FreeCad 0.19, where to download?

Post by hbquax » Sat Dec 07, 2019 5:16 pm

Apparently there is already a version 0.19 around. It is mentioned in some threads in this forum and also in parts of the documentation, e.g. here: https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Part_Pr ... nOnSurface.

But the latest version on the download page https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Download is 0.18.4.

So where can I download 0.19 ?

Cheers
Nils

0.19 builds are still "developer builds" but we are close to a feature freeze for the 0.19 release.
Binaries are available here: https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/rele ... g/0.19_pre

The Download page points to the development version.

No, nothing has been announced yet. Everything you will find is mere guesswork.

I was looking for a quick way to try out 0.19 under windows without going through a full build.
This thread seems to the the one that pops up when searching for 0.19 on google.

One thing I noticed which made life a lot easier is that the latest dev builds are released on chocolatey (which is a windows package manager)
https://chocolatey.org/packages/freecad

So to install
  • install chocolatey
  • create the following directory - C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.19
open the command prompt via right click run as administrator in the start menu
run the following

Code: Select all

choco install freecad --pre --params "/InstallDir:'C:\Program Files\FreeCAD 0.19' /NoShortcut"
The --pre triggers the use of the latest 0.19 build

It is never required to make a full build for Windows unless you want something that is either customized by yourself or released in the past couple of days. The builds mentioned in the links above are updated at frequent intervals.

Chocolately appears to be using exactly the same builds that are on the FreeCAD github releases page. Some people find Chocolately useful for various reasons, but it is plain dirt simple to download from the Releases page, extract with 7-zip, and run. No extra anything needed.
