  • Calculator:
    • Added Polarized Inductors to the Through-hole > Radial (Inductor) family
    • DFN component family: when using the mfr. recommended pattern, the DRC rules prevented you from entering dimensional data that violated the rules
    • SOT223 component family: when changing the pad shape to Rectangular, Pin 1 pad stack matched Pin 4
    • TO DPAK: when using the mfr. recommended pad stack, if the pad was wider than the component body the program removed all silkscreen outlines
    • QFN component family: fixed silkscreen for high-density packages
    • Corner Concave Oscillator: added wrap-around silkscreen for small packages
    • Minimum Solder Mask Gap was not adhering to the rules and Gang Mask was not working properly
    • Local Fiducials: In certain situations in QFP, the program was not following user preferences for adding fiducials only when the pin pitch is below a user defined value
  • FP Designer:
    • Square pad shape produced a round solder mask
    • The feature to add multiple pins with the same pin number has been restored
    • When creating a Round Body part, adding pads effected the silkscreen diameter
    • Non-plated hole pad stack names did not include the pad size 
  • Library Editor:
    • When Copy/Paste or Import FPX if the Part Number already existed the warning would indicate the Footprint Name and not the Part Number
    • When deleting rows of data from an FPX file and then Import FPX, the new imported data was not organized at the end of the FPX file
    • When coping a row from one FPX file to another, the RMB Paste threw an error message
    • Library Column sorting only happens when a column header is clicked
    • Value changes no longer result in row order updating
    • Find/Replace should work much better now
    • Improved the Sort by Column feature
  • Preferences:
    • Grid Array preferences were locked and un-editable
    • On a new installation, when you select “Save As > File Name” the program does not recognize the new Preference file until you select “Open File” and select your new FPX file
    • User footprint name Suffix is now applied to every part in your FPX file
    • Some Terminal > Through-hole preferences were not being saved properly
  • Allegro/OrCAD PCB:
    • Fixed the scripting so that Lines which utilize non-45 degree lines draw properly
    • You can now map a layer to PLACE_BOUND_TOP and it will automatically become a shape
    • Mirroring for Courtyard to DFA_BOUND_TOP will only happen if Courtyard is set to PLACE_BOUND_TOP
  • PADS Layout:
    • Fixed a problem parsing back-to-back arcs in the PADS Decal reader
    • The PADS importer now sets both height and width correctly for round thermals
  • CR-5000:
    • Updated the output of Centers to be vectors from the start point to the center instead of points
  • EAGLE:
    • Fixed a problem with drills when dealing with through-hole parts with surface mount pads
  • Target 3001!:
    • Fixed a point where arcs were using the Diameter instead of the Radius.
  • Parts on Demand (POD):
    • Added 40,000 new part numbers
