Bugs/Issues Blocking v0.19 Release (+ WB/Addon devs check-in about Roadmap for 0.19 release)

Postby Kunda1 » Sat Oct 10, 2020 12:02 pm

Note: This first post will be edited frequently.
This thread is intended to organize the tracker and the community toward an 0.19 release.
It will be tracking:
  • priority bugs that are blocking release
  • responses from various Workbench and Addon authors to report the status of their projects prior to v0.19 release.
  • translations of FreeCAD (asking language teams to review and approve their translations) prior to v0.19 release
Release Blocking Bugs
  • issue #3340: Massive memory leak in Draft
  • issue #4247: GeometryCurvePy::intersect / GeometryCurvePy::intersectCC Segmentation Fault with OCC 7.4
  • issue #4296: crash in sketcher when deleting external reference on broken sketch
  • issue #4416: "Cannot normalize null vector" in Draft2Sketch
  • issue #4442: Random repeated segfault on macos
  • issue #4453: Error triggered when trying to clear the property by the property editor and Link dialog
  • issue #4456: Regression : Part.Plane.Intersect do not accept plane as argument

Please add:
- auto completion of expressions using named constraints (regression)
- fixing GUI for PartDesign holes using counterbore.

Sure thing! Do they have tickets and/or threads associated with them? I'd love to keep track of that as well just in case other devs want to jump in and fix

hole feature: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=50611.

expressions: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 07#p331207, there is already a pull request by realthunder fixing it. You probably know better about open PRs.

Realthunder recommended to merge the group change PR. I have no idea how important it is, others may comment on this.

Following an idea from vocx, I would like to discuss the idea of offering Bounties for speeding up making 0.19 stable. This would need some commitment, that we have all of the known issues on the table.

I'm down for it but...2 issues:
This would also need a time frame. And that info would need wmayer's feedback.
It could put more pressure on wmayer to review and merge code since he is doing the lion's share portion of it.

Checking in with all active workbench devs, how are things going in regards to v0.19 release?

Except for issue #4416 (Draft_Draft2Sketch problem), I don't think Draft and Arch have major issues.

This bug only affects certain shapes in an imported SVG, so it's not extremely critical, although it definitely should be fixed.

The Arch Fence tool is also relatively broken because we changed the Draft PathArray methods, but since not many people have complained about Arch Fence we have ignored it. This tool was created in v0.19, so it wouldn't affect v0.18 files anyway. The tool's author hasn't provided any updates since he introduced the tool last year.

And by the way, issue #3340 is something that I don't recognize. I don't think it's a blocking issue.

Thanks for the feedback. At some point soon we need devs to bump issues from 0.19 to 0.20 roadmap target. Is this something you can fo for Draft ?
