Release Notes: This release adds a new edit in place command to allow descending the hierarchy by name in addition to the existing point based EIP command. PDF generation has added the transparent color model to the existing overlay color model. Programmable cells may now use a closed shape as a reference. Closed shapes are useful when creating a well tap isolation ring object as an example. Closed shape TLG's can be marked as splittable. There is a GIF animation on the Web site showing the result of splitting a well tap ring to allow a gap for wiring over a well tap ring.
Release Notes: This release adds a new GUI mode using a tkcon for the console instead of an xterm. The tkcon was modified to incorporate the non-window specific menubar items as well as the XY display. Other changes include a new legend option when creating PDF documents of layouts and a new option to the layer display control window to only display layers in the current layout view. Some new device generators were added to support DMOS and HVMOS structures. Lastly, the free layout viewer has a port to the raspberry pi platform.
Release Notes: This release includes new capabilities in the DRC/LVS, enabling checks of most 0.18 micron processes. A new command has been added to the editor to move objects between hierarchical levels in a single operation. The cut/paste command has been modified to have multiple buffers. Each buffer is assigned a user-defined name so you can easily select between buffers. The stream out command layer map added a new directive so you can specify a unique layer to write text associated with pin objects. With this change, different layer mappings may be assigned for geometry, text, and pin (the text part) objects.
