If you are an existing EAGLE user, whether of the freeware, Light, Standard or Professional edition, we assure you that our existing relationship is unaffected by the purchase. We will continue to develop the software and to offer the same support and service as before - from the same places, using the same number and with the same friendly expertise. The freeware version of EAGLE will also continue to be available. The only changes you should see will be positive ones, as Premier Farnell enables us to invest more time and development expertise to improve EAGLE even further.

hopefully this will result in a better Library and Add Part system.
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!
