So, we can no longer expect Py2 FreeCAD 0.19 be as good as Py3 one.wmayer wrote: ↑Tue Oct 08, 2019 12:04 pmSooner or later you have to switch to a py3 build because py2 officially expires in less than three months.Looks like more py3 stuff not tested on py2.
I guess most developers have moved to the Py3/Qt5 combination on their systems which is good. And it's recommended that they should no longer worry about Py2 or Qt4 because it is and always was a nightmare to maintain all the combinations Py2/Qt4, Py2/Qt5 or Py3/Qt5 (Py3/Qt4 was never officially supported).Again this highlights the need for basic testing on a python2 build. Folks messing with code using only python3 are breaking stuff.
Nevertheless, if someone runs into a Py2 or Qt4 problem that can be easily fixed I am still open to make a fix for it. ...there are systems where Qt5 causes quite some problems whereas Qt4 worked perfectly well.
Particularly, Path is reported to be broken in Py2, see toolmanager bombed out , all tools gone..
