PythonCAD PythonCAD gets revival and a new alpha release

The PythonCAD project, a free computer-aided drafting tool, is finally back from oblivion.

The newly released alpha4 of r38 is the first official release after some years of very little activity.

R38 is a rewrite of user interface into Qt. The new team also rewrote much of kernel. Not all of R37 functionality is in place yet, you can refer to the roadmap page to get a better idea of what’s possible and what isn’t.

One interesting feature of the new PythonCAD is that everything is written to a database, so no changes are lost should the application crash. And of course it opens up new possibilities regarding access to projects.

The point of releasing alpha4 is merely stating that the project is alive and finding early testers.
