Did you saw the last version of Eagle Ver 8?

After a quick review, I found some major changes:

-You must sign-in/create an account in the first run of the free version.

-A new tool called "Past Block Design", you can add a complete block of connected components (both in schematic and PCB).
It's very similar to group copy/past, but it's now organized in a new tool with a widget. 
To create a new design block. you can save-as your design as .dbl file from file->save as design block (you can save just some selected parts).

-BGA auto-router. 

- Logo is totally new and old social media accounts related to" cadsoft" are deleted or changed to a new one like:https://www.facebook.com/cadsoftcomputer/ and https://twitter.com/ADSKEAGLE .

- They migrated all the old website https://cadsoft.io/ to http://www.autodesk.com/products/eagle/overview. 

Best
