I can't see going backwards to 5.x from a nightly....

What would be the most significant improvement in your opinion?

Just liking the new experience. :)

Bugs should get less as time goes on.
But having said that adding new code creates new bugs.
Test test test is the answer or just put it out to people to debug it for them.
My preferred method is to just be very careful with the code you write in the first place.

hello, i have a question... when can i download the latest KICAD (v6.0.0 rc1 or rc2)? does anyone here have the link? i don't really want to build that myself since i don't have the compiler  :)

woofy:
This gets you RC2

sudo add-apt-repository --yes ppa:js-reynaud/kicad-dev-nightly
sudo apt update
sudo apt install kicad-nightly

Or equivalent for your distro. That is the legacy way that I used.

Latest:
sudo add-apt-repository --yes ppa:kicad/kicad-dev-nightly
sudo apt update
sudo apt install kicad-nightly

But I've not tested that.

chickenHeadKnob:
Has anyone here achieved a successful  install of the reynaud nightlies on Ubuntu or Mint virtual machine lately, as in  the last few days? I tried on both LTS 20.04 based ubuntu minimum and Mint (mate edition). The result is the download appeared successful and I can get the top level running but the moment I try to launch eeschema, or PCB ect. it crashes silently.

I fear I am doing something really stupid and obviously wrong.
