Due to changes to the api including the merging of bmesh, several addons are outdated.
Please, if you are the author of an addon check your script with blender revision 44256 or newer.
That is builds made After blender 2.62 official release.
I would ask that updates be made to your addon before the Blender 2.63 release.
6-8 weeks away.
This allows time for the api to become more exposed & bmesh to stablize furthur.
If you need help, drop into irc freenode #blenderpython or #blendercoders & feel welcome to ask questions.
At the time of 2.63 release, scripts that are not repaired or in active developement will have their tracker page marked "Closed"
this will not affect your links to the tracker, similar to closing scripts in 2.49b, the page will be still availible & can be re-opened.

Thanks for your understanding & patience during these Exciting Times.

Hello Sean,

Thank you very much for your add-on which I find very useful. I noticed that when I disable this add-on I get a looping message in the Blender console which goes forever unless I re-select the add-on in the User Preferences' Addons section:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "D:\Blender_2.68_stable\2.68\scripts\addons_contrib\", line 939, in setup
File "D:\Blender_2.68_stable\2.68\scripts\addons_contrib\", line 604, in gllightpreset_chooseLoadLocation
AttributeError: 'Scene' object has no attribute 'quickprefs'

Environment is: Windows7Pro w/SP1 64bits, Blender 2.68a r58537

Best regards

Theres a problem with the unregistering in this addon - when disabling it, it spams the console in an infinite loop about some preset location stuffs:

The main problem with this is that when pressing F8 to reload all scripts and plugins (used often in UI design and when working from an external text editor) it gets stuck at disabling this addon and thus never re-enables any of the other addons or even finish disabling some.

This task was automatically closed as archived as part of migration, because it was determined to be no longer active.

The authoritative list of addons is on the wiki, we no longer have a report for each addon to track bugs and updates. Bugs can be reported individually and assigned to the addon developers. See the Add-ons (Community) project page for more information on the workflow.
