Open, LowPublic

Description

run it in v 2.78 and/or 2.79 in edit mode, it explodes blender. It closes Blender faster than any other thing could possibly do.
Why did they change Blender to not run with "space_view3d_panel_measure.py" :?

The add-on is broken for a while, see T42940, and that is the reason why it was moved to contrib (so it is only available in developer daily/builds).
While I do understand your frustration with things not working anymore, the code has to be maintained by authors. I can try to see if the issues can be recreated and fixed, but it is not a priority at the current time.
The latest version is 0.9.1 and, like it was said, it is available in the developer/daily builds from https://builder.blender.org/download/ in the 2.79\scripts\addons_contrib\ folder.

Meanwhile you can try the MeasureIt add-on that offers similar functionality and it is officially supported.
