Version 1.3.1 beta 1

Post by Andrew » Fri Jul 30, 2004 2:10 pm

We've uploaded a beta of version 1.3.1. Since this beta fixes many issues with DXF import, we thought it was worth making it public for anyone who is having difficulties importing drawings.
The major issues were with blocks created in AutoCAD and text rotation.

The link to the Beta downloads is ... -131b1.sit.

These are the complete release notes for beta 1:
