LibreCAD-2.0.0rc2 released

After nearly three months of hard work, we are glad to announce the release of 2.0.0rc2 of LibreCAD, one more step towards our next major stable release 2.0.0. A short list of commit log is attached for your convenience.

As of 2.0.0rc2, we expect LibreCAD to be stable enough for daily usage, as we have fixed some serious issues since 2.0.0rc1 and have had more time for testing. As a free software project, we highly value feedback from our user community, whether it’s in form of bug reporting, wiki building, template/library sharing, or a friendly chat on IRC.

Our LibreCAD users would be pleased to welcome our new developers who are working hard to make LibreCAD better: Armin Stebich(LordOfBikes) and Tamas TEVESZ (g0rdon).

Beyond 2.0: please feel free to share your vision on LibreCAD-2.1 with our developers.

Thank you and enjoy LibreCAD-2.0.0rc2!
