Version 2.0.4 is released for Logisim, a graphical design and simulation tool for logic circuits. The biggest new feature is the addition of a "facing" attribute for all gates and customized circuits, allowing gates and subcircuits to be placed facing in any direction. Additionally, version 2.0.4 introduces a keyboard shortcut for changing the direction of a supported component by simply pressing arrow keys prior to adding it into the circuit. The ability to rotate gates has been one of the most frequently requested features since starting the development of Logisim 2.0.
Additionally, the new version repairs a number of bugs, particularly several around the logging facility introduced in version 2.0.3, as well as another somewhat irritating error associated with the random delay noise added in version 2.0.1.
Logisim is currently used by many colleges and universities around the world to teach concepts about computer organization and computer architecture. Additional information about the program is available at http://www.cburch.com/logisim/. Logisim can be downloaded through SourceForge.net at http://sourceforge.net/projects/circuit/.
