Version 2021.03 was just released!!

NOTE: The V2021.03 was available online for a few days, but a new V2021.03 build was released at the time of this post. If you already downloaded V2021.03 prior to this post, it's recommended you re-download the newer build.
NEW or Enhanced Features:

  • Drill size roundoff feature added in Options > Through-hole > Terminals.

  • SMD Side Concave Package component family – the footprint name was missing the package width for 2-pin parts.
  • SMD Side Concave Package component family – the physical description was updated.
