* #FreeCAD 0.19 official release is approaching, after 23 months of development
* Ubuntu daily PPA is soon to get updated OCCT libraries (from 7.3.0 to 7.5.1) which should prevent some crashes, a benefit from a FreeCAD contributor who patched the OCCT source code. The packages are already uploaded, last night's builds of FreeCAD failed because of unmet dependencies with netgen, a separate issue. Up to now netgen support had been disabled...
Are you involved in #architecture #engineering or #construction? I'd like to propose the creation of an #opensource buildingSMART chapter, to help represent FOSS devs to help increase transparency and ethical behaviour in the built environment.

Don't forget to follow the #FreeCAD tag (you can "pin" it to your mastodon page), as many FreeCAD community members are posting quite interesting things there!
Read over the #FreeCAD forum, from two days ago (HT: kkremitzki):
This ensures that FreeCAD 0.18 will be in Debian 10 even if the 0.18 release happens after the Debian 10 release.
Although I hope we do not have to wait this long for 0.18 to be released!
