2022.08 was just released!!

Updates & Bugs Fixed:
  • Options:
    • Drafting Outlines – Assembly polarity indicator option changed to on as Default
    • Silkscreen polarity dot default options changed to most = 0.60, nom = 0.50, least = 0.40
    • BGA and CGA default percent values changed to reflect IPC-7351B pad size calculation
    • Options 'Ask to Save' message pops up redundantly on program close
    • Terminals > Grid Array > BGA – updated the pad reduction percentages to match IPC-7351B pad sizes
  • Calculators:
    • DPAK – orientation changed to match dimension reference drawing
    • 2-Pin Packages SMD & PTH – updated the assembly polarity marking to lower left to be consistent with semiconductor assembly polarity marking
    • BGA – silkscreen outline not closing; dot not relocating correctly when rotated
    • BGA – when using the min/max dimensions only and mapping the Assembly Outline to the Nominal body caused errors
    • Problem with silkscreen for AE Caps and DFN2's when terminal widths get too large or silkscreen maps to minimum body
    • DFN3 and DPAK Tabs now treated as signal pins instead of thermal tabs
    • DFN silkscreen over pads in some parts with wide lead spacing
  • Library Editor:
    • Added trap for illegal ASCII characters in library edits, helps prevent FPX files from getting corrupted
    • Library 'Find' function doesn't work after translating a part
    • Date formatted info not loading correctly from library sometimes
    • Library sort – pasted cells go to the end
    • Importing libraries with missing footprint dates not working
  • FP Designer:
    • Rotation, Mirror and Polarity Dot functions not working correctly
    • Pin import function not functioning correctly
  • CAD Tool Interfaces:
    • Xpedition menu not showing the Component Outline layer selection option
    • Allegro and OrCAD PCB 3D files not saving to the correct folder
  • Miscellaneous:
    • Programs crashes when opening with FPX double-click
