Nabble removed Mailing-list integration from the Forum.
This killed the Forum. This is now an ARCHIVE.
It is likely Nabble will shutdown in the future.

So basically the Forum is now out of date, we are looking into migrating the history.

OpenSCAD support is now provided by the Mailing List.
See the first pinned post here for instructions on subscribing to the mailing list.

AppImages are single file binaries that will just run from
that single file, those have nothing to do with apt/apt-get:

https://docs.appimage.org/introduction/quickstart.html#ref-quickstart

Using apt-get, is the preferred way though and will give you
the version from whatever distribution you are using. For
Ubuntu there is a PPA with the latest releases that could be
setup in addition to the main repository:
https://launchpad.net/~openscad/+archive/ubuntu/releases

ciao,
  Torsten.

A slight correction Torsten. The OpenSCAD version 2021.04.13.ai7733 (git
d1c445d4c) will not run on an uptodate stretch on a 4 core i5, some
library is missing.  Runs fine on an uptodate buster.

Cheers, Gene Heskett

My apologies, Torsten
I was trying to report two separate problems, one with the Appimage, and the other with the 2021.01 64 bit Linux version, but I found the problem with the Appimage.

I realized my mistake as soon as I posted it, and edited it to read:

I just tried to install OpenSCAD 2021.01 from
https://openscad.org/downloads.html 
using sudo apt-get install openscad, but when I run it, I get version
2019.05
I realize now that I should have deleted it and posted again.
