pcb-4.0.0 released

Written for pcb by Bert Timmerman on 2017-01-17

Dear Users and Contributors,

It has been quite some time since the last snapshot of pcb was released
in March 2014.

Since then quite a lot of bugs were fixed and new features added, below
a summary is given of the improvements and additions since the latest
snapshot "pcb-20140316".

This release represents over 480 commits (mostly bugfixes and code
refactoring) and as such this summary clearly is not complete.

This pcb release 4.0.0 has a significant change in the major version

This is done to make a fresh start and to get away from the 1.99z
version with YYYYMMDD snapshots.

The tarball and checksums file can be downloaded from:


Any bugs, or others shortcomings, can be reported to either the geda-user
mailing list or the Launchpad Bug Tracker:


Kind regards,

The pcb development team
