Free DIPTRACE Upgrade

I've been using DIPTRACE for a number a years now and am a big fan of it. I was previously an EAGLE user and struggled with the learning curve.
The folks at DIPTRACE are offering a free upgrade to LMR forum members. This is not offered on their website.

Commrcial Inventory listings

Rant Alert!

I like the avalibility of descriptions of various parts provided by vendors and the user feed back on them. 

I also have no objection to vendors posting on LMR.

It is really too many to properly evaluate at one time.

I would suggest a 5 per day limit



P.S. Obviously the clerk at the vendor was told to get it done by Friday and finally finished the project.  VOILA!
