please test - Windows build for FreeCAD 0.19.3 available

Post by uwestoehr »

The next maintenance release of FreeCAD 0.19 is basically ready. It contains only bugfixes, no new features. If you are interested in the particular fixes, have a look at this list:
https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=57659

Before releasing, we provide release builds to get feedback from you that everything works nicely. If you are on Windows, here is a Windows installer for FreeCAD 0.19.3:

Note: This a test build, please report any issues you encounter here. Don't use it yet for important documents!

This looks to be one commit behind the HEAD of the 0.19 branch -- it doesn't have that very last merge you made, of the Sketcher bugfix.

any plans of using a newer OCC version? I think 7.5.0 had bugs with step import and/or export that come up every now and then in forum

Thanks! Indeed, I forgot to checkout the branch after I made the commit.
For the final installer, I will build using the 0.19.3 tag. This tag has not yet been set.

Besides this, does it work for you? I am especially interested if you could run a simple FEM simulation? This revealed in the past often issues since Python and Netgen or GMSH are involved and on Windows their setup can be tricky.

Using the latest OCC was my plan but we (the release team consists of sgrogan, loo, syres and me), already run out of spare time. So for the maintenance release we rely on pure FreeCAD fixes and keep the Libpack (bundle of third-pary libraries) the same a for FC 0.19.2. We don't want to delay the release again. Once there will be work on the LibPack, we could provide a new maintenance release, maybe only for Windows or Mac since on Linux the third-party libraries are provides by the distribution.

However, for Windows I am trying to update few libraries like GMSH, but not for OCC.

Sure, I just ran a quick cantilever in FEM without any problems, and the FEM unit tests all pass without issue. I get one unit test failure in Path, and the Start unit tests failed to load, but everything else worked well. I am testing on Windows 10 21H1.

Many thanks!

The failure you get, its this also with FC 0.19.2? If so we have regressions. Can you please post them separately in a post here (with a recipe to reproduce)? For path, please CC @sliptonic.

Because we did not yet tag the release of 0.19.3 yet. The test builds are there to find possible regressions and as reported by chennes it could be we have some.

Meanwhile we identified 2 issues, one with a test of the FEM WB and one with the Reverse Engineering WB.

Fixes are already available:
https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/4767
https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/4912
I will do their backport later today.

So I will provide another Windows test build tomorrow.
