KiCAD status/roadmap and other FOSDEM talks
« on: February 09, 2017, 03:47:34 AM »
A video recording of Wayne's presentation about KiCAD status and roadmap is up already.

More and more recordings of the other FOSS EDA talks are appearing as well (including my two) and can be accessed from the devroom schedule.

No v6 roadmap or stable release 5 available or even mentioned on the site. What am I missing?

This might be the most uptodate roadmap:
http://ci.kicad-pcb.org/job/kicad-doxygen/ws/Documentation/doxygen/html/v5_road_map.html
but there's also a similar page on ohwr (maybe those are CERN-specific focus areas):
http://www.ohwr.org/projects/cern-kicad/wiki/workpackages

the 5.0 schedule is more or less unknown, a few months maybe, ask again in the summer ;)

Love the cheering reaction from the crowd after announcing the "spread footprints on first load of netlist" feature :D.

He mentioned in the video that stable release 5 is available for download and the roadmap for version 6 in on the site. Neither are true. Stable release 4 is available and the roadmap for version 5 in on the site.

AFAIR he said that the test version of 5.0 will be out soon. And the final sometime in the summer then he quickly added you know how open source is.

Yes, you are correct. I had to watch it again.

Based on the v4 development cycle, I estimate that a stable release 5 will be around Oct 2017 (actual production release, not a release candidate or beta). This is based on a 9 month period from when a feature freeze is declared (v5 is not frozen yet, but promised soon).

There are some features from the v5 roadmap that are being bumped to v6. I expect v6 to be sometime in 2019.

Also the slides of the presentation are available.

In the FOSDEM event page: https://fosdem.org/2017/schedule/event/kicad_status/
click on the "Attachments (audio)" link

Never trust the autorouter... and neither trust URL descriptions  ;)

Are you some sort of spam bot gone wrong? Your posts appear to be random and often don't make any sense.

The current stable release is version 4, anyway. Version 5 will be the next release.

Definitely a bot. There's also another one called technotronix. I don't know why they are here though...
