Post 5.0 notes
It is already a week since 5.0 has been released, meaning it is a good moment to sum up the release.
Many Windows users have reported problems, most frequently related to wxWidgets assert dialogs showing up in pcbnew. The problem has been resolved, therefore if you still experience any issues please reinstall KiCad using the current Windows installer.
There is still one problem that has appeared very late in the 5.
