Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to T69943: Crash. custom startup file with a floating window..

Works fine here. Even with AddressSanitizer and --debug-memory (which would almost certainly cause a crash or error print if there was a bad memory access). You seem to be using a rather customized version of Blender, could you try if this happens with factory settings? Since this involves a custom startup file, maybe just rename your config directory for this.
First, I'd try with latest builds though, https://builder.blender.org/download/.

Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to T63743: Show gizmo while transforming.

@Kalyan (coder.kalyan) I wouldn't recommend this for someone just getting into Blender development, this is a harder task than it appears to be. Issue is a) getting the updated transform data out (previously you had to force an update of the object matrices, potentially duplicating work - the new depsgraph might make this simple to solve), and b) efficiently recalculating the gizmo position (calculating its position with 1000's of vertices selected can be expensive).

Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to D5754: Preferences options for temporary editor display type.

Overall approach seems fine, although only having one temp screen seems a bit strange.
For example

Wouldn't it be best to allow a single temp window per type?

Definitely, yes. We were planning to address that separately, see T69652.

Why the hell... I've gotten Bastien's former machine in the Institute, changed the git config - the commits have me set as author - created new SSH keys, created a fresh checkout, ... but Arc still pushed this with Bastien's account...
Sorry about this, checking what's going on.

Julian Eisel (Severin) updated subscribers of T69819: Secondary window improvements.

My suggestion was to start by making all temporary windows to be always-on-top, see D5765. That literally means always on top, even on top of non-Blender windows. Then try to get to this task as soon as possible, hence why it's set to high priority.
Multi-window support in Blender is far from great in regards to usability, but that's nothing new and we won't be able to fix it for 2.81. But again - I see it as a high priority issue.

Julian Eisel (Severin) added a comment to T69791: Crash - new file browser .

Okay, this is quite a corner case. Found a way to reproduce it from factory settings:

  • Open an older Blender version (from before the new file browser)
  • F12 to get the temporary render window opened
  • Change the Image Editor to a File Browser and back
  • Save the file
  • Open it in new Blender with the new file browser
  • Open a file browser

-> Crash.

Phrased this badly, I mean I'm not actually proposing to apply this to all temp windows by default, although we might want to do just that. What matters for this review is checking if it works on all platforms and if this way of doing it is fine.
We'd probably need to figure out where precisely we want to use it then, and if we want to make it optional in some cases.
