Testing: Eagle Import Plugins

The KiCad project is proud to announce the support for importing Eagle projects. This is the outcome of work to complete the Eagle schematic file plugin and integrate it with the Eagle board file plugin.

From the new "Import Project" menu entry in the KiCad launcher users may now select an Eagle schematic or board file and the new project name and location, after which the corresponding Eagle files will be imported respectively into EEschema and PcbNew.

The import plugins are now available for testing in the nightly builds and will be included in the version 5 release.

This work has been made possible by generous donations to the CERN & Society Foundation in support of the KiCad Project. Special acknowledgements go to Alejandro Garcia Montoro and Russell Oliver for the effort they put into the development.
