    Set minimum line width.
    Selectively display single layer pad, multi-layer pad, and via.

fixed a few bugs.

Main Features:
Vector conversion from Gerber and Protel ASCII PCB  to PDF and PostScript[TM] .

Rasterization from Gerber and Protel ASCII PCB to TIFF, BMP and RID formats at extremely high resolution. Up to 30,000 DPI has been tested with excellent performance. 

Fully supports RS-274X standard, including G36/G37 polygon, arch, step&repeat, and custom D codes.

You can group a lot of files into a single page in WYSIWYG(what you see is what you get) fashion.

You can move, rotate, flip horizontally, flip vertically, toggle negative/positive polarity of, and duplicate any file on the page.
