Sergey Sharybin (sergey) added a comment to T70011: Shader node link disappears when going to edit mode.

So I'm guessing it's an issue with the RTX card driver.

Ok both Linux + GTX 960M (driver 430.40) and Win 10 x64 + GTX 960 with latest drivers are working correctly. So I'm guessing it's an issue with the RTX card driver.

@Philipp Oeser (lichtwerk), looks correct. Mind adding RNA_LatticePoint to the same exceptions and commit?

Damien Picard (pioverfour) added a comment to T68666: Animated mesh UVs, vertex groups, vertex colors don’t update on time change.

Hi @Sergey Sharybin (sergey), thank you.
UVs appear fixed, but I’m not sure about the vertex colors. In the test file below, one vertex of the mesh labeled V-Cols is supposed to go from blue to white on playback.
The one labeled V-groups has one vertex shift to the right with a Displace modifier.
The lattice Points are also animated.

I cannot reproduce on any of my setups (even linux + nv430.40). I'm trying to figure out what's happening.

Sergey Sharybin (sergey) added a comment to T68666: Animated mesh UVs, vertex groups, vertex colors don’t update on time change.

UVs and vertex colors should now be fixed.
But in order to fix the vertex groups case I need to have a demo file.

quick note: works as soon as you insert a "regular" keyframe on the mesh datablock [e.g. a keyframe on mesh.texspace_location[0] or something totally unrelated as mesh.use_customdata_vertex_bevel]

Thanks, Looks like another ticket has been re-opened by Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) "We can't assume our user are running the very latest drivers on Linux. Running Blender on common Linux distributions should not require installing custom drivers to be able to open files."
