Shane Ambler (sambler) added a comment to T58568: Add support for opencollada >= 1.6.65.

@Gaia Clary (gaiaclary) Seeing that the collada releases from 1.6.64 to 1.6.68 were all tagged in less than two months I would just make 1.6.68 the required version. If anyone is updating from 1.6.63 there is really no reason to build any version before 1.6.68.

Yes, and only those tooltips fail, so some variation with the toolbar? The first line does show, it fails both with py and dev tips on and off.

Shane Ambler (sambler) added a comment to T54314: Contents of "Viewer Node" image block do not get updated .

When a composite node tree has two viewer nodes, clicking one of them will update the Viewer Node image shown in the image editor which is also used for the node editor backdrop. I don't see a way to do this update from python (with or without a UI).

Shane Ambler (sambler) added a comment to T37908: Update online_mat_lib to new group API.

@Brendon Murphy (meta-androcto)
I think the addon update is a good idea but expect it to be less useful if we can get this accepted as a standard addon. After downloading an update it would be nice to reload the addon automatically. While it is possible to disable and enable the current addon I don't know if it would be 100% reliable and doubt it would be acceptable practice.

I had noticed the cache and user materials being saved to the installed addons folder but haven't addressed the issue. While including some bundled materials is fine, the online cache and user saved materials should be moved.

Back in Aug 2014 I found that changes to ShaderClosure was the cause of an osl related crash and later verified that following changes there produced crashes, which lead to the discovery of the alignment issue.

Shane Ambler (sambler) added a comment to T40188: BVH cache files not handled properly.

Probably of note is that "Cache BVH" sounds like an option that many people will just turn on without knowing or looking into when it offers a benefit. I'd say that a majority of animations won't benefit from it so there will be many users that end up with a cache file for every frame of every animation they have rendered.

Shane Ambler (sambler) added a comment to T37732: Improvement for ply import.

While it's not really a bug on the blender importing as the real issue is at the initial data creation, I think it could be better if blender handled cases of bad data as shown in the stackoverflow example. I'm also expecting this could apply to more than just the ply import script. That's why I thought a todo would be better than bug report.

@Andrew Price (andrewprice) I remember back before tooltips became little yellow squares next to the cursor, Apple's balloon help used a speech bubble that was placed away from the object with the little triangular piece bridging the gap to the item.
