Riccardo Giovanetti (harvester) added a comment to T83216: Potential candidates for corrective releases.

How is it that the versioning has switched directly to 2.91.2? This version numbering is both in the file names (https://download.blender.org/release/Blender2.91/) and in Blender itself (as shown in the splash screen). Probably, this was intentional but, just in case, I let you notice it. Thanks.

Robert Guetzkow (rjg) added a comment to T84586: Use-after-free when expanding hierarchy in Outliner after deleting NLA track.

Unlike 2.83.x it seems that 2.91 and later keeps a reference around to the NLA that has already been removed. In 2.83 the entry disappears in the Outliner once you click on it.

Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) requested changes to D8687: Directly select animation curves in the graph editor.

I'm un-accepting the patch in light of this discussion. Good discussion, code is fine too, but clearly the bigger picture is more important here ;-)

Sybren A. Stüvel (sybren) added a comment to D8687: Directly select animation curves in the graph editor.
  1. First of all, we talked about this idea of being able to move the curves directly with Sebastian recently, and he proposed the idea that if a curve is selected while no keyframe is selected, then the "move" operator can move the entire curve (and all the keyframes) directly (kind of like if the keyframes were "implicitely selected"). I think this is a powerful idea, because it means it is compatible with the following functionality that could be very useful:

Oliver Weissbarth (oweissbarth) added a comment to T84466: Particle system showing in viewport but not in render.

This is not a Bug. The Sprinkles Collection is simply disabled in the render. In the upper right hand corner of the outliner click on the filter icon. Then click on the camera icon to allow you to change the render visibility of the collection. Finally click on the greyed out camera icon next to the "Sprinkle Collection.001". The sprinkles should render now.

Maxime (DR3D) added a comment to D8687: Directly select animation curves in the graph editor.

This reminds me a lot of the points that were raised previously.
I indeed feel like I did not discuss enough what the direction of all this is so far. I of course wasn't planning on adding curve selection and just letting things like that, I have other ideas to make this functionnality actually useful (this commit alone is, indeed, quite pointless). I'll describe them here, so that we can debate them.
