Can you give me a markdown version to explain it? (and the .dmg :oops: )
Sorry, but this is beyond my English, I don't understand :( .
Here are the links for 15310 and 15525.

Thanks for the binary, I will post 15310.
Markdown is the format that the description on github uses. https://www.markdownguide.org/cheat-sheet/
For https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/edit/0.18.1
The OSX block is this

Code: Select all

### MacOSX
Binary developer builds (no compiling necessary) are available. Download the highest revision of the .dmg
I need some words to explain why we are using this version. If you can do it in markdown I can just copy and paste. Anyway the words are most important. Anything beyond a few sentences and people stop reading. I am not good at this, I either omit details or ramble.

I will write something tonight (~12hours), as I cannot do that in between two other tasks.

@sgrogan

Note that if you will upload a .dmg file to 0.18.1, Travis will likely replace it with the one made from Conda packages in less than 24h. Therefore best to upload it to 0.18 for now. And for 0.18 to serve as a place for such binaries.

P.S. What is special about 15310 and 15525 releases? Are they Conda based or somebody else compiled them in the past by using Homebrew dependencies?

As far as I know, 15310 was not conda based, but what is more important I didn't have any crashes. I replaced it due to some new stuff, I wanted to have.

I guess 15310 was done with brew.
15525 was made in a similar way like @sgrogan does the windows builds based on conda-packages.
everything after 15525 should be packaged similar to the appimage.
please help with my conda-packaging efforts: https://liberapay.com/looooo/

I would provide both versions.
I didn't test it, but this should just give a bullet list with two entries:

Code: Select all

Currently we provide two versions for MacOS:
- 0.18.15310 is slightly outdated compared to the official release, but runs very stable. We recommend to use this version, unless you want to use some functions not included here.
- 0.18.16110 is the official release version. However, this version crashes on some MacOS systems unexpectedly. If you use this version, save often!
If we provide only one, then the text would read:

Code: Select all

Version 0.18.15310 is slightly outdated compared to the official release, but runs very stable. We recommend to use this version, because the official version may crash unexpectedly.

OK, therefore it's likely safe to assume Qt 5.6.2 Conda package, by itself, isn't the main problem here. I made a small change and first i guess @chrisb should test if the latest FreeCAD 0.18/0.19 .dmg from releases page still crash as often on his side or not, after we can discuss this further.

I'm ready to test. Any idea when it will be available?
