Version 2017.11 was just released!!


ALERT!!  If you are using a custom Preference file, you must manually correct this setting –
  • Preferences > Console > Least Density > Terminals > Gullwing > SOD > Density Level > Side > From 0.20 to 0.05
  • Go back to Console and change the Density Level back to your default setting
  • Save your Preference file

      NEW / ENHANCED:
      • Calculator & 3D STEP:
        • Added ‘Filter’ component family to Chip and Molded Body
      • Preferences:
        • Added a new feature in Terminals > Through-hole > Bottom Side Keepout option

      FIXED:
      • Calculator:
        • Fixed a SOFL component family issue. Moving SOFL parts to FP Designer set the body width to the Lead Span.
        • SOL component family – updated the Terminal > Image picture
      • Library Editor:
        • Fixed a problem with PADS-to-FPX viewer and builder
      • Preferences:
        • Terminals > L Bend – updated the Image picture
      • FP Designer:

      • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
        • Fixed a problem with slotted hole rotations
        • Fixed an issue with offset pad stack data
        • Moved the Labels to the origin 0, 0
      • PADS Layout:
        • Fixed offset slotted holes rotated in 180 and 270 degree rotations when the CAD tool can only handle 0 and 90 degree rotations
      • General:
        • Bottom Keep-outs should be working again for PADS Layout and Allegro/OrCAD PCB

      Why you are updating software every month with lots of bugs most of the time. We need to update software about 15 times each year. I think your software testing is not good. Because we are facing so many bugs in each version. It is good if you release 2 or 3 versions in a year by testing all functions.

      A bit more detailed description of custom Preference file change process:

      1. Set "Preferences" > "Console" > "SMD Density Level (suffix)" to "Least (L)"

      2. Change  "Preferences" > "Terminals" > "Gull Wing" > "SOD" > "Density Level" > "Side" from 0.20 to 0.05

      3. Set "Preferences" > "Console" > "SMD Density Level (suffix)" to your original density level

      4. Save Preferences file

      V2017.11 has all known bugs fixed and a new feature for automatically adding Bottom Side "Wave Solder Placement Keep-outs" to through-hole footprints.

      V2017 is very close to the last release this year. We will not add any new features to V2017 (except a very important one coming soon) and that will be it until we release V2018.
