DraftSight for Linux now in beta
Somewhat later than expected Dassault Systemes finally released beta Linux version of DraftSight — their free (gratis) computer-aided drafting package. The beta is available for Ubuntu, as well as Fedora, SuSE and Mandriva users.
Draftsight is one of very few 2D CAD systems for Linux that feature support for DWG industry standard de-facto. Windows and Mac builds are available as well. You can download it here. Official promo video goes below.
