Footprint features - stable vs nightly


Hi all,

Can someone tell me a complete list of the differences between footprint
"features" in nightly and stable? There is a recent issue where someone
added a footprint using roundrect pads and broke a library for someone
using stable.

I can easily add a search for "roundrect" to the automated library checker
but what else should I be looking for?

As an aside, I think it would be **very** helpful if the footprint library
loader was able to skip over "bad" footprints and continue to load.
Currently a single bad footprint prevents any subsequent footprints from
loading. If we had the ability to skip bad ones, then we could add "future"
footprints and these would simply be ignored by stable version.
