KiCAD 5.99 - Productivity Gains

I want to express my gratitude for the efforts being put into v6.00.

I started a new project in v5.99 about 10 days ago and am very impressed with how quickly the work goes. I think this is due to many small changes (improvements) in the various UIs. Menu organization seems improved as well.

One of the tasks was creating an ugly footprint (AD/LT’s LGA-66 for the LTM8040). I don’t know if the rename multiple pads is new or that I was just now able to find it, but what an improvement!

This isn’t to denigrate the (likely more difficult) internal changes, just a “thumbs up” from an “All Thumbs” user.

Thanks again,
MMM
