TinyCAD 2.70.00 Beta Release Scheduled

The TinyCAD 2.70.00 Alpha Release is now in use by over 660 users with only a few bugs reported. The biggest problem that anyone is having is associated with system specific configurations of the obsolete Microsoft Jet/DAO/Access database drivers that are used to process symbol library databases.

The Beta version of 2.70.00 will be released on or before Monday, March 9th, 2009. It differs from the Alpha release in that it has the identified alpha release bugs fixed, it has performance enhancements to support faster dragging of high pin count symbols, and, most importantly, it switches the symbol library format from Microsoft Jet/DAO/Access compatible to SQLite3 compatible. SQLite3 has equivalent functionality to the Microsoft Jet .mdb format, but is an open source small footprint module that is up to date with Windows and does not require any external packages to be installed correctly in order to work.
