This week’s edition of WIP Wednesday is coming to you live from Brussels, Belgium — home of the world’s best waffles, beer, and open-source software developers! It’s FOSDEM week, so many developers from around the world are gathering in Brussels to join various hackathons, conference sessions, and of course, FreeCAD Day 2023.
Here’s what devs tell me they are working on this week:
- FreeCAD Day 2023 is this Friday in Brussels: many of us are meeting up that day to discuss various ongoing developments in FreeCAD, “Unconference”-style. Expect several blog posts covering the goings-on.
- I (@chennes) am beginning work on the server-side scripts for the Addon Manager’s new remote caching strategy, aiming to reduce data and power consumption, and provide “Last Updated” information for addons.
- @0penBrain is looking into a bug in the unit tests for the Path workbench when compiled with GCC on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS.
- @wandererfan is investigating a report of hatch anomalies and is continuing cosmetic geometry/view coordinate changes.
