Re: Improve visibility of 0.19 on Downloads page

I was referring to the Downloads page available directly from the home page, but perhaps I am mistaken. I see. An additional problem here is that the development link links to https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases instead of https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.19_pre where the a...

Re: how to obtain the global decimals for a script

For a script I want to get the number of decimals the user set in the FC preferences for the units. parms = App.ParamGet("User parameter:BaseApp/Preferences/Units") parms.GetInt('UserSchema') parms.GetInt('Decimals') EDIT: Fixed second line, Schema gives the unit system, not needed in your case.

Apparently there is already a version 0.19 around.
0.19 builds are still "developer builds" but we are close to a feature freeze for the 0.19 release.
Binaries are available here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/rele ... g/0.19_pre

Re: Choose the Install or the Portable version for Windows?

I have written this post because I think that it would be useful to have some discussion on the forum about the advantages of the Installable and the Portable forms. Both versions use the exact same binaries, and both will write the needed .cfg stuff to %appdata%/FreeCAD The installer will offer so...

Re: conda: win: build-errors 20191201

Ahh, so I bet before your fix FreeCAD was using the static boost libs, when looo and enabled PCL, PCL's config forced the static boost libs, hence the same error. I wonder if -D Boost_NO_BOOST_CMAKE=TRUE works? The key doesn't exist, so maybe when creating it from the command line it's necessary to...

This is absolutely the best way to approach this problem: nicely done wmayer!
Does anyone know what the github webgui uses? Or if can be configured to use the -w switch?

I really think this is an issue on the code base and not on the packaging...
Thanks for testing, I'm always worried I've mucked something up. ;)

On my system
Can you try to build FreeCAD with VS2019 using the Libpack?
I will eventually try this myself BUT [excuse] I'm still on Win7 and I'm preparing for when I bork my system with the Win10 upgrade [excuse]
