  1. Manufacturing panel information: the panel file is an optional file.
    It has been added (comparatively to IDF 2.0) to allow the exchange of manufacturing panel information. The panel file contains the physical description of the manufacturing panel and the location of the boards and components on that panel.

  2. Annotations: a new section is added to the file.
    It contains notes for the design that can be displayed to allow the electrical and mechanical designers to communicate additional information about the design entities. They are not intended for manufacturing purpose.

  3. Offset: the offset field represents the mounting offset for a component onto the board.
    It is also available for board mounting offset onto the panel.

  4. Properties: an optional record specifies properties for the component such as capacitance, resistance, tolerance, power_max, etc. as well as user-defined attributes.
