    I would like try to get a 5.0.1 release out next week end and then allow
    another week for our package devs to prep release packages before making
    the official release announcement if at all possible.  There are a lot a
    bug fixes in 5.0.1 that should be made available for users who don't
    want to bleed on the edge.  There is one outstanding critical bug [1]
    that needs to be fixed before this can happen.  Tom, have you made any
    progress on this?  I am willing to push the other two bugs[2][3] to
    5.0.2 or 5.1 as they are both likely to require some user testing before
    being released as stable.  Are there any other outstanding issues at the
    moment that I may have missed?  As always, thank you everyone for your

This is great news! I have one more issue [1] that I'd like to address in the 5.0.1 release.  More kicad2step fun.

You may want to coordinate with JP on this. I believe he is working on a fix as well. I also have a few ideas that I would like to discuss about the current design going forward. I'm going to be busy the rest of the day but tomorrow I will have some time to go over some of my thoughts about the current situation.
