Re: KiCad or ??

The code for the "routing tool we all liked to use" is up on github as well.

I don't know that we want to get into this here in detail but - the person who is making the claim of copyright issues had a less-capable routing tool written by the person who wrote "the routing tool we all liked to use", many years ago, *in another programming language* (not Java).

As the two software packages are in different languages, written many years apart, with different features, I don't see how they can have a legitimate copyright claim.

Has it been decided what we are going to do about the lack of routing software because of the issue with freerouting.net?   I can go either way (I have squirreled away the java code - though it might make people nervous with the legal implications) - DipTrace does not look too bad if we can use the non profit version of the software.

I ask because I am going to start doing some prototyping and don't want to have to enter the schematics twice
