FreeCAD 0.16 / 0.17 AppImage builds

probono, an AppImage developer, has been helping the FreeCAD people to create AppImage bundles of FreeCAD. AppImages should be able to run on most recent Linux distributions.

AppImages are super easy to use: once downloaded, right-click on it to get its properties, and set it to be run as an executable. Then simply double-click it to launch!

For now the AppImage builds are hosted by probono, but they may eventually be hosted on FreeCAD's Github.

https://bintray.com/probono/AppImages/FreeCAD

Click on the wanted version, then on "Files".

If you have problems, please report them over the FreeCAD forum: http://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=15525

+Marcus Wolschon AppImages don't contain _all_ libraries, only those that cannot reasonably be expected to be part of each target system. For system libraries like glibc, it uses what comes with the system. In this regard, it is exactly like what you do if you distribute a Qt application to Windows or macOS.

+Normand Chamberland well, I do give it a try every couple of months. I want desperately to use and support its use. I promise I don't just comment to complain.

FreeCAD and the general "open CAD" community should care about and support this efforts... http://tavmjong.free.fr/svg2_status.html
 
It feels weird to bring Libre Graphics World out of limbo for such a bad reason, but here it is: +Tavmjong Bah talks about things that are going wrong in the development of SVG 2 and how it might affect +Inkscape.

The new TechDraw workbench aims to replace the existing Drawing workbench. It is now included in the 0.17 pre-release versions on Windows, MacOS X and Ubuntu. This is a development version, so expect bugs!

Small teaser... (this is the 0.17 development version based on this morning's master)

EDIT: I was too eager to share this this morning and short on time. I should have added that FreeCAD 0.16 was just released last week after almost a full year of work. Mac builds are available, but Windows installers and Ubuntu packages are being prepared.

Before you try to install 0.17_pre, you should be aware that the development process just started, and the new PartDesignNext stuff needs a lot of polishing and bug fixing. So please consider this an early technology preview. In other words, you should not base your work on this version. But participating in the bug hunt will be welcomed by the developers.
