Hi,

since the code now seems to be "mature enough", I've pushed a patch which 
makes the new gnetlist frontend the default.  In theory, you shouldn't 
notice any changes (except maybe more useful warning messages).  In 
practice, however, there are almost certainly some bugs introduced while 
refactoring the code which haven't been discovered yet.

Please take a moment to see if everything works fine for you.  I've timed 
this patch so I'm available for troubleshooting for the next couple of 
days.  If you experience some issue, please don't hesitate to report it so 
it can be fixed as soon as possible.

A good way to manually verify whether the generated netlist is correct is 
the `pcbfwd' backend installed by PCB.  You can run gnetlist once each 
using the old and new frontend and compare the generated netlist, ignoring 
the order of the lines:

     $ diff <(sort old.net) <(sort new.net)

If there are differences, please verify if they are errors or not and 
report them if necessary.

Please note that two weeks ago, some of the hierarchy RC settings have 
been removed.  If you experience a Guile error when running gnetlist and 
haven't before, this may be caused by one of these settings in your 
configuration.

Roland
