While waiting for the windows nightly to be updated I am looking for some clarification: In the blog post on the KiCad web site under point 3:
Make sure your default KiCad template project file (kicad.pro) has no entries in the [eeschema/libraries] section or get a copy from the KiCad source repo. If you build from source or are using a nightly build, the update project template file has already been installed. It is imperative that you do not have any symbol libraries in your project files. Otherwise, you could possible be effect by this bug which the symbol library table is designed to resolve.
(Emphasis by me).
What does “have any symbol libraries in your project files” actually mean? Does it refer to the settings managed under Settings- Component libraries that is stored in the project .pro file? So should the list of component library files be cleared out before remapping?
Also under point 5:
For the most accurate remapping you should create a project library by copying the project cache file (project-name-cache.lib) to a different file and add it to the top of the symbol library list. You must use a version of KiCad prior to the symbol library table implementation in order to do this.
If one has made sure that there are not any symbols that only resides in the cache as instructed under point 1 of the blog post, will step 5 add any additional information, or is it just a safeguard in case something has been forgotten? (It just seems that this could contribute to a messy sym-lib-table file.)
(I am using the Nov. 7 nightly).
