LibreCAD 2.0 now available

30 December 2013, Mike Williams

After almost two years in the planning, alpha and beta stages, open source 2D drawing tool LibreCAD 2.0 has just been formally released.

The official LibreCAD blog details some of the additions and improvements that have been made along the way: an extended DXF library, new circle drawing methods, the ability to filters layers with regular expressions, hatching of ellipses, a quadratic form engine for intersections, SVG export, and more.

The real gains might come elsewhere, though. The development team have fixed an array of bugs, some serious, which means the new release should be far more stable. And significant improvements to the Windows and OS X build process appear to have worked as promised: there’s no more waiting around for PC and Mac versions, they now appear immediately with every new release.

LibreCAD 2.0 is a big package, though, and the only way to really find out what works, and what doesn’t, is to try it out for yourself. Linux, PC and Mac builds are available now: go take a look.
