I agree but pushback on the fact that people are still getting this wrong. I'm seeing that in the tracker and I'm seeing that here in the forums, Reddit, and other CAD forums. And it's just going to increase as FC gets more popular because people are used to more streamline process when they download from other projects. I'm trying to work on solutions that will make things even more streamlined and less error-prone. If I get it to work then it shouldn't harm anybody right?GeneFC wrote: ↑Mon Nov 12, 2018 2:19 pmYou may be making this too difficult. A static link to the download page(s) with a small amount of text at the top explaining what the various versions are for should be sufficient.
Clearly there should be emphasis on new user friendliness, but any user of FreeCAD must be at least a little bit comfortable with simple instructions.
The actual versions can change daily as required, but the links to the download page remain stable.
One of the problems for FC right now when we direct people to the developmental released page on GitHub, is that people are looking at the amount of commits that have changed since the release
of 0.18_pre whichh is inaccurate instead of realizing that developmental builder generated daily. Because we're not using GitHub release methodology the way it was engineered to be. And that is okay. But it is confusing. It's been like this for a while and I'm just choosing to try to tackle it now
