August 1.0.0rc2 released

It’s been already two months ago since our 1.0.0rc1 release, but we haven’t been sitting still.

We have had over 200 commits from rc1 to rc2 and change keep coming in. We have had even more reports on our bug trackers on and more developers have been joining the project.

Also worth to mention is that our mailing/forum list is used on a day-by-day base with over 250 messages in 2 months.

One of the more notisable items solved is that the help file should work now for all users, OSX, Windows and Linuxs. The reason for this working under some situations and sometimes not was because I forgot to add the sqlite drivers to the installation packages. Because of this no help was displayed. For the persons where the help did display the double-click needed to activate a page was not always disc offered so we change this to a single click.

I want to thank the following people for there help:

  • Rallaz, he is our expert in Qt and DXF file formats, he does a tremendous jobs porting to pure qt4 and fixing bugs in the dxf parser
  • Li is our math wizard, he has been optimizing the ellipse functions and is working on more of the math related items within LibreCAD
  • Claude has been submitting more reports then I can count, he is helping on the mailing list and even get’s his hands dirty on some code and making patches
I can’t thank you enough guys for helping with this project!
What’s next is that we will properly make a rc3. There are still 20 bugs that we need to take a look at and that might need to get fixed into our very first release.

    • Rafael,

      we are indeed very happy with this swell. Currently we still aim for a stable 1.0.0 release where we have ironed all bugs that. Rallaz and Li already working in master a lot adding new features and code!

  2. Well done and all the best. Thanks to LibreCAD I was able to do some basic CAD work within an hour or two…I have never used any CAD program previously. Thank you so much for the excellent program. I can see a bright future for the project.

    • We just don’t have the time to recapitulate what we have done since rc2.

      lots of bug fixing for sure!

      still rc3 is there, one more rc to go, and hopefully, 1.0.0 release after that.
