I'm not in with the KiCAD developer crowd.
Their discussions are here:
(Frustration with all these crap ad-hoc
non-standard formats that has locked up dozens of projects
in disparate proprietary systems has driven me 100% to KiCAD.
Its a big cost saving. I average a new PCB a week these days.
Because KiCAD is free, at least we can all learn to use it.
If I get time and more PCB work, I make some GAMBAS utilities
to manage more functions. I sorely need a dxf import
function, a function to auto extract from .brd all individual
footprints, a way to keep foot prints and schematic
symbols together, assemble a PCB from a script, etc.
I downloaded the PADS specification, but
from what I understand it is going to get dropped.
More $$$ for its makers I imagine as they make everyone
run like mad to buy their proprietary software to avoid being locked
out of the design files. Sheesh!)
