Topic hijacked, I'm no longer interested in trying to maintain it

Postby NormandC » Wed Apr 10, 2019 2:30 am

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.

:roll:

"Windows
The installer for v0.18.1 has yet to be released. An initial 0.18 installer can be downloaded here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18"

Not there!

Off course not you are at 0.18. if you had pressed the 0.18.1 link than you should go through https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18.1 and find some downloadable files...

As stated here, these installers are named with the wrong hash. I was waiting for a reply before putting the links here.

Also, why was the 0.18 installer deleted from the 0.18 tag?

Edit: I updated the first post with the current links anyway.

I was having a real issue with versions 0.16, 0.17, and 0.18 with importing a SVG image as a geometry. I'm happy to report that the problem is solved in release 0.18.1

Great news! Thank you!
Will there be a portable version "...WIN-x64-portable.7z" ?

You can always use the latest daily: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/ or install the stable and copy the complete FreeCAD folder.

I am working on the portable versions.

A note however. Beginning with 0.18.x the Win installer allows installation for a single user that does not require admin rights.
https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18.1
The installer also allows to make a desktop shortcut and registers the file association. So it writes some more stuff to the registry. The uninstaller works very well to remove anything that the installer writes.

macOS
A 18.1 binary has been created, please test and report issues. Direct download link: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/rele ... stable.dmg



the link ends in a 404 github page "page not found" (I just tried now)
