2.2.1_rc and 2.2.2_alpha are ready to test

From now on, 2.2.1 is under feature freeze, so only important and safe fixes will be added to 2.2.1. I expect a stable release in one or two months, depending on feedbacks.

2.2.2 may still see experimental changes, but it should be still stable enough for daily usages, if you have the auto-saving enabled to avoid data loss.

Currently, there's no known file format difference between these two branches, so all saved dxf files are compatible across branches.

An update of CHANGELOG.md would be useful, that testers know what to test especially.

Also for documenting, the manual should be updated with new features too. It is prepared now, with 2.2.0 branch for current stable and main branch for the upcoming release.

Hi Armin,

Would you like to help a little bit? I'm not clear on the additions part, since I mostly use the latest master branch exclusively.

Something in my mind:

1, right-to-left text (need more work);
2, Display hatching area in dialog for existing hatches;
3, Experimental support for parabolas;
4, Layer tree, pen pallet, and many new drawing methods by sand1024;
5, hovering effect for entities by melwyncarlo;
6, Double click to open property dialog.


Regards,

dxli

I am using a translator.

Hello,

I tried to compile LibreCAD with the instructions here [1], however the libfreetype6-dev dependency [2] is not available in the official Debian GNU/Linux repositories [3], so I skipped installing it, the process did not work for me; then I did the following:

I directly downloaded the source code of version 2.2.1 release candidate [4], tried again to compile LibreCAD and this time it worked, although with the warning about Freetype.

I opened LibreCAD and it worked, but when I checked the version the following appeared:



Note 1:

The libfreetype-dev package is available in Debian GNU/Linux, I installed it and repeated the tests; These were the results:

With the instructions in [1] it didn't work either.
With the source code it did work, this time without the warning about Freetype.

Note 2:

The files used were:

https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/archive/refs/tags/2.2.1_rc-latest.zip,
https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/archive/refs/tags/2.2.1_rc-latest.tar.gz

Both worked, but both showed an alpha version.

Debian GNU/Linux 12 Sid [5] was used.

2. https://packages.debian.org/sid/libfreetype6-dev
3. https://www.debian.org/
4. https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/releases
5. https://wiki.debian.org/DebianUnstable

Thank you very much for your work in LibreCAD!

Best regards.

 Hello ,

My computer is Mac Air , I installed Librecad last month .
Version 2.2.0.2
Compiler : Clang 13.0.0
Compiled on : Jul 29 2023
Qt version 5.15.10
Boost version : 1.82.0

 Trim is very  complicated , maybe i can't do it. Can't you make it simpler like similar programs ?
Will you update for Mac ?

I hope I was able to express myself

Thank you very much.

Please find out latest Mac builds there.

Trimming should work the same though,
