Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) added a comment to rBA731efb680132: Oscurart Tools: Remove entire addon.

Hi, this commit is not to be reverted.
One of the key requirements to the inclusion of Addons in Blender is that we have the Authors Permission. As the author has withdrawn the addon he has also removed his permissions. Whilst some of us may be surprised or disappointed by this, we must respect the Authors decision.
Thanks.
Brendon.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) changed the status of T76248: Reinstalling an addon in a zip package won't reload code changes from Needs Triage to Confirmed.

Hi I'll triage this as a known issue.
It's been quite longstanding that reload scripts does not handle all cases well.
To correctly identify which cases are not handled will require some testing.
UI changes usually work, changes within classes when bug fixing sometimes work.
Restarting shows all changes, reload scripts can cause false results by "missing" certain changes.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) claimed T70357: A.N.T.Landscape line artifacts if seed is NOT 0.

hi, I'm claiming this task as I've been responsible for ANT in the past.
I've been in contact with ANT Author @Jimmy Hazevoet (jimmyhaze) and his new collaborator and I'm receiving updates for a new version/updated version which are not ready for commit at this stage.
@Ankit Meel (ankitm) Thanks, I'll test if anything has changed with the commit you mentioned.
I'm looking into this issue atm in the most basic way. lich
From what addons devs understand, this issue is a Bug/Issue with the Perlin_Original noise type built into Blender and how it's interacting with random. I think. @Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk)
This leads to 3 options.:
1/ Fix the Built in Original_Perlin noise type in Blender and allocate core dev time to do this.
(is it worth it?)
2/ Remove the Original_Perlin noise type from ANT Landscape.
(I'm testing this atm/in progress) This answer hides and avoids the issue not fixes it but may be practical.
3/ Wait until the new version of ANT is complete. This may take some time.

hi I'll confirm that it's reporting an error yes. However the erosion tool still appears to work. On first run it erodes the mesh and reports error, the ui still appears and settings can be changed. Each change reports the same error and appear to work.
I will look into the error and try to see it fixed withoout disabling the nice erosion feature.
Fix may take a few weeks.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) closed T73845: Still missing Push/ Pull function ("destructive extrude") as Invalid.

hi, unfortunately push/pull was removed due to non solvable bugs. The alternate addon destructive extrude on ba forums also has similar issues. It's the hope that the function will be built in to the extrude modifier. If a fully working version of the addon was to appear and meet my specifications such as no bugs and a numerical entry option of course it would be considered to return.
Thanks, I miss it too.

A side note when using nightly builds and unzipping to a non admin folder such as your downloads folder, this issue does not happen.
We will look into this further.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) updated subscribers of T74017: Documentation links broken in 2.82 after recent documentation url changes for IO addons.

hi, I think this is not a good solution unless it's temporary. Leading up to 2.82 bcon2, I made sure all addons linked to their correct manual pages. Every included addon should have a permanent page on the Manual.
If this only affects i/o addons then we can simply change the bl_info wiki_url to point to the correct manual page leading up to 2.83.
Adding a duplicate field to all addons: wiki_url and the proposed manual_url are the same thing, an internally used name to point addons to their documentation. @Campbell Barton (campbellbarton) what is your opinion here?
@Aaron Carlisle (Blendify)
If this change has broken all 2.82 i/o manual links, it will need to be redirected by the manual until 2.83.
I'm happy to help fix the i/o addons current links in 2.83 master, linking them to the new manual page.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) added a comment to T62567: Some addons not respecting workspace filter.

hi, I had this error/bug/usability concern... myself in the viewport pies addon.
I found the issue was in the submodule registration.
Basically, the workspace filter filters active addons but not the addon's submodules if they are not correctly enabled/activated and most important, registered.. This was especially transparent in the viewport pies addon where the behavior was to activate the addon then activate each pie individually. After I adopted the submodule code from the "official pies" 2.8? I was able to use the viewport pies and they respected the workspace filters properly. You can see the submodule code in the viewport pies here: https://developer.blender.org/diffusion/BA/browse/master/space_view3d_pie_menus/__init__.py hope it helps.
Unfortunately this is not really a bug and relates to 3rd party addons. Whilst this is a known issue and my initial discovery of the bug was using hardops.. I'm not sure what's expected here.
Register your addons and submodules properly and workspace filtering works.
Thanks.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) removed a project from T72279: Material Library VX causes permanent freeze with EEVEE rendering: Add-ons (Community).

fdaa6f6b797b
This commit mostly resolves issues in the materials. I'm not quite finished with the final content but you should find that there's very fast shader compile times in the supplied samples.
This issue was not really a bug but an issue with incompatible shader trees. Many of the materials were created in Blender 2.7x and needed updating to work with both Eevee and Cycles.
Note: I'm removing Addons from this task. The issue still remains that if you test the 2.81 materials lib vx samples there are crashes and stalls. If Eevee is the active render pressing either rendered or preview is causing stalls and crashes in many cases. I've also sampled many materials, created for Cycles in Blender 2.6 and 7x with crashes and stalls in around 70%.
*stalls do not report shader compiling.
Thanks.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) changed the status of T72780: crash while instaling Blender Preferences > install from Needs Triage to Needs Information from User.

tested on windows with no issue. Install from zip and install from file both worked for me.
Exactly which addon were you trying to install?
Are you getting the crash as soon as you press the install button or when you're choosing the file?
Is there an error reported or does Blender close when you press Install?

@Wilbur Jaywright (zargulthewizard)
hi, this is getting closer, It's a near complete file with many materials, I'm still getting a slowdown 1 second on the new wood and the brushed metal. This will give you a better overall view on what's improved now and potentially any slowdowns.

just a follow up that the Stone Red material is a solid crasher in both cycles and eevee. not sure what's wrong there. Going back to 2.81 3 months ago it lags but still loads. now it fails to load and instant crash in Cycles and Eevee. Looking back at the included nodes in the material, there seems little there to cause any issue.

@Dalai Felinto (dfelinto) hi, I was not sure why you removed me as assignee here? Then thinking on it, there's a couple of issues here that should be split into 2 tasks.

hi, in 2.81/2 you can right click and there's a menu item to "Change Bolt". this is not a bug. but I did find another one for which I will create a new task. thanks.

Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto) added a comment to T72279: Material Library VX causes permanent freeze with EEVEE rendering.

hi, just to let you know I'm updating the materials. I've only done the first one 1970's tiles and I identified and removed the bottlenecks. It now switches seamlessly between viewport display modes and Eevee/Cycles. I'll have everything ready in nightly builds within a couple of weeks.
@Wilbur Jaywright (zargulthewizard) can you test the current 1970's tiles then test this new version to see if it speeds up loading for you also?
