Obround footprint pads might have wrong orientation #424
VERSION / OS / ENVIRONMENT
Obround footprint pads keep their orientation even after swapping width and height.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
The pad should be rendered differently (90° rotated) after swapping width and height.
The pad is rendered the same as before swapping width and height.
The root cause seems to be a bug in
I'm not sure if we can fix this bug without breaking existing packages and projects. If it breaks something, I think we shouldn't fix the bug in the 0.1.1 release but wait until the 0.2.0 release (which will introduce a new file format anyway and thus we can perform a backwards compatible upgrade).
I checked this now, and it turned out that the Gerber output was not affected by this bug, so "only" the editors have shown the wrong orientation. Which does not mean this bug is not critical (inconsistencies between editor view and Gerber output are always critical bugs), but due to this fact we can't fix it in a backward compatible manner anyway, thus I think we should fix it in the 0.1.1 release.
Fortunately none of the packages in our official libraries are affected by this bug ;)
