Thanks for the effort, no time pressure from my side.

Took about 10 minutes! I'm glad I finally got the packaging repo unified at https://salsa.debian.org/science-team/freecad. I'm using this patch to force the display of the 0.18.1 version--not ideal, but we can get something better set up in master and backport it for a 0.18.2 release whenever that happens.
P.S. This has Python 3 set to default.
We should have called it 0.18.beta1 or something like this. It had some problems and therefor shouldn't be used for an announced release. (Something to remember for next year).
Code: Select all
conda create --name freecad freecad -c conda-forge
I suspect the main problem with Conda is that most people have not heard of Conda, don't know what it is, how to use it, or even if using it is a good idea or not.looo wrote: ↑Mon Apr 08, 2019 2:21 pmFor conda everything should be ready at the evening (hopefully)
If people know how to work with a package-manager they can install freecad 0.18 on win64, osx, linux64 with:
Code: Select all
conda create -n frecad freecad -c conda-forge
But it was shown people are often too lazy for learning how to use a package-manager. So the other option are the appimages and dmgs (for conda-based builds). The only problem here is limited time of maintainers.
yes it's a typo, but this is only the name of the environment.
Hmm, maybe this is true. But I really don't want to make advertisement for conda. I just wanted to say, there is this alternative, and if people really need a 0.18.1 release it's available with conda. I will do the bundles too, but this will need some time.
