Re: 6.0.1


I have a simple one.

Choosing some symbol is sometimes very difficult because it is long list , very long list of the same thing with just pin count varying for example.

In a future version, KiCad may address that by only displaying a single line for the symbol, same as a regular expression.


and expand that on demand.

These are all generated by scripts.

It is easy for each script to insert a field saying simply how it was developped and thus how KiCad can factorise all the serie

Just reserve a keyword in the parsers so that any v6 can read without complaining.

(property "CompactedFamily" )    <= not happy
(property "CompactedFamily" none)
(property "CompactedFamily" [01,02]_[02..64]_[H,V]_2.54mm )

Same for footprints

Just a quick heads up to all library, package, documentation, and translation developers, barring any unexpected critical bugs I will be tagging stable release version 6.0.1 late on Tuesday, January 11 (EST) for official release on January 15th.  If you have anything you want to push before 6.0.1, now would be a good time.
