Freeware version of EAGLE is still free – don’t worry

File-2

Some folks were worried about the latest brochure from Newark, and if there would still be a free version of EAGLE. We emailed the gang and they’ve posted in our comments.

Hi To All,

CadSoft Computer has no intentions of going away from offering the Freeware version of EAGLE. Your initial statement is False. If you look closely at the recent brochure, this is an offering by Newark. The 60 day freemiun license now offers certain capabilities more than our typical freeware version. CadSoft Computer has supported the DIY, Electronic Enthusiast and Student community for over 21 years and we have no plans of slowing down any time soon.

In fact, we have announced that the next version of EAGLE will no longer be supporting Binary file formats for Board, Schematic and Library files. EAGLE V6 will support well documented XML files.

Please view the official announcement by Make: http://www.element14.com/community/message/15751#15751
We would greatly appreciate that you get all the facts before posting such information.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!!

Ed

  2. Hi K. Scharf,

    Just a quick tip, there is an EAGLE forum on element14 where you can ask Richard Hammerl of CadSoft questions:

    He’s been doing EAGLE support for 16 years!

    Cheers,
    Drew
