CADuntu Beta 4

Hello all!

I am in the middle of moving to a other house, but I guess I can spare a couple of minutes to create a new blog entry.

A couple of weeks ago, I released a Beta3, and shortly after user found some issues, so I never officially announced a Beta 3. I made all changes and here it is… Beta 4!

So what’s fixed then in 3&4?

  • Button/text overlap in toolbar area : 3101744, 3101614
  • Restore and save dockstate: 3091386 patch by Rallaz
  • Replaced older dxflib with new dxf library
  • Added polyline support: from Jan’s qcad free
  • Fixed crash on command line interaction: 3098531 reported by Adamzone
  • Fixed library browser : 3090688, reported by Rallaz
  • Fixed empty images during export: 3095753
  • Closing app works now correctly, when pressing cancel you really cancel: 3103190
  • Layers can be deleted, so as blocks: 3102199, 3105191 reported by rodrigopitanga
  • utf-8 support for layers and block names :
  • Menu errors (also in QCAD) : 3092018 reported by Robert
  • Switching between multiple drawings: 3056455 reported by sliptronic
  • Add some default libraries so the library browser show something.
  • More little things and stuff…

So, all in all I think CADuntu is much more mature now and I am really happy with the support from everybody! There is much more to come, but personally I am hoping to start working on my CAM additions so I can finally put my Mechmate to good use!

  1. Hello Reis, I’m the maintainer of QCad in Debian and Ubuntu. I’d like to talk to you about your plans and possible test/experimental inclusion in Debian (and an Ubuntu PPA) while your in Beta, and then full inclusion in Ubuntu/Debian when it’s ready. Please drop me an email (you should see it through this post). Thanks! Keep up the good work.

    • Here’s an Ubuntu ppa for libreCAD, beta4. Works with Ubuntu 11.04, 10.10, 10.04

      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:showard314/ppa
      sudo apt-get update
      sudo apt-get install librecad

      It doesn’t install documentation yet, but it will install all necessary libraries and a ugly-icon entry in the program menu under “Applications->Graphics”. You can start it from the command line by typing “caduntu”
