February 26, 2021 - P3DO 2.9 release candidate

There was no need to publish a release candidate setup because : I just found nothing wrong with the beta.
The download link is the same as last week. The beta is likely to be promoted as final release too, not as-is because of version number, translations and so-on but, yes, it will be the same.
2.9 will be officialy released next friday.
Feedbacks welcome.

Quick search * Search history * Daz Studio navigation button improved




Quick search
The Quick search is a quick access simplified search tool with just the file name as search criteria.
It offers 3 search depth:
Search in current directory subdirectories
Search in current directory asset library subdirectories
Search in current directory runtime subdirectories
The default search is asset library. You can customize the behavior in the new Options dialog > Search tab. That default search is triggered when you hit the enter key in the search text field.


Search history
Recent searches are now restored when you navigate back in the Repostory history.
Running instances of P3DO will share up to 25 search result set, the 26th search overriding the oldest one and so on.
Recent Search menu gives you the ability to recall one of the last 25 search result. It is accessible from the Go To menu and the Respository dropdown


Daz Studio navigation button
The Daz Studio button is now reflecting the DS asset organization.
Animals, Scenes, Geometry have been added and the People structure is now splitted in its various components (Anatomy, Characters, Clothing, Hair, Materials, Props).

Due the figure oriented structure of the People library, P3DO is not providing a default shortcut for those asset libraries. Once you have navigated within a library the menu entry will appear in the shortcut.
P3DO 2.9 R2 will have a solution to that point, by defaulting to the Genesis 8 area of the libraries. Would have been easy to do but I only figured it out recently :(
Misc and fixes
Poser 12 opener fix.
Scene added to Poser navigation button.
Locate will now find for a match in both Main view and Repository.
InDepth information: fix path references in Poser INJ with path to another INJ.
InDepth information: added alternateGeom in Poser paths parser.
Improved 3d thumbnails cache quality - look in Options dialog > Thumbnails tab.



February 19, 2021 - P3DO 2.9 beta

2.9 beta is here. All the version features have been completed.
No more feature will be added until 2.9. In the 2 coming weeks I will just proceed to more tests. And hopefully I will not have any issue to fix :)
The alpha proved to be a bit green in the end. 2.9 beta seems to work like a charm.
Release candidate next week and 2.9 in 2 weeks without a doubt.
Since last week I added a recent search menu. It is accessible from the Go To menu and Repository dropdown below the 2 other recent menus (files and directories).
The Quick Search and Recent search are indeed most useful additions.
Feedbacks welcome.

February 12, 2021 - P3DO 2.9 alpha

2.9 beta has been delayed to next week because there is still some work in progress and there were not enough testings on the version.
The only thing left is a Recent Search menu similar to the Recent Files/Directories menus.
In the 2 coming weeks I will add that Recent Search menu, fix bugs and do some minor improvements.
Those adventurous enough to donwload this version can begin to play with 2.9 and enjoy the new features. Don't be affraid I am using it too, it is stable. Feedbacks welcome.

February 5, 2021 - Announcing P3DO 2.9

Beta of P3DO 2.9 will be available next week. 2.9 release candidate coming 2 weeks later. And another week for 2.9 being released at the beginning of March.
Then there will be a series of updates focused on 2 plugins: PoserPython partial poses and ZipInstaller and probably a 2.9 R2 coming shortly, depending on required modifications of P3DO for those plugins (there will be a heavy rewrite for the ZipInstaller).

P3DO and the Poser Library Palette
There have been several changes in the Poser community since P3DO 2.8.
In October came Poser 12. This is more than great. We all praise the release of P12. As for what P3DO is concerned all went smoothly except for an issue related to the new Python engine in P12.
Troubles came in January with the news that the Poser Library Palette was no longer working on previous versions of Poser because of Flash not working anymore.
Fortunately there are some workarounds but it can prove to be difficult for some people.
PoserSoftware is also offering a bargain price for those willing to upgrade to P11.
The third solution is to use P3DO as a Poser Library Palette alternative.
Of course you can also use P3DO in combination with the 2 other solutions. P3DO Organizer is an excellent tool for Poser.



November 11, 2020 - P3DO pro 2.8 R2 * Python opener fix for Poser 12

Poser 12 is now using Python 3 and there were inevitably some issues with this in P3DO's PoserPython plugin opener script.
I am gload to say the fix is compatible with previous versions of Poser.
Get the plugin update below, the setup will only override P3DO's PoserPython plugin.

Some news on P3DO 2.9
Unfortunately the lockdown had some consequences on the time I have spent working on the project: I went outdoor as often as I could once we got free again.
Then I spent too much time working on secondary projects, with no concrete results :(
I am now focusing on more substantial improvements.
An update will be released in December and although locked again :( I have great feeligns for P3DO 2.9.
The Poser 12 effect ? :))
