Eagle V6 beta?

(1/1)

IanJ:
Hi all,

Downloaded and installed, but not had much time to play.

http://www.cadsoftusa.com/betatest/

It says ver win-5.91.1-beta but I notice it's saving the files in XML.........so is this a public release of V6 with all it's bells n whistles.....?

Ian.

alm:
I would think so based on the message than v5 license holders may have to upgrade their license to v6. See also https://www.eevblog.com/forum/index.php?topic=5437.0.

tinhead:
not necessarily public beta v6 but first step in that direction.

However UPDATE_en.txt the says:
