Version 2012.19 has just been released!

Fixes & Updates:
  • Changed "Data Sheet" to "Datasheet" in the FPX file Attribute for web-link
  • Paste Mask checkerboard on thermal pads fixed; now creates full checkerboard array
  • Corners now trim correctly for LCC component family
  • LGAs now follow silk to pad gap rule
  • Parts for each CAD format are generated in their proper directory, as expected

NEW:

  • Support for OrCAD Layout
  • If saving to a CAD format fails, empty directories are removed
  • A 'tooltip' will give you the full directory name if the path overflows the text box
  • The Output Directory is now editable, and upon hitting create it will be validated to ensure its an existing directory; now allowing user to copy and paste paths
  • Updated CAD translators; removed from DefaultPreferences.dat and now have separate unique GUI to better track preferred user settings
  • Added new Texas Instruments FPX file with 852 SMT packages

Important V2012.19 Release Note:
 
Unfortunately, some of our "test" FPX files got into the V2012.19 installation.
 
These FPX files are: SON, QFN, SOT143 and CGA and they are in this folder -
C:\Program Files (x86)\PCB Libraries\FPX 2012\Libraries\IPC
 
Please manually delete them. The CGA FPX is corrupted so don't even open it.
 
All of the parts in these FPX files are already fixed and in the SMT FPX file.
 
There should only be 3 FPX files in the IPC folder -
  1. BGA
  2. SMT
  3. Texas Instruments

Delete everything else.

 
This issue will be fixed tonight and a new V2012.19 installer uploaded, but if you already installed V2012.19, please delete the extra FPX files for your own protection.
 
Sorry for the inconvenience.

This was fixed in a new installer, still 2012.19.
If you download/reinstall, you will not have this problem any longer.

If you are a PADS Layout User, do not use V2012.19 release. Stay with V2012.18.
 
We'll have V2012.20 released soon.
