This topic was meant to be a general announcement for newcomers trying to know what version of FreeCAD to download.
Maintaining it has been a struggle. The major issue is the lack of discipline of forum regulars, who persist in starting discussions that have no relevance for newcomers as if this was a "regular" topic. The result is a general announcement topic that is 4 pages long with much diluted pertinent and useful info for users of *all* platforms.
I had already asked once to get the topic cleaned up before. Rather than having to ask once again which annoys me to no end, I choose to shut it down instead.
From now on, I will leave moderators to answer to newcomers' questions about what FreeCAD version to download and where.
