Version 0.2 of LDForge is now released. Main flagship features are vertex snapping and rewritten (and actually usable) undo/redo management. Also, the radial type has been replaced with a simple primitive generator, along with a good load of features and bug fixes.
The git tag for this version is ba12e457.
- Completely rewrote history (undo/redo) code, making it a LOT stabler in the process. - Added ability to snap to pre-existing vertices while drawing. - Replaced the radial type with a single action to generate primitives. - Replaced parts list in subfile item list with a primitive listing. Listing is generated either if it's not cached (prims.cfg in configuration directory) or on user demand. Primitives can be categorised with the use of a regex-based configuration file, with a valid default which should cater to most users. - Added an export to file action, moved it + insert from to File menu - Added the message log - instead of being a separate text widget as originally planned, messages are drawn into the viewport. Messages expire after 5 seconds. - Parts are now zoomed to fit properly, making the initial view of the part clearer. - Replace coords: allow replacing all coords regardless of original value, plus relative moving (offset) - Objects can now be edited by double-clicking on them. - When drawing, drawn vertices now display coordinate labels. - Added an action to quickly toggle BFC red/green view. - Objects are now copied to the system clipboard as LDraw code, rather than to an internal clipboard not accessible outside of LDForge. - Changed default keys for Y-axis moving from PgUp/PgDown to Home and End ala MLCAD. - Cleaned up the toolbars, removed clutter by removing most of the not-so-often-used items, though of course the functionality is still available through menus and keyboard shortcuts. - [Linux] External programs can now be launched with Wine. - Improved external program fault handling: don't try to replace/append the output in case of failure, catch non-zero exit codes. - Added a progress box for file loading to respond to desktops while loading files. With large files the no-response policy could be a bad thing. - Color selector is now twice as wide for easier color selection. - Fixed: Recent files should behave coherently now. - Fixed: Overlays could only be defined for the current camera, changing the camera in the prompt didn't work. - Fixed: text editing did not trigger checks while setting LDraw path, removed the Configure button from the LDraw path config dialog, it's no longer needed. - Fixed: Coordinates weren't drawn properly on a bright background (was always drawn in bright colors..). - Renamed "Set Contents" into "Edit LDraw Code", should be clearer - Changed the green color to more "greener" green, rather than yellowish lime. - The dialog box for setting a comment's text is now a lot wider - Calculated coordinates are now rounded down (to prevent stuff like Z:160.000001) - New part dialog: changed "Name:" to "Title", widened a tad.
