Re: Definitive list of changes in 4.07 (RC?), especially python pcbnew


Hi Greg

The so called action plugins are not available in the 4.0 branch and
probably never will.

You can see the chages to the comming 4.0.7 since 4.0.6 on

I don't think any python bindings have changed since 4.0.6. I hope this
answers your question.
