Release notes for pcb-4.0.1

Dear Users,

This release fixes a number of bugs.

Kind regards,

The pcb development team

The following authors contributed to the 4.0.1 release:
- Milan Prochac
- Charles Parker
- Dan McMahill
- Sergey Alyoshin
- Igor2
- Peter Clifton
- bert

Please note that names are in no particular order and all e-mail
addresses have been removed for privacy.

User experience improvements
- reorchestrated the closing of the command window to not crash.
- only invalidate the screen after changes to the crosshair or mark are

- none

- fix for gcode dimensions.
- added a regression test for the IPC-D-356 exporter.
- added more documentation for the IPC-D-356 netlist exporter.

Footprints library
- add macro with more programmability for 2 pin axial components. Use
  this to add a few IPC-7251 compliant footprints for axial inductors,
  horizontally mounted.  Use this in turn for the TDK B82145A RF chokes
- add toko category and the 7P variable inductors.
- gen_geda_*.awk were nearly identical to gen_*.awk so add 2 lines to
  geda.inc so we can use the same script for everything.  Verified that
  pcblib-newlib builds with identical results before/after.
- for the horizontally mounted axial macro add the missing bits for
  marking polarity on parts like diodes.
- add PKG_RADIAL_MM100 macro for doing more general metric 2 pin radial
- add some IPC radial capacitor footprints and use those to create some
  united chemicon footprints.
- add DO-41 diode package, horizontally mounted.
- add PKG_MTHOLE_GENERIC macro for fairly generic mounting holes.  Use
  this to define IPC mounting holes for #4 and #6 machine screws with
  pan heads or flat washers for both "tight" (board < 4") and \ 
  (board > 4") fits.
- add TO-263 footprint.
- add some notes about m4 library development.
- fix problem in some possible invocations of the generic mounting hole
  macro.  All footprints pass syntax checks again.
- remove an extra empty attribute which is not needed and causes
  warnings in the mounting hole macro.
- fix clearance on the Toko 7P footprint.
- in the mounting hole macro, change the calculation of the pad size for
  the support vias to make them as large as possible without actually
  changing the copper (the support vias are covered by the main pad).
  This does not affect the fabricated board but it does remove some
  false positive DRC complaints.

Developer experience improvements
- allow translators to change number of tabs in message.
- In the test suite, check for a working X display using xhost before
  running action script tests
- match() with 3 arguments is a gawk extension. Rework the code to avoid
  using a 3 argument call to match() in one spot.  Lets the script run
  with gawk or NetBSD's awk (20121220).  Verified that the generated
  result is identical to the previous gawk result using both gawk and
  NetBSDs awk.
- change from AC_FD_CC to AS_MESSAGE_LOG_FD
- removed the antifork abomination.
- disabled one of the checks used to deal with older gdlib installs on
  some linux systems when building under cygwin as the test has
  problems.  Repairs building for mingw under cygwin.
- when building under cygwin, create a pcbtest.bat batch file that
  allows testing the compiled pcb without installing.  This is somewhat
  analogous to the pcbtest.sh script generated on linux and other
  unix-like systems.
- cleanup the win32 build script a good bit.  An important change is
  that instead of blindly installing all of the mingw cross system root
  files, only install a set of listed ones.  This not only reduces the
  size of the windows installer but makes sure we have a more repeatable
  build and know what we are actually bundling into the installer.
- fixed the Attribute deletion code.

Notes for early adapters
- none

Changed dependencies
- none

Fixed and committed Launchpad bug reports
#700193   Append branch to version string.

Update to pcb-4.0.0

Release notes for pcb-4.0.0

Dear Users,

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
this introduction 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.

Kind regards,

The pcb development team

User experience improvements
- added the command-line option --save-metric-only.
- added escaping of Attribute values.
- added a translation of the Getting Started with PCB for pt_BR.
- added translatable tooltips for toolbar buttons.
- added "Report net length" to Menu -> Info in Gtk.
- added a script for generating a key binding list.
- added tooltips in the GTK HID UI.
- the puller no longer crosses unplated holes.
- solder/component outer layer names changed to top/bottom.
- pcb now uses a tilde instead of a dash for backup filenames.
- corrections in the user documentation.
- the position "delta" display no longer forces the GTK HID window to
- write time in ASCII locale into exported files.
- allow for up to 10000 dpi on png exporter output.

- added smartdisperse for dispersing elements better, contributed by
  Ben Jackson.
- added relocate for relocating elements, contributed by Jean Richard.
- added RenumberBlock() and RenumberBuffer(), contributed by DJ Delorie.
- added teardrops(), contributed by DJ Delorie.

- added a netlister conforming to the IPC-D-356 standard, contributed by
  Jerome Marchand.
- changed "as-shown" to "screen-layer-order" in the png and \ 
eps hids.

Footprints library
- added a SC88A footprint.
- added a LQFP80-10 footprint.
- added QFN24_5 and TQFN24_5 footprints.
- added a SOD523 footprint.
- the SOT325 package had a wrong numbering.
- renamed the SOT325 footprint to SOT353.
- in the ALF footprint the drill holes were too tight.
- an infinite loop in the SIL m4 macro was fixed.

Developer experience improvements
- made a start with adding Doxygen developer documentation tags in the
  source files.
  A pcb.dox configuration file is available in the "doc/doxygen"
  directory so developers can build the documentation there by invoking
  "doxygen pcb.dox" from the CLI.
  This is not done by configuring with --enable-docs, which is solely
  reserved for the generation of User documentation.
- added numerous fixes in the win32 target.

Notes for early adapters
In the git repository two tags have been added to allow for checking
out of pcb-4.0.0 at the branch point (git checkout pcb-4.0.0-base) or at
the release point (git checkout pcb-4.0.0-RELEASE).
This is in line with tagging done in former snapshots.

Changed dependencies
- autoconf 2.60 --> 2.69.
- gettext 0.14 --> 0.19.3.
