After some rest it would be good to regroup and consider some of the things we've learned from this release that could make the next one easier.
Definitely!

Congrats everyone! This one was hard to get out, but we did it!

The 0.18.16110 macOS binary has disappeared from the 0.18.1 assets.

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18.1

Did it somehow disappear on its own? Was it purposely deleted? If the later, could it please be mentioned here so I have a heads up and I can update the Status of FreeCAD 0.18 Release announcement that's plastered all over the forum?

What should be done now? Do we say that it's no longer available and to download the 0.19 build instead?

I had recommended to not include it in the stable list, because it is anything but stable. The current 0.19 seems to be better, yet it still shows a crash. Until this is fixed I would recommend an older version.

Sorry, I had a local copy so I re-uploaded it. I didn't delete this, but did someone else? Should I delete it again and add something to tell users to use 0.19_pre? What should the wiki download page point to? And the homepage?

I had several non-repeatable crashes tonight, so I would not recmmend the current version. The latest "stable" was IIRC 15525, or even 15310. I still have them both.

OK I deleted it again.
We need to think how to handle this.

If I understood looo right, the next Qt version is promising. When will it be available?

I would vote to provide 15310 as "substitute for 0.18 stable" until we get something better.

Can you give me a markdown version to explain it? (and the .dmg :oops: )
