As of this moment in time, the latest AppImage reads 0.19.22492.
0.19.22518
And under what function/clickable icon did you put it?
I don't have an icon so far. That's why you must start it from the menu.

Would someone volunteer to write some clear instructions on how to use this feature?

I've been reading along here for quite a while now and find the efforts very good. I offer myself as beta tester.
@Werner, please explain in a short example how I create a new surface between two surfaces which is tangential to the two original surfaces. As soon as I have understood how to do this, I will publish it in the German Forum.

Thank you very much and best regards

Shall I x-post to the UI/UX subforum for help on this ?

With this code snippet you can create the section curves as in the example:
I'm testing this.

Can this new object use as input a wire? Or should it be an individual edge only? That means it would only be usable with curved edges, like B-splines.

Only edges can be used. The actual algorithm is GeomFill_NSections that requires a list of curves. The curves are obtained from the selected edges.

Don't you remember that you've already used it and even made a video about it?

Would one of these be adequate? Roughly based on your code for the demo edges a few posts back and being consistent with the other Surface icons.
