Re: Release of v0.17

... Debian's new GitLab instance at salsa.debian.org, which means learning the git-buildpackage tool gbp and revising the package to use it (via https://salsa.debian.org/kkremitzki-guest/opencascade) but hopefully the package will be available in the next 2 weeks. I am surprised something like this...

Re: Roadmap toward 0.17 Release

So what is the timeframe for 0.17? The impetus is that we have a bit of a backlog on macOS because the Homebrew package management team recently deprecated the entire science port repo that provided many dependencies that we need (e.g. opencascade, matplotlib, med-file, orocos-kdl, etc.). We need to...

Re: Opencascade for the masses?

Here's an update: Andrey, the project manager for Opencascade, worked with me behind the scenes to provide an anonymous means to download the source code. There was a bug in their gitweb interface that caused the downloaded tarball to vary by 1 byte that caused the varying sha problem that I mention...

Re: Opencascade for the masses?

Thanks but something like that won't work because each separate download yields a different sha so the git snapshot process must mutate some of the tarball content slightly. Interesting. md5deep doesn't find any differences between two downloads so I wonder if it is simply some metadata on the tarb...

Re: Opencascade for the masses?

As oce is not yet adopting occ version 7.0 and higher, we could try to create a kind of community fork of occ7.2 on github. @Quaoar provided the contact information for the Opencascade Kernel project manager. I have reached out to him and he is interested in finding a solution to support Homebrew a...

Re: Opencascade for the masses?

http://git.dev.opencascade.org/gitweb/?p=occt.git;a=shortlog P.S. Downloading a snapshot by for example using wget highly likely should be achievable. Thanks but something like that won't work because each separate download yields a different sha so the git snapshot process must mutate some of the ...

Re: Opencascade for the masses?

I've had good success getting typo patches submitted via http://www.salome-platform.org/forum/forum_9 It's safe to say that the OCC Devs keep an eye on the forums. But maybe a personal more direct way is more ideal? Thanks. @saso pointed me to Quaor who provided the contact information for the Open...

Opencascade for the masses?

Long story short, the Homebrew macOS package management team will not accept an opencascade formula that does not download the source tarball from the official opencascade site but the opencascade download site requires credentials to download the tarball - not possible in a formula. Does anyone kno...

Re: MacOS: FreeCAD 0.17.12322 Qt5 not starting

That is because that is a new build that worked. I restarted the build right after I saw chrisb's post. Ah, thanks Peter! That indeed explains it. There is an actual problem that has been going on for a long time. I don't fully understand it, but sometimes the bundler script fails to find libjpeg t...
