@Gaia Clary (gaiaclary), is that considered a bug from our side? We already have Triangulate option, not sure it's supposed to give <polylist> or <triangles> tho.. Your call here!

Right now all meshes are exported as polygons, even when triangulated. This is not a bug (as far as i can say) but i think it is more elegant to export triangulated meshes as <triangles>. So i will look at this as well :)

The Collada exporter now exports mesh geometries as <triangles> when the geometry only contains tris (or is triangulated during export).
@Johannes Horvath (John) Peterson: Thanks for reporting this issue. Please can you check if the fix works for you now?
