Re: Chocolatey - Windows Package Manager that FreeCAD can be installed from

Delta updates: A delta update is an update that only requires the user to download the code that has changed, not the whole program. I appreciate all the help, but I do require a little more assistance. Since Kunda1 mentions the dev updates are to be delta updates . The Chocolatey default location ...

Re: Chocolatey - Windows Package Manager that FreeCAD can be installed from

It would be good to have the users decide. Automatic, delta updates, would be the ideal. I'm sorry to say, but Automatic, delta updates is a different language to me. I don't know what you mean by it. If delta updates refers to something else other than https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases f...

Re: Chocolatey - Windows Package Manager that FreeCAD can be installed from

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18_pre I upload the builds manually so it's not quite "daily", maybe 4-5 times a week.
