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!

If you work in the AEC industry, please support IFC development. The industry is stuck with proprietary tools developed by monopolies, and needs more #opensource and international standards.
Two small but nice additions to #FreeCAD source code over the past weekend: 1) new dimetric and trimetric views; accordingly the existing "Axonometric" view was renamed isometric, because that's what it was. All three view modes are grouped under the View --> Standard views --> Axonometric menu
2) Setting the default view orientation for new document (Preferences/Display). I've always felt that default top view (XY) is not logical for a 3D program...
