- Optimised CompoundDataPlug::hash() to ignore disabled members. This reduces globals hashing time by 20% for a complex production scene.
- Fixes Expression serialisation bugs (#1081, #1243).
- Optimised ValuePlug hash caching. It now caches more aggressively, keeping cache entries alive across multiple computations. This reduces scene traversal time for a complex production scene by 70%.
- Improved dirty propagation mechanism.
- Batched propagation for UndoContexts, so dirtiness is signalled only once for operations batched within a single undo action.
- Fixed bugs which meant dirtiness was signalled when child/parent plug connections were in an inconsistent state.
- Addition and removal of dynamic plugs now triggers dirty propagation.
- The values of environment variables used for string plug substitutions are now frozen at startup.
- Fixed PathMatcher wildcard matching bug (#1252).
- Added Parameters node. This can be used for tweaking the parameters of lights, cameras and external procedurals (#1259).
- Added PointsType node (#476).
- Fixes Seeds node to take into account the bounding box of the generated points.
- Fixed dirty propagation bugs in CoordinateSystem and ClippingPlane nodes.
- Improved InteractiveRenderer pausing during edits.
- Added DeleteSets node.
- Fixed CustomOptions dirty propagation (#1039).
- Fixed ContextVariables dirty propagation.
- Optimised Filter mechanism, giving a 7-20% improvement in performance across a range of production scenes.
- Added support for interactive renderering with shader and light edits.
- Added support for image metadata
- ImagePlug has a new metadata child plug.
- ImageReader reads metadata from file.
- ImageWriter writes metadata to file.
- ImagePrimitiveSource loads metadata from
- Merge copies metadata from the first input.
- ImageMetadata node creates/sets metadata.
- DeleteImageMetadata node removed metadata.
- CopyImageMetadata transfers metadata from one image to another.
- Optimised many nodes with direct internal pass-though connections.
- Removed flawed MatchPatternLess (#1252).
isSetToUserDefault( plug )function.
compute*()methods are no longer pure virtual. This allows subclasses to make direct internal connections to pass through input plugs unchanged.
- Added support for
functools.partial( WeakMethod )in menu commands.
- Added support for
- Simplified and improved Merge node implementation.
- Added MetadataProcessor base class to GafferImage.
- Added Plug::dirty() virtual method. This is used to inform a Plug that it has been dirtied by Plug::propagateDirtiness().
- Fixed DependencyNodeWrapper to translate python exceptions to C++.
- Fixed compilation without NDEBUG=1 with gcc 4.1.2.
- Removed MatchPatternLess from StringAlgo.h.
- Replaced PlugValueWidget
- Removed GafferImage::FilterProcessor.
- Added/removed virtual overrides in GafferImage.
- Added virtual function to Plug.
