Freecad-0.16.6712 was removed in favour of the much older 0.17_pre.
As can be seen on github the 0.17 is a year older than the 0.16. also the 0.17 is not stable at all and constantly crashes while drawing for unhandled NaN errors.
I tried to solve this bug myself but I can't manage to get the 0.16 version patched for the qt4 problem.

FYI the qtwebkit-patch for 0.17_pre applied to 0.16 without any need for change.
Thanks for the information. Very strange, that was the first thing I tried, with me the compiler gave a second error involving webkit. Will try it again tonight.
Well one thing is applying the patch which is what I replied to, that works, but I did not (can not) compile freecad myself. I need someone else to confirm build success - does 0.16 work for you now?
Hi Andreas, thank you for coming back on it. In combination with bug #650596 that was pulled in 2 days ago, everything works fine again.
