2.2.0 Release Candidate 4

Choose a tag to compare

This pre-release is presumably the last one.
When no issues arise, this will be the new release 2.2.0 soon.

For latest changes see

A build for Apple M1 hardware failed, but you can use the x86 DMG package too, it runs on M1 hardware via Rosetta 2 translation layer.
See #1548

2.2.0 Release Candidate 3

Choose a tag to compare

This pre-release is mainly for our Linux users.
It provides our first AppImage for Linux, which will be built now automatically with each push to master.
The latest build for Linux will be available at Continuous Build from now.

There were also some notable improvements from libdxfrw, which should make DWG reading more stable. This is attractive for all user.

macOS users please take care, that there are 2 packages, one for Big Sur and one for older ones.
Probably the Big Sur package runs on Monterey too, if not, please report in the forum or open an issue here.

2.2.0 Release Candidate 2

Choose a tag to compare

More than 280 commits since 2.2.0-rc1 and too much delay, but here it is, the next big step to final 2.2.0 release.
We fixed some really serious bugs with DWG reading, what hopefully leads to much less issues and crashes when opening DWG files.
There may be still some issues with DWG we want to address and fix for the final 2.2.0 release.

Please find here the binary packages for Windows and macOS.
And hopefully soon also an AppImage for Linux, any help to achieve this is welcome.

As the work continues, have a look at our SourceForge site too.
There you can find nightly builds for Windows and macOS, which should be tested and may have issues fixed from this release candidate.
For Windows XP:
For Windows 7-10:
For macOS:

Our online manual at is almost up to date with this release candidate.

2.2.0 Release Candidate

Choose a tag to compare

There were more than 250 commits since 2.2.0-alpha, thus it was overdue to get rid of the alpha in the tag now.
With some more improvements in the last couple weeks, we switch directly to Release Candidate as the response from community is, that the master branch is stable.
There are only some minor changes in the line before the final 2.2.0 release.
