A German language mailing list was created. In order to join, visit [[https://sourceforge.net/projects/xtrkcad-fork/lists/xtrkcad-fork-german]].

The new version has extended the .xtc file formats for new features and so can produce objects that V4 and below can't interpret. V4 files are fully upward compatible, however. We strongly suggest taking a copy of your files in case of trouble before using V5.

=====General=====
""XTrackCAD"" is a CAD program for designing model railroad layouts.

Using it, you can
- Design layouts in any scale and gauge,
- Use the predefined libraries for many popular brands of turnouts to help you get started easily,
- Add your own favorite components,
- Manipulate track much like you would with actual flex-track to modify, extend and join tracks and turnouts,
- Test your design by running trains, including picking them up and moving them with the mouse.
- At any point you can print the design in a scale of your choice. When printed in 1:1 scale the printout can be used as a template for laying the track to build your dream layout.
- Learning ""XTrackCAD"" is made easy with the extensive on-line help and demonstrations.

""XTrackCAD"" is available for free on Mac, Windows and Linux.
