I really think it would be good to release 0.19 in the long term support version particularly because of two reasons: it has a much improved TechDraw, and because it supports Assembly4, installable from the Addon Manager
. Users will test App::Link through Assembly4 and that will be very helpful to find problems. Hopefully realthunder can release Assembly3 as well to do the same.
IMHO, Assembly4 is Just Great! In my experience, it's possible to largely avoid the toponaming problem by constructing the model by excessive use of LCS:s, which are not affected by the toponaming problem at all. Then, any toponaming problems will be quite local to small pieces of the model, and generally easy to fix. Also, putting all bodies in their own files linked together by Assembly4 greatly isolates any problems. Thus, the links+Assembly4 combination already helps a ton with the toponaming problem.
Also, as you said, the new TechDraw is indeed an incredible ipmrovement over the older one.
I'm not sure, but I'd think, that getting v0.19 in its current form to the next Ubuntu would be important for users that use the distribution-packed version of FreeCAD.
