There is no nightly builds for about a week, any idea when it will be back?
btw just came to know KiCad 4.0.3 Stable has been released and I thought it will include the new features like 3D viewer etc etc…but did’t mentioned in the change log. Does anybody tried the new stable release?
The no nightly builds thing does suck…
I’ve been trying to build them this entire week with no success in any of my tinkering.
It’s also undergoing a lot of under-the-hood stuff, and so it’s expected that there will be more failures.
This is not really related with the original event, but it seems that I forgot to actually enable the build when renaming stuff almost two weeks ago. IIRC the latest build do contain the STEP export, but I am actually not sure.
Anyways, the builds have been fixed, so a new build should appear tonight.
Yeah sure, but the nightlies before that had the BZR/version instead of the hex number there… just wanted to point that out, as when I tried to get the 7176 number from that KiCAD instance I couldn’t find it. It’s always showing the hex number instead of the version number…
Maybe not everyone is aware - KiCad developers have switched source control from Bazaar to git (on Launchpad). Bazaar has traditional style revision numbers, therefore BZR7155 etc. Git does not have any concept of revision number, only commits which are tagged with a 160 bit hash value which are globally unique.
The git hash can be shortened to a few characters which is unique enough to identify a commit, but is essentially a random number. This is useful for developers but has little meaning to users.
