Continuous parts updates, hi-res support, critical bug fixes, and more

Continuously updated parts library

The Fritzing parts library is now stored online at github and is automatically checked for updates. This means you will now get new parts (or fixes) in the moment when they are created. No need to wait for the next Fritzing release anymore!

Critical bug fix for messed up PCB traces

We have been plagued by an annoying bug that occasionally caused PCB traces to get loose and flip around. It has been tricky to track down but it's finally fixed, sigh.. Plus, the fix will recover any files that have been mangled by this bug!

High-DPI display support

Fritzing now looks properly on High-DPI (aka Retina) displays on all platforms. It's not really high-res but scaling well according to the higher screen resolution.

Easier handling of self-created parts

Custom / self-made parts and bins used to be stored in a hidden location on your hard drive, which made it really annoying to edit them with an external tool such as Illustrator or a text editor.
They are now conveniently located in your ~/Documents/Fritzing folder for easy access!

Load/Save uncompressed fritzing files (.fz)

You can now alternatively save your fritzing sketches as an uncompressed set of files (.fz plus additional custom parts etc). This allows for proper versioning with systems like git or svn. Thanks to Sergio Oller (zeehio) for this contribution.

File icons

fzz, fzb, fzp, etc. now also have shiny file icons on Mac (thanks to scribblemaniac) and Ubuntu Linux (thanks to el-j - for the latter you have to run the install-fritzing.sh script)
