Installation, schematic and PCB file creation/editing/printout (CUPS-PDF), PCB updates from schematic, PCB configuration wizard, autorouter, cross-probe, text with various fonts (slow to load properties dialog probably due to large number of system fonts), Cu polygons, copying to clipboard (pasted to Gimp), DXF output (verified with DraftSight).
What does not
Order submission to Advanced Circuits fails. According to the PDF guide it is supposed to generate a *.fab file and open a web browser to the upload page at 4pcb.com with automatic login. The fab file is created (actually just a copy of the *.pcb named *.pcb.fab) but an unhandled page fault occurs and the app aborts without opening the web browser. There are several URLs it bounces through before reaching the file upload page but it only accepts ZIP archives if opened directly. They may be able to accept the fab file via email but not in an automated fashion.
Schematic and PCB objects leave a trail of pixels when moved. A screen refresh removes them.
The viewer for the built-in help does not accept keyboard input. The main app seems to retain keyboard control. This does not affect any other app on the host desktop.
What was not tested
Probably a few minor functions missed.
