Ok, I've been working on Fracture Modifier speed of workflow improvements. So I've been spending a lot of time in blender. I've also kept in regular contact with Meta on this subject.

Ummmm, ya, this is a bad thing....

I like this path so I hope it gets more attention and comes to pass. Frequently when working with professional people in Blender this topic very topic comes up. It would really be a small but effective way to increase the professional polish of Blender IMO.

A couple pokes in the dark here. Maybe a virus scanner is blocking the expanding of that dll from a false positive or just holding it up during scanning might be causing the installer to not copy the file. I've had virus scanners hold things up before and cause similar issues in general.

A Linux build thread is on BA and a build is available:

I concur with T & B...

Lots to respond to here. The team has been actively discussing and working on responses and solutions.

Thanks everyone for your feedback and insight. With the new information we are going over all the points and issues you raised and evaluating them against the design and implementation of this modifier.

A Maniphest design task has been opened to discuss keeping or removing specific features from a design perspective. It is also intended to keep design issue comments out of this patch page. Fracture Modifier Maniphest design task: T42306

Changing to a different compiler, the gcc-4.9 compiler that Ideasman probably uses, and adding stricter error reporting seems to give similar errors as mentioned. From the output and some quick fixes it looks like there are only a couple real errors of concern from the issues use of the new compiler reports. The rest look like they are simple fixes. Scorpion81 will have more information in his response.

Hi Ichthyostega, Are you confident that your changes answer Sergey's concern? If so you should poke him on the bf-committers mailing list and in #blendercoders on freenode.net. Especially on Sunday's before or after the developer's meeting.

It looks like this patch stalled so I am bumping it. Scorpion81, is this still needed or has a similar functionality been added somewhere else or with a different patch?
Thanks : )

Ichthyostega that's a good question about the patch. Drop in #blendercoders on freenode.net IRC if you can and ask Nazg-gul/Sergey personally. I would like to see this project keep moving forward if possible. It may take some persistence and patience on your part so don't give up. Sunday's dev meetings are a good time to drop in if you can't get a hold of someone during the week.

John, are you still interested in working on this task/patch? Maybe if another new dev worked on it with you it might be more interesting to work on?

gandalf3 if you take a closer look at my "Note for clarity:..." post above, there are too odd behaviors. One is the size of the window the other is the button toggle logic. The buttons sometimes use the previous size and sometimes they do not. It all depends on the order in which they are toggled. That sounds like what is happening to your file.

The modifying window code train of thought was it would help any other horizontal show/hide issue, not just address the current one with the VSE.

Note for clarity:
This is not a bug but rather a works as intended behavior from a quick and dirty hack.
It's a duplicate. I have been working on it in https://developer.blender.org/T35709
I am not sure how to mark this one to reference the original one.

using the "=" to activated it sounds good to me off of the top of my head.
I concur. This is really annoying.

From my perspective as a user and demonstrator of rigid bodies for user group meetings, sergof's points are important to keep in mind and the multiple rigid body functionality among other things has to be preserved some how.
I vote keep it. I work a lot with fonts and text and have spoken with others from time to time that do also. I have an interest in eventually coding in 3D text/font area and already have some notes on improvements to things like kerning and leading. I will make note of this issue also. I am also in contact with Elubie on my font preview project and some font family grouping for the File/Asset Browser. It is closer to the bottom of my list than the top but on my list none the less. ; )
Hmmm....just FYI, a lot of us Southern California people use the emboss with certain themes. It's probably from our familiarity with commercial/professional tools that use this look. Not that this is an idea stopper but be advised it may be a groan generator if it is taken away. ; )
Confirmed as stated with buildbot build blender-2.69-fa4260c-linux-glibc211-x86_64 dated Sat Jan 4
Ok, I located and verified the fix for the popping fully open when clicking on + tab for both mode bug.
I will code a patch next for it alone. The other two issues of odd toggle logic and inconsistent zoom settings should be resolved soon also.
