Greetings, commander! There is a new version of FreeCAD released under the name FreeCAD 0.21.0. For those unfamiliar with it, FreeCAD is an open-source general-purpose 3D CAD modeler. It is aimed directly at mechanical engineering and product design but also fits in a broader range of uses around engineering, such as architecture, finite element analysis, 3D printing, and other tasks. While it does not strive to be a tool for animation or mesh editing, you can use it to sketch constructions and export its 3D models to well-known file formats like .OBJ, .STL, and .DXF, among others. It runs on Windows, Linux, and macOS. Here is what we know about FreeCAD 0.21.0:

FreeCAD 0.21 Release
The FreeCAD team is happy to announce the release of FreeCAD 0.21!  Details about this release can be found on the wiki v0.21 Release Page

Builds to install FreeCAD 0.21 are below in the release assets. You may need to expand the assets drop-down to see the build for your OS.

Installation instructions
To install, just execute the Windows installer. Administrator permissions are not necessary when you install FreeCAD only for the current user. In case Windows warns you about a potential risk, you can ignore this and select to install anyway. A standalone version is also provided for users who do not wish to install FreeCAD on their system, but prefer to run it from a thumb drive, etc.

The installer works on all Windows 7, 8, 10 and 11 systems. 32bit Windows, Windows Vista and older are not supported.

An installation of FreeCAD 0.21 will not interfere with an installation of FreeCAD 0.20. If you installed a release candidate of FreeCAD 0.21 or a weekly build, it is recommended to uninstall this first.

For administrators, see this page for how to install for several users and silent installations.

Binary stable builds (no compiling necessary) are available for both the Intel and ARM (M1/M2) processors. Download the appropriate .dmg below (note that you may need to expand the assets drop-down to see the available packages). To install, open the disk image file and drag FreeCAD to your Applications folder. The build will only work correctly with MacOS version ≥ 10.12. The app is digitally signed by FreeCAD Maintainer Chris Hennes and notarized by Apple.

NOTE: An early version of the Intel DMG was corrupted during the code-signing process and failed to run. A new version has been uploaded with a corrected signature.

AppImages, a kind of binary that can run on many Linux distros (no compiling necessary), are available below. Simply download the a--image for your system architecture, change its permissions to allow execution, then run the image.

AppImage (delta) updates
For more streamlined downloading of AppImages download AppImageUpdate (GUI or the command line version). To perform an update:

Using GUI
chmod +x ./AppImageUpdate.AppImage
./AppImageUpdate.AppImage ./FreeCAD.AppImage

Command line
chmod +x ./appimageupdatetool.AppImage
./appimageupdatetool.AppImage ./FreeCAD.AppImage

Known Issues
See known limitations.
