In this last release candidate of our next major stable release 2.0.0, we fixed several critical CAD engine bugs related to arc and ellipse classes, and we also improved packaging for both OS/X and Windows.
While the current OS/X installers are more stable compared with our previous releases, we encourage OS/X users/developers to help the stabilization process by testing and reporting issues/patches to our bug trackars or user forums.
Thanks to contributions from our large user community, LibreCAD-2.0.0rc3 supports 46 localizations in 25 languages.
We will start 2.1 forking soon with the formal release of 2.0.0. and interested developers may start sharing their ideas and pull requests by then. Please join us to make LibreCAD better!
The 2.0.0rc3 installers for Windows and OS/X can be found at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/librecad/files/

It’s great, LibreCAD become better and better. I’ve been using LibreCAD since version 1. I still remember, a year ago it had issue with the hatching feature. Now the version 2.0.0 is going to be released, I’m so excited to try it and will write a review about it on my blog.
Congratulations for the work and thanks for this great project.
Please, read the article about DWG support in free software, linked in this post:
What’s up with the DWG adoption in free software?
The situation is sadly still the same.

Great Project, the world should be open source.
Version 2.0.0rc3 not open old files. OSX Mavericks.
I am a hobbyist designer/draftsman that was trained on AutoCAD many years and since then been using Blender to do anything I need for a project. I have long missed my ability to get precision out of my models. I came across this project today and I have to say I am thoroughly impressed. Being able to do my 2D precision work with LibreCAD and then importing it to Blender is liberating.
Great job and thanks for all the hard work in making this.
Was librecad 2.0.0 released? Debian Sid have that version.
