I second that. Eagle used to be the only one that was stable and had a decent library. Then KiCAD gained a source of development funding with CERN (yhe European physics lab) and they added some paid developers and KiCAD "took off". They leap frogged Eagle in only a couple years.
But Eagle was stangnating and not being developed formany years, then Autodesk bought Eagle and now Eagle has a billion dollar company funding further development. Autodesk's stated goal is to closly integrate Eagle with Fusion because they say (and I agree) that modern products are a combination of hardware and circuits. I very good example is a cell phone or a video camera or a notebook computer. these are the kinds of products people buld and sell now. I thought this know of integrated electronics/mechanics was not for hobbyists but then I find I'm doing it even in prototypes. I just made a crash bumper for acrobat with integrated micro-switches and hardware switch debouncing. It is a very simple device, not unlike the "home" switch on a mill Just switches, an RC filters and diode and come connectors but non the less it is integrated mechanical/electronics with electronics, springs and hard and rubber parts. All so a little machine can stop if it collides with a wall or someone's foot. That said, I move other to KiCad a while back. I and can export and import PCB models, Yes integrated would be nice but i don't chance PCBs that often.
