    • Tests component and trace integrity.
    • Tests for unplaced components specified in the netlist.
    • Tests for presence and integrity of board edge and that all parts are inside the board edge.
    • Tests via drill ranges.

What works

Almost everything works.

- Installation works ok,
- Analog simulation works ok,
- Digital simulation works ok,
- schematic capture
- pcb capture works ok (even calling ARES from ISIS and interprocess communication where ISIS sends all the netlists and stuff to ARES works properly !!! -this was not working properly with older versions of wine-)
- export to PDF works ok
- export to Excellon works ok
- printing works ok

What does not

Sometimes some parts of menu background gets "messed up" (pick up the image below the menu), I initially believed it has to do with compiz but exactly same behaviour is with any other desktop/window manager. Does not affect work at all.

Print dialog does not show the "circuit" in the preview image .. does not really affect how printing works.

USB simulation does not work. When you plug in your simulated USB device, host just ignores it.


What was not tested

I tested everything I could think of.

Additional Comments

apart from usb simulation part, it works better then on XP :) Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating defintions.
