Upgrade to Qt5
Fritzing is written on top the Qt cross-platform application framework. We have upgraded to their latest version Qt5, which brings stability and speed improvements (especially for Mac OS X users). This also enables us to port fritzing to Android, iOS, etc. — that is, in theory. We still need to give that a try. Thanks to Jonathan and contributor Rohan Lloyd!
Major part family additions
This release brings a number of new parts, especially a number of popular microcontrollers, as the result of several collaboration efforts:
- ADI analog parts, which make use of split schematics and SPICE output, a new feature sponsored by Analog Devices we will write more about soon
- Intel Galileo, sponsored by Intel Education
- Arduino Yún, supported by Arduino
- Linino One, sponsored by doghunter
- ChipKIT WF32, MX4 and shields, thanks to Digilent (more to come)
- Spark Core, thanks to spark community member technobly
- Atlas Scientific sensors, thanks to Atlas Scientific
- more Raspberry Pi versions (A, B, B rev2)
- Teensy 3.0/3.1, because we love it
- several contributed parts, thanks to FrodeLillerud and others
In addition, there are several new PCB shapes for Raspberry Pi, Intel Galileo, SparkCore that will make your boards look cooler. Here’s a snapshot of the Intel Galileo shield in action for the Data Monster: Finally, the usual set of bugfixes, and nicely updated translations: French (thanks to Arnold Dumas!), German (thanks to atalanttore!), Ukrainian (thanks to netavek!).
