Isn't this a new Draft tool that was only merged in master after 0.18 was released? (Edit: yep, it's only in current 0.19)

How did you install FreeCAD?

I get no such message with the package from the freecad-stable PPA when running it from the terminal.

The difference in your and mine is ONLY of Locale, which should not be the reason for any such message.

Ah, my mistake.. went too fast in transferring this command from BIM to Arch and forgot to still properly support older versions. This should be fixed now.

Yes. Fixed.

I did:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install freecad

It updated freecad. On

$ freecad

no such message (of unknown command) got.

Now installed version is 2:0.18.1+dfsg1~201904282142~ubuntu18.04.1

However, Help -> About does not show any difference (from the previous installation):

Often, debian packages propose updates that do not differ from source but fix issues specific to packaging. But in this specific case, the latest update also provides patches from upstream freecad.
