14 Years QCAD

Postby andrew » Tue Oct 08, 2013 10:27 am

Today is something like QCAD's 14th birthday: 14 years ago, QCAD version 1.0.0 was released.

You can still find the original change log on the archive.org web site at:

One of the first public announcements on Linux Today is also still online at:

I wonder if some of the users of those first days are still around?

I had a look at the program screenshots...what a long way from from that period!

Les captures d'écran ne donnent qu'une petite idée du chemin parcouru. Bravo pour avoir développé un produit performant, très convivial et surtout accessible sans se ruiner.

keep on goinn'
