Odd one. When i clone the Blender repository and add the submodules, then i have much fewer addons than in the RC1 of Blender 2.79. Okay, let's grab the addons from the RC then.

Obj addon makes big trouble now. Not funny.

Mesh Edit Tools is an Update. Updated version of Mesh Edit Tools doesn't work yet. To Do for after the 2.79 Release when the changes are in Bforartists Master. Most probably a change at the API that comes with 2.79.

Camera rigs has a problem with the removed add menu. Odd one, i thought i had readded it already. To Do.

Materials Library VX has too many issues at the moment. We will not include it yet. Reported to Blender: https://developer.blender.org/T52350

Why not include the old one from BFA 0.9.2 in the next realease of BFA instead of this buggy newer version? It's a great addon. I have used it. 

Reiner's picture

Don't worry. Happens already. As told, we will not include the new one at this point. But the old version is of course still included Smile

It can also happen that the open issues gets fixed with the next Blender rc. And then we will see the new version in Bforartists too.

Updated Obj im exporter throws errors at import.

Whoopsie, copied the pycache folder too here and there, and commited it XD

Task: go through the addons and remove the pycache folders ...

Reiner's picture

... wasn't versioned. So those folders were just polluting my repository. Continuing happily ...

Reiner's picture

The obj problem is solved. And i stumbled across that the FBX module was also updated meanwhile, and so i had to fix this also. I wonder how many other addons i have that are outdated. The funny part is as told, when i clone a Blender repo, then i get those old addon versions  :/

Reiner's picture

On with the camera rig addon. I don't want to use the workaround as with the old version. Let's readd the INFO_MT_camera_add  add menu.

Reiner's picture

This is no readding. This menu is new introduced with 2.79. And i cannot get it to work in master. Funny one. Let's try in the sync_blender_master merge branch ...

Have to stop investigation for now. We have trouble with the add menu in the merge branch in general. And this problem needs to be fixed first.

Reiner's picture

Problems in the sync_blender_master are fixed. And here the camera menu seems to work. Now let's retry the camera rig addon.

Camera rigs works like charm in the sync_blender_master branch.

Mesh Edit tools works fine in sync_blender_master branch

https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforartists/commit/a73dfa8464dfc0b0f168b9...

As a side note, Mesh Edit Tools aka Mesh: Edit Tools 2 aka mesh_extra_tools aka Extra mesh edit tools. And now go figure and try to find the addon in the addons list and in the addons folder. Somebody should explain this addon developer the importance of names at one point ...
