Description

QGIS 2.18.19-2 is the latest version packaged with Grass 7. For any reasons, All the following versions been have packaged with Grass 6 only. But the tools are unusable with this version because they are compatible with version 7 only…
I get an error message saying Grass 7 hasn't been installed correctly.

I tried to copy grass7 components from QGIS 2.18.19-2 into my 2.18.28 version, but it doesn't to work… QGIS won't see Grass 7 at all. I am needing to revert to version 2.18.19-2.

In the readme files it's never mentioned such a regression.

Excuse-me, but QGIS 2.18 is still heavily used in companies. QGIS 3.4 is still very buggy and incompatible with a lot of plug-ins not upgraded.
QGIS 2.18 is more stable.
