Nightly on Ubuntu?

MichaelAtOz
Administrator
I'm looking at various distros.
I installed Ubuntu in Boxes.
Then using Software Boutique installed 'Software' (a REALLY stupid name).
Searched 'Software' for openscad, found openscad-nightly, installed it.
'Software' lists version 0+git.52c7ac3, updated 08/31/19. See image below.
When run it shows as 2019.03.31.

I note the various instructions on the download page, but won't most users
do what I just did?

I think this is the version of openscad that someone put on the ubuntu snap store. If so, it runs inside of "snap" sandboxing. It probably works okay on most people's machines. On my system, the sandboxing is buggy and prevents access to the GPU, so the graphics don't work. Also, you can't read or write files outside of your home directory.

So, Snap sandboxing is buggy and broken, and they won't let you put a non-sandboxed version of the app on the snap store without going through some kind of qualification process. Most of the snaps I've downloaded don't work on my machine. "Blender" is the one exception: the Blender foundation managed to convince the snap people to let them upload a non-sandboxed executable.

I have no idea where that "updated" date is coming from. The snap packages
are built automatically for each check-in on github (master branch) and
are published to the "edge" channel.

From time to time I manually push to "stable". I don't know if there's
a sensible way to actually have different branches go to those different
channel. So if someone has some insight into how to automatically
publish the master branch to "edge" and the 2019.05 branch to "beta" that
would be great.

ciao,
  Torsten.
