Re: Any release candidates fro V6 planned.


Hi David,

You could download the latest nightly version now and start testing
already. Bug reports now will be better than bug reports when rc1 comes out.

For what it's worth, I'm already using KiCad nightly at work for real
projects. There are still some bugs being worked on but it is very usable
as it stands. The more people using KiCad nightly now and reporting bugs,
the more likely it will be stable when rc1 comes out.

Hope that helps.
