I am pleased to announce that version 6.06 of the GNU Electric VLSI Design
System is available. Visit us at www.staticfreesoft.com for downloads and
This release has many minor improvements and some notable major features:
> The ability to speed-up Design Rule Checking by using multiple
processors (a multithreaded DRC).
> Better Network Consistency Checking (Electric's LVS system).
> Improvements to the MOSIS CMOS design-rules, including a scalable
transistor (a limited form of parameterized layout).
> A very early Mac OS/X implementation (still buggy: needs help).
Note: Static Free provides precompiled binaries of GNU Electric for a fee;
see the web site for details.
