We want to take a moment to appreciate those members of the #FreeCAD community choosing to use latest dev/bleeding-edge version to help us test/confirm bugs + fixes.
These early adopters are CRUCIAL to the speed + quality of development. Demonstrating that coding isn't the primary #FLOSS contribution. Consider joining our small army of testers!
Obligatory: you'll need to adapt your workflow in order to anticipate catastrophic bugs (eg.by rolling back to a stable version if necessary)
Wanna take a stab at fixing them? (Note: OCC has a complicated CLA) https://forum.freecad.org/viewtopic.php?t=20264
Our friend + FEM workbench lead dev, Bernd Hahnebach, sends his regards. He's been on hiatus from hacking on #FreeCAD due to the birth of his 2nd child! Congrats! 🥰
He hasn't fully disappeared, he still found time to manage the CI bot that tests FreeCAD PRs.
Thank you Bernd! 🙏 We miss you!

#FreeCAD #news coming down the pipeline: A new #DXF reader! Thanks to 'ageeye'/'gift' there is a big cleanup happening in FreeCAD's DXF reading (import only ATM) portion of the code. Our #volunteers are awesome!

📢 #FreeCAD #News Official release (v0.20) is rescheduled for Monday June 13th. Technically the release will officially be tagged the night before but build packages will be built overnight + available the next day.
Here's the announcement:
🤔 Not sure if other #FLOSS projects leveraging @qtproject
's localization software (lupdate) have had problems, but we've had our fair share. Hopefully this commit will make #FreeCAD #translators lives easier 🤞
