hoping to see this PR 2723 merged before the 0.19 feature freezing...
This would allow STEP Import/Export to use Links, adding a long time desired STEP interoperability feature...

I triggered this topic in the developers forum too: https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=42904
We can continue the discussion here or in the developer forum..

From my point of view it is time to take a breath and make a freeze for new features to get time for documentation and testing. Also that Python 2 and Qt 4 are no longer supported might be a good opportunity to make a last release with official support for both.

Major release related activities to start in March and for the FreeCAD 0.19 release to happen around April. Such schedule is likely reasonable to expect, based on all information shared.
