KiCad 5.0.1 Release

The KiCad project is proud to announce the latest series 5 stable release of KiCad. The 5.0.1 stable version contains critical bug fixes and other minor improvements since the 5.0.0 release. It also includes improved footprint, symbol, and 3D model libraries, translations, and documentation. A list of all of the fixed bugs since the 5.0.0 release can be found on the KiCad 5.0.1 milestone page. This release contains several critical bug fixes so please consider upgrading as soon as possible.

Warning Please note that a last minute bug was found in the Eagle schematic import feature too late to be fixed in this release which is expected to be fixed in release 5.0.2. If you need to convert Eagle schematics you may want to hold off upgrading until 5.0.2.

Version 5.0.1 is made from the lp:kicad/5.0 branch with some cherry picked changes from the development branch.
