle documents and libraries have been simple ASCII files formatted in XML for quite some time now. Not sure about v8, but v6 and v7 use the XML format, and it's helpful. If you can't do something using the software, then the XML could be edited directly. I've used GNU Emacs to edit the XML files, and it makes certain tasks a lot easier than using the actual Eagle software.

So, this is not a differentiating feature of KiCad - Eagle does this too.

I still have the 7.7 hobbyist license, but have already gone Kicad and have not looked back.

Sadly once you try a professional software, you can't go back to kicad or eagle...

Seeking out an older version of Eagle is only going to prolong the pain. It's better to rip the bandaid off quickly IMHO and just transition to KiCad now, otherwise you'll have to do it sooner or later unless you want to go with software rental. I tried Eagle years ago along with every other EDA I could get my hands on before settling on KiCad and found that the transition was not all that hard. Once you know how to design a PCB, learning the GUI is easy.
