New(ish) FOSS CAD software project

Those of you interested in CAD software may remember the old open-source QCAD software made by RibbonSoft. It was nice software, but unfortunately wasn’t able to make enough money to remain viable.

Well, a new developer has forked the code into a new project called “CADuntu” and has been porting it over to Qt4. The project is only about a month and a half old, but I was surprised that it compiled first try and seems to be relatively stable for such a young port. (i.e. no crashes or major errors yet)

Pleasantly surprised to see that it had a Windblows version… gave it a quick check out and even at beta-2 it looks quite nice. Good stuff!
