We're pointing people to the Known Issues thread but that is pretty static. I think adding bullet point or each commit makes sense.
Sounds OK to me. I took a quick look and it doesn't' look like any Qt Assistant related patches made in. Something for the future then.
Good to hear that.
With some hackery
Awesome. 1 suggestion, can we have the changelog precede the download information ?sgrogan wrote: ↑Sat Nov 02, 2019 4:57 pmhttps://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/releases/tag/0.18.4

Extract the file using [7zip](https://www.7-zip.org/) and start the application by double clicking on FreeCAD.exe in the bin sub-directory of the extracted package.
May I have access? I can fix that.
I'd need to fiddle with it to make sure.
