That's a really, really big list! Seeing them all together on one page helps realize how much work went into this!

Regards,
Frank

My thoughts exactly! Thank You for taking the time for this!

Wow! You've not only been working on multithreading and transparency, so it's pretty logical why this update has taken such a long time.
Great job on all the improvements!

I like this one: "Parameters with 'color' in their names are renamed to use 'colour' in most, if not all, non-deprecated nodes. Old projects and clip files will load without problems."
Did some Brits complain?  :P
Howgh!

Shouldn't that be 'Queen's English', then?   ;D

"Fixed a problem with menus being leaked. This very probably has been causing the problems on Windows with the UI locking up, and odd flashing etc. The same leak was occurring on OS X, but it does not cause the same sorts of problems."

Hah! I suspected a resource leak was behind this - said so here more than once.   :)

And not to put too fine a point on it, but this, like nearly every other fix on the list, is totally independent of the renderer and could (potentially) have been addressed in an interim release long ago.

hehe you got me.

At least we know why this next version has taken so long to appear, it's taken this long to write out that list.  :)

Yeah... no question it represents a lot of work. (The development work, not the list. Well, the list, too.  :D  )

Lot of drooling going on here!  Maybe Planetside should issue "Beta Bibs" with each download so you guys don't mess up the front of your shirts or drip on your keyboards.  ;) :D
