'''pcb''' has been updated from 0.20100929 to 0.20110918.  In addition to numerous bug fixes, the following list some of the significant changes:
 
+
* Internal coordinate space is now metric. This should fix the "trace nubs on metric grids" issue. Also, units are allowed on pretty much every "coordinate" that PCB accepts. Example: 5.4in, 10cm, 0.55mm.
  Old Version: 0.20100929 -> New Version: 0.20110918
+
* New configure option --enable-coord64 to force (slower?) 64-bit type for coordinates on 32-bit systems (if you need a board bigger than 1 meter across). The internal precision is 1 nanometer,
 
+
* New GTK layer view/choose widget and other GUI enhancements.

+
* GTK HID warns if the *.pcb file has changed on disk.
 +
* Enhanced grid snapping logic.
 +
* Select/report nets by name.
 +
* Auto-pan has been removed.
 +
* Zoom can zoom out beyond the edge of the board's workspace.
 +
* Personally identifiable information is no longer stored in the PCB.
 +
* Toggling vias from hole to plated is reversible.
 +
* Gerber exporter has options for including outlines on other layers.
 +
* Edited footprint files are saved as footprints, not pcbs.
 +
* Autorouter has a progress dialog.
 +
* PCB will no longer let you delete the last top/bottom layer.
 +
* Via copper may overlap.
