FreeCAD v0.17 officially released!

It took more time that anybody would have thought (2 years and 5 days to be exact), it was a heck of a ride, but as of yesterday, v0.17 is finally here. Of course, plenty of people had been using the development release (0.17_pre) for a while.

A word of caution to users of v0.16: there has been tremendous changes to the PartDesign workbench, with the introduction of the Part and Body containers. A Body is now mandatory to create PartDesign features. When trying to edit a document made in v0.16, you will be prompted to migrate it automatically. If your model was done with a mix of PartDesign features and Part objects, the migration process will most certainly leave your model in a broken state! So if you are not willing to migrate it manually (expect having to delete some stuff and recreate it), it would be best to keep a working version of v0.16 on the side to edit your old documents.

Ubuntu users: we've been having some trouble packaging OCCT 7.2.0 so the v0.17 packages may be delayed a little. In the meanwhile, the current freecad-daily 0.17.13509 package is for all intent and purposes identical to the v0.17 release, but compiled with the older OCCT 7.1.0.

We hope to update the tutorials as soon as possible.

Have fun!!!
