Re: 5.1 stable release


Someone in the user forum asked how to compile with GTK3 (
https://forum.kicad.info/t/force-gtk3-build/14173). I still don't know. I
just upgraded Kubuntu to 18.10 and had also to reconfigure KiCad
compilation from scratch. But I didn't notice there anything about GTK3 and
don't know what the dependencies are.
