Board layer names in demos


Do all our demo boards have the new layer names embedded in them yet? Can somebody please check for the string "Layer[15]" in all the demo *.brd files?

Before building the latest PCBNEW from head as of today, it might be prudent to load and save any of the demo *.brd files that do not have the layer names embedded in the files. Because as of rev 2139 of PCBNEW the *default* layer names have changed. Therefore *if* you must have old default layer names rather than the new default layer names, the best way to preserve those old layer names is to make sure you have actual (overriding) layer names in your old board files, and not rely on the default names.
