Observing the same thing on OSX for new version.
2015-12-02 18:48   
Having the same issue. Dwarves only seem to equip armor if I specify a specific armor to wear.
2015-12-03 07:57   
@Harold76 noticed the same, but they 1) only wear one piece of armor and ignore the other assigned pieces and 2) their weapon becomes "invisible" as in they pick up a sword, but it's not visible in their inventory at all even though zooming in to the specific sword from the Stocks screen will point right at the dwarf

Can confirm with my fort as well. More than enough armor, refuse to wear it. I'll post the save and mess around with it some more later when I get back home.

In my case, assigning full suits of armour to a squad via 'specific item' got them to equip a breastplate, mail shirt and greaves, but not the boots, gauntlets and helmet. Maybe a problem with the 'replace clothing' setting?
2015-12-06 00:06   
I wanted to add that I can't find any common thing in my dwarfs for armor. They'll all equip a weapon (individual's choice) and shield (metal shield), but no armor unless it's set to specific pieces.

Some of those will still equip nothing (despite the green check), some a few things (2x steel shirts, 1 greaves, spear and shield). One or two will do stranger things, like strap their weapon to the upper body and instead wield a book and shield.

Confirm here as well. Assigning individual bits of armor to each soldier takes forever.

The "replace clothing" not working properly seems like a likely cause for this bug indeed
