I recommend DipTrace. I've been using it for 2 years and I love it. It's quite easy to use, very intuitive and has all the features I need.
Some of my projects:
Shield for DS1337+, DS1624 and AT24C1024B (RTC, temp & mem): http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php/topic,126197.0.html
CHDK Camera remote shutter (BT, IR, USB): http://forum.arduino.cc/index.php?topic=295377.0

What are the features you need ?

What an irony here?

We as a community say we are dedicated and thrive for a revolution with Hardware sector and so we understood how hardware designs should be made free so that it is available for anyone to use that design and that gives freedom for the people. That is the core of Arduino project as we know.

How come this is freedom, when we supply the schematic design that is readable properly only with a closed or non-free software like Eagle?

If as a community, Arduino isn't giving the entire freedom to people without creating a vendor dependency, then what are we committed to? This is no way freedom until the formats compatibility is also liberated.

There is also this one https://github.com/freetronics/freetronics_kicad_library

But when we have decided Arduino designs to be free, when we decided Arduino IDE to be Free Software under GNU GPL v2, we should also fix this.

I am very glad someone started this thread. Let us make sure, everyone is heard. +1 for KiCAD or any other Free software for that sake.

Open Hardware Designs + Free Software === Freedom
Open Hardware Designs + Non-free / Closed source Software !== Freedom

stragulus

+1 For KiCad, Open Standards, Open Source.

SUPERN

+1 for Kicad.

Can you please consider to open source at least the shield so that we can build our own?
That would be great as it is the last lock for using Arduino widely in a real world!

What do you mean, "the last lock"?

There is an "arduino shield" component for DipTrace, you now. You can always come to the dark side of the power!

+1 for KiCAD --> We need this open source support for the sake of the very definition of Arduino's values!
