Hot on the heels of stable release 4.0.3, there is a new stable release of KiCad. The 4.0.4 stable version contains a few critical fixes that slipped through the cracks in the last release.

The stable release version 4.0.4 is made from the stable 4.0 branch with bug fixes cherry picked from the development branch of KiCad.

KiCad binaries are available or will be available in the near future for download for Windows, OSX and Linux, see the download page for guidance.

Instructions for packagers can be found on the download page describing how to build from source and its subpages.

Thank you to all developers, packagers, librarians, document writers, translators, and everyone else who helped make this release possible.
