FreeCAD 0.17 release

Postby IanP » Wed Apr 13, 2016 12:39 pm

I am quite excited by Ickby's announcement of the new development version and would like to download it to my Windows 10 machines.
I think that I read a little while ago that it is possible to load the development version in such a way that any new commits get downloaded automatically. Is this true, and if so how should I do it?

0.17 is the dev cycle so 0.17_pre=release
The new files are not up yet. I'm working on a x64 build now.

I must really appreciate the effort and the dedication the developers have put into this program. I remember how frustrating and painful was to use FreeCAD 0.13 back then in 2014, but what we have today has basically no point of comparison.

I'm looking forward to see how far FreeCAD goes in 2 or 3 more releases.

Congratulations!

I'm trying to compile 0.17 under Debian Jessie, but I'm getting the following error:

AFAIK this is only possible with the Daily Builds PPA, a repository on Launchpad.net for Ubuntu users which is currently off because of a Launchpad bug. On Windows you have to download new builds, unless you compile FreeCAD yourself. Afterward the compilation is incremental and does not take long.

There is a bug in master. You can try

Code: Select all

git checkout 081b86c
This will put you in a detached head.
Then cmake and make again
This commit is before the bug in master and after PartDesignNext was merged.

Sorry, my bad. After merging the branch I fixed reported warnings by gcc and Qt's moc. I took out DAGRectItem.h to being moc'ed but forgot to also remove the line moc_DAGRectItem.cpp. It's fixed now.
