how about releasing 0.17
and then some days later release 0.17.1

FYI, the delay is creating some confusion for people in the bugtracker

Even the high price professional Programs never run out of bugs.. SP6 at some solid programs is normal mid of the year...

The final beta freeze for Ubuntu 18.04 is on Mon Apr 2nd so if we can have a tagged release before then there's still a good chance 0.17 can make it into the next LTS! Even if release happens afterwards it's still possible but the hard deadline is Apr 19th.
I can create a release, that will tag master, not the releases/FreeCAD-0.17 branch (it doesn't exist yet). Beyond that "It's done when it's done" :)

Netgen doesn't work on x32.
In what way? At least version 5.3 Win32 compiles.

The choice is to update to OCCT7.2 and patch netgen before the release?
I would update to 7.2. How complete are the debug versions in the libpack? I've compiled release versions of occt 7.2 and nglib 5.3 and am wondering if I should compile debug versions as well before adding them to the libpack. (creating a debug version of nglib requires some work because you have to create a new configuration.)

I was getting build errors? Good that it's working.

I believe only OCCT,nglib, and VTK debug libs need to be updated. I can work on VTK if you want to do nglib?

@sgrogan
what version of ccx and gmsh will be included in win release?
IfcOpenShell in win builds is quite outdated. They had a release some weeks ago. version 0.5 we may include this binary?

There is a problem in the Tools/Save picture... function in regard to datum planes and datum lines. Both are always shown in front of the model in the produced picture, regardless of the position in the 3D-view.
The problem was reported here: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 93#p225362

Works for me without problems. So, I assume it's because of the semi-transparency which your driver doesn't support properly.
