Re: 5.1.5 RC?
Hmm. The macOS 5.1.4 release was supposed to be rolled back to ngspice-26,
but there were enough shenanigans around point releases recently that I
trust you. I apologize for that happening.
I updated to ngspice-30 on the nightlies because I was told to :). It is
not a feature I use, and while I knew there were issues with ngspice-30 on
macOS I was under the impression that some folks were using it. When some
people reported some issues, I have repeatedly asked if I should roll it
back and I keep being told not to.
Are you already on Launchpad talking about your ngspice issues? If not,
Hopefully folks can get this figured out soon!
