Windows nightlies


Might be off-topic, but does anyone of the sages and gurus here know why there are no new Windows nightlies since May 15th?


Nothing in the developer mailing list and there have been relevant commits in master source and a lot going on in libraries


I’m currently running:

Application: kicad
Version: (2017-05-12 revision b823d0b78)-makepkg, release build
Libraries: wxWidgets 3.0.2
           libcurl/7.52.1 OpenSSL/1.0.2k zlib/1.2.11 libssh2/1.8.0 nghttp2/1.19.0 librtmp/2.3
Platform: Windows 7 (build 7601, Service Pack 1), 64-bit edition, 64 bit, Little endian, wxMSW
- Build Info -
wxWidgets: 3.0.2 (wchar_t,wx containers,compatible with 2.8)
Boost: 1.60.0
Curl: 7.52.1
KiCad - Compiler: GCC 6.3.0 with C++ ABI 1010

…and have to say it’s stable and usable - knocks on wood. Did a single A3 sheet design over the last 5 days with it and I’m nearly done with the layout in Legacy Canvas (can’t talk for OpenGL as I didn’t use it).
No problems what so ever - computer was running non stop and so was KiCAD.


I tried that right now. I take it that the drill file generation works in your configuration. Mine crashes KiCad (Windows 10).
Why not revert to my proven 4.0.6 and use my backups? Sigh …that’s a long story with some embarrassing details ;-).

I’ll rest the case for now and wait. No problem, as I am in Hobbyist mode in the project concerned.

Thanks for inputs, anyways!

[EDIT] r8047 (Apr 22th 2017) works, no crash generating drill files, and it happily digests my board. So no problem whatsoever.


If this is a reproducible bug, it would be nice to report it


It is reproducible with a tool of 185.xx mm diameter showing up in the .rpt file and somewhere amidst the drill file an Y coordinate of 97.0 truncates to 97. and the the next entry wracks havoc, showing an Y coordinate somewhere in the stratosphere.

Ok, not your story. I’ll file a bug.

[EDIT] It’s already in the bug list, fix committed and under review.


The drill file bug and commit is the reason that there should have been at least one valid build since the 15th


Bumping this, still nothing since the 15th.
Developers @cbernardo or @nickoe might be able to comment?


Has anybody already made a bug report about this? If not might be a good idea.


It looks like the windows build servers have been unavailable since May 16


but @bobc seems to have spotted a build server failure. What that actually means???


Any news? Two weeks have passed…


The mailing list reports progress with MacOS and Debian builds, no mention about Windows


Lots of time have passed where no one sent me chocolate.

The windows nightlies are up again anyways. Please test.


It’s working!
Thank you.


So far so good, what happened?


Thank you! I’m downloading now. :slight_smile:


No further updates, so presumably still not healthy


What do you mean? Fjfkfkfkd


Windows build servers still not running
1 new build on 31 May, but nothing since.

Are we looking at the same thing?
