KiCad 7.0.2 Release

The KiCad project is proud to announce the second series 7 bug fix release. The 7.0.2 stable version contains critical bug fixes and other minor improvements since the previous release.

A list of all of the fixed issues since the 7.0.1 release can be found on the KiCad 7.0.2 milestone page. This release contains several critical bug fixes so please consider upgrading as soon as possible.

Version 7.0.2 is made from the 7.0 branch with some cherry picked changes from the development branch.

Packages for Windows, macOS, and Linux are available or will be in the very near future. See the KiCad download page for guidance.

Thank you to all developers, packagers, librarians, document writers, translators, and everyone else who helped make this release possible.
