We have a ton of new features and many bug fixes all based on user feedback. And as always there is lots more to come – but please oh please keep letting us know how we can make it better.
Features in this Release:
- Design History
- Part History
- More symbol types
- New Look and Feel
- Change Password
What does this mean for you? well let me tell you!
Design history V0.00001 is out, and we are looking for feedback, there is a lot more to come, but we are now officially the very first schematic capture program EVER to have version control. For starters you can now view previous snapshots – to see what a design looked like in the past, you can fork previous snapshots – which is kinda like going back in time and making a copy of a design.
Parts are versioned too! This lets you go back in time and see previous versions of a part.
BOM! Where?!?! no, not bomb but BOM. The BOM is the bill of materials, ie what parts make up a design. So now you can see what parts are in a design and how many were used.
New Look and Feel:
We have added a little colour to the mix, and added a couple of new dialogs to help navigation and give better feedback on actions. We also restructured some URLs, mainly the parts library, which can be found at http://upverter.com/parts (was parts.upverter.com before) and the eda tool is now http://upverter.com/eda (was eda.upverter.com). While we were at it we added a handful of new symbols, and made it easier to select the one that you want and made some of our error messages better.
