Eagle License for 7.7.0

<< < (2/2)

macegr:
We are already looking at the loss of 7.7 on a platform in the somewhat near term. It will not run on Apple M1 hardware without emulation, it will not be recompiled for that architecture. So in maybe 4 or 5 years, there will be a very small and shrinking number of Mac users able to run native Eagle 7.

I still have old running Macs, plus Windows and Linux options for continuing to run Eagle. But all my new personal designs have been in KiCad. Industry is settling into Altium pretty much everywhere else I've seen.

I'm using eagle 7.7.0 on mac book pro 2015 osx 10.15.6 and it always quits when I zoom in too fast. Sometime it makes graphics problems. I never had any issues with windows (7 and 10).
I guess you are right, this version will become obsolete. Still very powerful with lifelong license, made to be used offline, which is the greatest advantage for me.

I'd like to buy a license for Linux .... but it seems impossible  :-//

There is a complete workaround for board size and partial workaround for number of layers.
Eagle CAD itself is not touched in any way.

Workaround for layers is described in this topic - it is simple and can be done manually, while the board size thing requires some automation.

I'm using a Mid 2015 MBP but it's running El Capitan (10.11.6) and Eagle 7.7.0 is flawless. Putting off the inevitable changeover as long as possible - I have a nice setup with Eagle now, and I don't need the downtime switching to something else.

Eventually, that will probably be KiCAD, but maybe Altium. We shall see, but for now it's happy times with Eagle 7.7.0!
