Community


Developer Announcements This category is for the developers to put out requests for comment from the community and announce when significant changes will be coming to the nightly builds. This may result in a request for more beta testers focused on a particular area. KiCon 2019 This category is to discuss KiCon 2019, including activities, workshops, talks and more! Discuss the conference, happening in April of 2019! For more information, check out the conference page: https://kicad-kicon.com Feature Request Chat However, we do have a couple developers that are on this forum and if people insist on posting things here, it’s best to have a place to do so. This also offers a better place to discuss/debate than other mediums (also without mucking up the developer mailing list)
