IMO this is a showstopper. @Seth_h?

EDIT: it seems to be too late for 6.0.7 because it has been tagged.

I just updated to 6.0.7 on Arch Linux and DO NOT see this behaviour.

Quickly identified and fixed

tldr; 6.0.7 does not have this issue and we are proceeding with the announcement soon

This is a mistake in the packaging. The issue appears in some cherry-picked commits that are targeted to 6.0.8. But we were allowing the MS daily builds to do incremental builds and it apparently didn’t pick up the version number change.

OK. Confusingly, the commit message for fb2cf7b8be (which is davidsrsb’s package) is “Begin version 6.0.8 development”, but there’s no tag for 6.0.7 as far as I can see.


Apparently I don’t know enough about git and kicad repo, this is from the 6.0 branch:

The tag is in the 6.0.7 branch :slight_smile:
It is different from previous releases.

Specifically to avoid the issue shown in this thread, we decided to make a 6.0.7 branch from our code freeze point last week and tag there.

Now that the release it tagged, we will delete the branch and it will only be visible when listing tags (not in any branch)

We may choose to use this MO in the future in order to both smooth our development process as well as keep release freezes stable
