Canonical do not hold actualizations for LibreCAD. Some actualizations may be given by the Ubuntu community. (Canonical não fornece atualizações para LibreCAD. Algumas atualizações podem ser prestadas pela comunidade Ubuntu.)
But if LibreCAD can be updated to newer and stable versions, please just let me know.

Compiler: GNU GCC 4.6.3
Qt Version: 4.8.1
Compiled on: Jan 12 2014

I'll create this folder and specify its path there.
This folder is intended to have some DXF files. What exactly these files have? Lots of blocks loaded?
