Updated Fritzing release

Posted on Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 in Development, News, software by the machinegeek

We previously highlighted Fritzing, an open source GUI based program that allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, show them in a presentation, and create a pcb layout for professional manufacturing.

The developers have released an updated version, which contains a number of improvements including a completely new autorouter, improved footprints for standard parts, reorganized capacitor group (with settable values), “locking” for parts (so they’re not accidentally moved), new Design Rules Check (use before pcb production), and variable trace wire thickness (from 8 to 128 mils). Several new parts were added, including Netduino Mini and Netduino Plus, Teensy 2.0 and Teensy 2.0++ and a set of four logic gates.
