Leon Zandman (lzandman) added a comment to T94696: Folder permission dialogs appearing when Blender is started for the first time in macOS Monterey.

Although this seems redundant and unnecessary since the current message explains it well.

FYI custom explanation text can be added to the permission dialogue using nsdocumentsfolderusagedescription etc.

I did a test by adding those three keys to the Info.plist file and it works. Though I doubt users will read the small print that gets added to the dialogs.

So a check you could do is to open up fsmenu.c and go to about line 362. Change one line that is now:
If this results in better behavior there might be some argument against checking these links like we do. Maybe.

I made that code change, but it didn't affect behaviour.

Most likely your startup file or some add-on is trying to read something from the disk, or your workspace (saved in the startup file) contains a File Browser.

I posted a link to my Metal build a few posts up, if you want to try that.

Thanks, but in general I refrain from running unofficial builds made by others, just as a security precaution. Also, unless you did some signing magic your build probably won't run on my machine. Apple has tightened up that stuff pretty well lately.

Nitpicking here, but the "Experimental" header is aligned way to the left, which is especially visible when the import properties panel's width is enlarged. Optically it would look better if it were aligned the same way as all the other headers are aligned.

I don't know if it's related, but I have experienced several times where I perform actions like moving a node in the Compositor or moving the mouse to scale an object, where the mouse leaves the windows. In theory you should be able to continue moving the mouse and the operation will continue too. But in practice often the operation goes haywire and the scale factor increases very much or the node shoots off the screen. I've seen this reported in other bug reports too, so it looks like some mouse messages get lost when the mouse crosses window borders.

Isn't it perfectly normal to get different results between rendering on CPU and GPU? They use different algorithms. In general GPU is faster, but CPU supports more rendering features and produces better results. I think I read somewhere that when you want consistent rendering results, you have to either render on GPU or CPU, but not mix both.

Yes. Different versions format things differently and may not be backward compatible always. As said, the binaries on arm and other 3 platforms are of different versions (which is not an accident, but a known issue), and thus formatting is different T88438#1171687.

As you can see CLangFormat has changed the formatting of both the comment and the code in source/blender/makesdna/DNA_mesh_types.h (link). I don't know why the code itself got reformatted; was it was wrongly formatted to begin with or is my CLangFormat version using different formatting rules? In any case, I'd argue this patch should only contain the comment formatting change.

By the way, I know the make format PATHS="--changed-only". But my point is that already in master that don't seem to be ClangFormatted. Could also be that my local system has different settings. I had a chat with @Ankit Meel (ankitm) last week, and it turned out we used different versions (which is weird, because clang-format is included in the Blender libs, right?).

I imported the Playdate game console USDZ (unzipped it first; used the experimental USD preview option). When switching to Cycles and to Render Preview I noticed the whole thing turned purple. This of course implied missing textures. A little experimenting showed all materials had a faulty node setup connected to the Emission node of the Principled BSDF. When I disconnected it the model had its original colors again.
