Eagle 6.2 is now available - or - use designspark if you do not want the pcb size restrictions

Have you used it ?  Sometimes software designers makes me angry.They should listen of people using the software for inprovements and modifications....  Never mind!!!

i will stick in 5.11 for a while until i finish some important jobs that i have to do (the reason why i do not post alot lately). Then i will have time to experiment.

It installs as a separate program & does not touch your 5.11 directory

ON reading forums - there were significant problems with eagle 6.1 ( program crashes etc ) , not much on how 6.2 is performing - so it may be wise to stay with  5.11 (the stable version) for a while.
