one question:
during the video

at 33.45 Roberto mentioned there is a built in crash-report, I imagine it’s this Sentry data collection implementation mentioned back in april:

how can I enable it?
Or use the dump to create a bug report on gitlab?
As sometimes it’s hard to reproduces bugs…

I do not see the “data collection” preferences in my menu as mentioned here

in my current version:

We plan to roll it out to macOS during the development of V8, but haven’t yet made plans to roll out on Linux.

ok, thanks for clearifications, sry. I just realized it was already answered later in the Q&A (1:00h)… :neutral_face:

Where can this Q&A video be downloaded if facebook or youtube is not available? TIA

Which sites are not blocked for you?

I guess all those video sites outside of China are blocked.
These sites are popular here:


Or someone can just publish a magnet link. BitTorrent always works.
I know this is extra burden to the kicad team. But more exposure here will just do good in the long run. Thanks

Kicad download also works. There is no problem to download these nightlies. Download | KiCad EDA
