/eagle, Easy to use printed circuit board editor
7.7.0nb1, Package name:
eagle-7.7.0nb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
The EAGLE Layout Editor is an easy to use, yet powerful tool for designing
printed circuit boards (PCBs). The name EAGLE is an acronym, which stands for
Easily Applicable Graphical Layout Editor.
The program consists of three main modules
* Layout editor
* Schematic editor
which are embedded in a single user interface. Therefore there is no need
for converting netlists between schematics and layouts.

Updated cad/eagle to 7.7.0
Release notes for EAGLE 7.7.0
- Update of various spots in EAGLE regarding the license changes introduced
by Autodesk: Standard, Premium, Ultimate, Express and Educational.
The 30 day trial license has been removed.
- Added 'manufacturing.ulp' provided by Autodesk. It supports an upload of EAGLE
drawing files to 'circuits.io' in order to generate manufacturing data which
can then be downloaded. The ULP is accessible as an icon in the board editor.
- Added 'ecadio.ulp' provided by Autodesk. It supports an upload of EAGLE boards
to 'ecad.io' in order to generate a 3D PCB for use in MCAD systems.
The ULP is accessible as an icon in the board editor.
* UI improvements:
- Added Option.SignalNames to display the signal names on the signal wires
and on the connected pads and SMDs.
It can be set in the Settings dialog under 'Misc/Display signal names'.
- The options Option.SignalNames, Option.PadNames and Option.ViaLength are
set to 'On' by default.
- Improved visibility of scrollbars for common window styles on Linux.
- Silently ignoring double references to a contact within a signal when loading
a board file.
- CAM Processor: when running 'Process Job' with more than one section,
it is checked if the job covers the Layer Setup only partially.
- The file locking option has been switched off by default. Use 'Backup/Locking'
under 'Options' in Control Panel to turn it on.
- Update of EAGLE logo to the new appearance since Autodesk acquisition.
- Update of Hungarian translation (GUI without help and manual).
- Fixed UL functions strsplit() and lookup() to handle unusual UTF8 characters
- Fixed potential crash of the 64 bit versions when loading EAGLE drawings
from old format (e.g. V3.55).
- Image export to TIFF format in monochrome: fixed a regression regarding the
- The selected object is no longer removed from the group after running a ULP
started through 'SET CONTEXT Object ...'; the ULP might want to use this
one-object group afterwards with e.g. 'exit("move (>@)")'.
- Ensuring valid move of polygon wires or an entire polygon if selecting a
wire with 'SET CONTEXT Wire ...' or using setgroup() in a ULP.
- Fixed history of dlgStringEdit to become case sensitive.
- Fix for refresh of images in Control Panel preview on Windows.
- Added a check for identical pinrefs when loading a schematic to avoid a
- Fixed deleting/splitting busses with portrefs involved: it could happen that
new port connections couldn't be established anymore.
- Fixed selecting an end of a wire with the context menu.
- Fix for ULP function ingroup() returning true for too many objects after
UNDOing of transferring a group to another sheet.

Updated cad/eagle to 7.6.0, ( Following is from doc/UPDATE_en)
Release notes for EAGLE 7.6.0
- Since EAGLE requires OS X 10.8 or higher on MAC which are all 64 bit OS,
we are no longer providing the 32 bit version for MAC.
* EDIT command:
- Now the EDIT command allows changing to the proper editor window with
'edit .sch' and 'edit .brd' even in the library editor.

- Fixed WINDOW FIT due to wrong calculation of the bounding box regarding
the cross-reference display area on MUST gates; only gates with text place-
holder '>XREF' are taken into account.
- Avoiding use of the colon for modules and module prefixes. It is reserved
as hierarchical name separator.
- Fixed net renaming issue: Renaming a net with segments on several sheets
over the INFO dialog could lead to inconsistency and empty net names.

Update 7.4.0 to 7.5.0 (2015/11/17)
* EAGLE Editions:
- The EAGLE Freeware edition now starts with a temporary advertisement window
and the Control Panel has got an advertisement section.
- For the EAGLE Light edition (both Freeware and Commercial) the number of
available schematic sheets has been increased to 2.
- Now the icons in EAGLE are scalable (see Options menu in Control Panel).
The icons are in SVG format and stored in folder 'icons' under the bin folder.
The classic set of EAGLE icons is not available in SVG format and therefore
- Added highlighting of the current group if starting GROUP command.
- Added tool tips to the DRC/ERC error list containing the error descriptions.
- Update of various ULPs integrated into EAGLE's editors:
- In the Board editor under File/Export the entries 'Unidat' (unidat.ulp) and
'DIF4.0' (dif40.ulp) have been taken out. An entry 'Mount SMD' has been added
- In the Board editor under File/Import the entry 'Ultiboard'
(import-ultiboard-ddf.ulp) has been taken out. The new entries 'DXF' and
'Gerber' have been added, executing import-dxf.ulp resp. import-gerber.ulp.
The Gerber import is a new functionality.
Import of DXF is available in the Schematic editor as well.
- In the Board editor under Tools the new entries 'Element array placement'
(new component-array.ulp) and 'Mirror board' (mirror-board.ulp) have been
- In the Library editor there is now File/Import with entry 'BSDL', starting
- Extension of proxy settings by an optional username and password.
Saving of the password is also optional and in an encrypted form.
See Help/Check for Update/Configure in Control Panel.
- Added a special DRC error for intersecting signal polygons with same rank.
- Workaround for Linux 64 bit, because Red Hat (RHEL 6.6) is not
yet providing an up-to-date GLIBC library.
- Implementation of a basic file locking mechanism: by default any files
that are loaded into an EAGLE editor are locked, i.e. not available for
writing by other EAGLE instances. Locked files are reported to the user.
He can retry getting the file, save under a different name, continue editing
without saving or break the lock. The locking can be switched off
which is saved in eaglerc user settings.
- Added a new set of schematics, boards and libraries from 3rd party 'seeed'.
The libraries are in a directory 'seeed' under the library folder, the
schematics and boards in examples/'seeed' under the projects folder.
See also www.seeed.cc.
- Fix for not searchable PDF printings on MAC.
- Fix to avoid intensive network traffic caused by GUI elements of the
- Fixed unusable confirm dialog in CAM processor; under special conditions
it could be blocked by the progress dialog.
- Fix for wrong display of mirrored texts in package previews.
- Fixed handling of vias if reselecting a differential pair for routing.
- If starting the autorouter, the TopRouter is now checking whether
the board is already routed completely.
- Made image export to TIFF format work again. There was a regression in V7.3.
- Restored V6 behavior for designs w/o hierarchy if combining or renaming
net segments, which could cause unnecessary ripups.
- Now 64 colors of all palettes are initialized.
- Correction of the number of available layers for 'Make Personal' edition
from 4 to 6.
- Keeping order of 'SET CONTEXT' commands if displaying the context menu.
- Avoiding a crash on Mac if closing a drawing window with Command(Apple)-W
immediately after loading a board and schematic pair and restoring the
