Why not using V7.7? It's the last version before autodesk put their claws on it.
You can find it here: ftp://ftp.cadsoft.de/eagle/program/7.7/

It's actually the first release after Autodesk put their claws on it -- but the last before they switched it to subscription. It seems that they made superficial changes only compared to 7.6: https://www.autodesk.com/products/eagle/blog/eagle-7-7-out-now/

I would assume that this was still done by the CADsoft team, so hopefully they didn't break anything. But I will stick with my trusted 7.6 anyway, and live without net names overlaid on traces...
I'm stuck on 7.2.  Starting with 7.3, Cadsoft updated the version of Qt they were using and introduced a big graphics performance hit, at least for me on Linux with Nvidia.  This rather significant change did not appear in the release notes.

all by SUBSCRIPTION - no more BUY IT ONCE

1. You pay your one time fee for software that has been developed up to that point in time; or
2. You pay a subscription to have access to software that is continually updated.

Although, if you can constrain yourself to the limited board area of the free version you can always have access to the latest features anyway.

By the way, you only need to pay a subscription while you need access to the features of that subscription. If you need to develop a larger board for a few months, pay the subscription for just those few months then cancel it or drop back.

Yes, I think we all understand that. And we regret that, courtesy of Autodesk, option 1 is no longer available.

(And neither is option 1a: You pay an additional, reduced one-time fee for access to features that have been added, if and when these features are relevant to you.)
