Release version 0.9.4


Maintenance release

This is a maintenance release. There are few new features, but we fixed some of the bugs.

Critical bug fix for autorouter

Fixed a memory corruption that would random crashes. Thanks to Filipp Mikoian for your help.

Color coded wires
An new option was added to automatically colorize wires according to their length.
Transport Layer Security

Long overdue, Fritzing now uses TLS for all links. The Fritzing website continues to allow http access to support older Fritzing versions.

Fix a bug where Fritzing would potentially search the whole disk for parts

Depending on installation location, Fritzing might try to search many subfolders for its parts. Depending on the machine's speed and directory structure, this would take a long time, during which Fritzing would show "Application does not respond" or similar. The workaround was to wait about ten minutes until it finishes, as it only happens on the first start. This annoyed many users, our apologies, this behavior should be fixed now.

No 32 bit builds
We don't provide 32 bit builds of Fritzing anymore. It might still be possible to build for 32 bit.
Under the hood

We dropped Qt4 suport

Continuous builds for Linux, MacOS and Windows. This means faster release cycles in the future.

Use libgit 0.28.1

Known issues:

Windows and macOS: We did not buy certificates to sign Fritzing.
This means that users might see warnings when starting the App for the first time.

Windows: Some dlls were missing in earlier versions of this package: msvcp140.dll , vcruntime140.dll , and OpenSSL . They have been added now.

Linux: Please follow the instructions on the download page. Fritzing can be started directly after extracting the archive. Do not run the install script. If the install script is run as root, Fritzing can after that only be used as root user.
