Thanks to @realthunder Link merge it seems now we have Assembly3 alive & kicking...
This is why I would suggest to use 1.0 for next stable relase (the now 0.19 development)chrisb wrote: ↑Thu Feb 20, 2020 7:38 am1.0 is no certificate, nor does it assure the presence of any features. Of course there are people - and always will be - who absolutely cannot use FreeCAD for some missing feature or other reason. Today I tried to prepare my breakfast with FreeCAD and it miserably failed, if anyone can confirm I may create a ticket.
Of course we can make a list with features to be included before going 1.0, and we can think of metrics to measure the quality - which may turn out to be near to impossible for code, features, and user experience.
But we might as well save the time and just let it go. Saying FreeCAD cannot be used in a professional environment is a lie: it is used by members of this forum to make a living. Saying FreeCAD cannot be used to build great models is a lie: there are such models in the Showcase forum. Saying a software has to provide this feature and that before being called 1.0 is ... well you may guess it. Look at programs such as the Windows notepad. You could almost say it had no features at all, and it was included since more than 20 years.
I'm posting here some reference to be explored later on.
http://libregraphicsworld.org/blog/entr ... kscape-1-0After almost 17 years in the making, Inkscape 1.0 is out. Let's be fair: this is one of those cases when the humble version number doesn't nearly represent what's actually in the box. The software was perfectly usable right at the point of forking from Sodipodi back in 2003, I'm speaking as the eyewitness here. The v1.0 release should've happened years ago but the team took a very conservative approach.
