The KiCad project is proud to announce the latest series 5 stable release of KiCad. The 5.0.1 stable version contains critical bug fixes and other minor improvements since the 5.0.0 release. It also includes improved footprint, symbol, and 3D model libraries, translations, and documentation. A list of all of the fixed bugs since the 5.0.0 release can be found on the KiCad 5.0.1 milestone page. This release contains several critical bug fixes so please consider upgrading as soon as possible.
|Please note that a last minute bug was found in the Eagle schematic import feature too late to be fixed in this release which is expected to be fixed in release 5.0.2. If you need to convert Eagle schematics you may want to hold off upgrading until 5.0.2.|
Version 5.0.1 is made from the lp:kicad/5.0 branch with some cherry picked changes from the development branch.
KiCad binaries will be available for download for Windows, MacOS, and Linux are available or will be in the very near future. See the download page for guidance.
Thank you to all developers, packagers, librarians, document writers, translators, and everyone else who helped make this release possible.
