KiCad 6 is coming! (has arrived!!)

<< < (38/89) > >>

Mark19960:
I figured I would toss my hat into the version 6 ring....

I like what I see. There are numerous improvements to functionality and "quality of life".
I can't see going backwards to 5.x from a nightly....
(and yeah, I know that can bite me)

Just liking the new experience. :)

Smokey:
I'm a little confused about what's going on with this. 

Here are their GitLab Milestones:
https://gitlab.com/kicad/code/kicad/-/milestones?sort=due_date_desc&state=all

They show version 6.0.0-rc1 as 100% complete with no open issues, but there isn't either an RC2, or a full release milestone. 

Does this mean it's ready and they are just working on logistics of pushing out the official v6 release? 
Is there some other place where they are keeping track of what's left to do for the 6 release?

Complete means that task (RC1) was done. Other tasks remain to be done before release.

I get that.  I've worked with milestones before.

My confusion is coming from the fact that when you complete one milestone in a big long term project you typically move on to another one. 
If there was more work to do for v6, it would typically be included in another v6 related milestone.
I was expecting them to be working on something like "v6-RC2" or  "Official v6" or something like that.
The only obviously open milestone is "7.0".

I really don't care what they call their releases, or how they manage their project.  I'm much more interested in what bugs they still think need fixing in the nightlines for 6.0, and that's not obvious from their gitlab.

retiredfeline:
Maybe they haven't decided on the remaining milestones yet. Not every project is super-organised, small ones manage the best they can. Just sit back and it will be a pleasant surprise when it's released.
