I agree. Using this thread to post updates seems to make for a nice way to manage things.

This could go somewhere in the Core/Assembly section, being one of the highlights of FreeCAD 0.19 release. App::Link functionality made its debut in FreeCAD 0.19 development cycle, further extending the foundation for FreeCAD assembly capabilities. Link feature represents a lightweight representation of the linked feature, created from inside an active document or from an external document.

This is more of a developers oriented functionality. In addition to Python now C++ features support dynamic properties.

I discovered a new Feature that is really cool, but could not find anything about this when searching the forum and in the release notes.

When you hover the mouse over an item in the TreeView it is preselected and you can see a blue ghost of it even if the object is not visible in the 3D View.

This blue thingy is the wall that is placed somwhere inside the house. Pretty cool :)

Realthunder awesomeness. Too bad it can't react to a hovering finger (I use FreeCAD via touchscreen alsmost exclusively).

good addition (again one macro become useless)

Maybe you need a special feature, go into Macros_recipes and Code_snippets, Topological_data_scripting, Dialog creation. My macros on Gist.github.

Not only that. RT made it possible on pure C++ objects: all objects have dynamic property support.
