 +===== Version 2020.08.04 =====
  
 +  * Final release version of the Polygon Picker - no changes except for the label of the release
 +  * Fixed the Render Audio Notifier (Windows only) which broke when Lightwav.exe was renamed to Layout.exe (quite some time ago ;) ).
  
 +===== Version 2020.07.24 =====
 +
 +  * Fixed a crash in the Polygon Picker that would occur if it was launched but there was no settings file.
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +
 +===== Version 2020.07.20 =====
 +
 +  * Added the first version of the Polygon Picker and added docs ([[tools:polygon-picker]]) 
 +    * There's still a known issue with some meshes not being picked up correctly. We'd appreciate sample scenes if you encounter that issue as well.
 +  * Added a Plugin to open the start page of the db&w Tools wiki from Layout: ([[tools:toolsdoc]])
 +  * Updated the included menu configuration branch (dbwTools.cfg) to include the latest plugins.
 +
 +
 +===== Version 2020.07.14 =====
 +
 +  * Added the final version of the UV Transform tool and updated the wiki ([[tools:uv_transform]])
 +    * This is feature complete for now, but I will change implementation details based on user requests if required.
 +    * Again, sorry for the delay. But once I managed to untangle the main issue I was having, it was fairly smooth sailing.
 +
 +===== Version 2020.07.01 =====
 +
 +  * Added the initial UV Transform tool as a preview.
 +    * as mentioned in the video, a few things are missing
 +    * click on the corner handles to scale, shift-click to scale the opposite corner as well
 +    * click on the edge handle to scale along the respective axis, shift-click to scale the opposite edge as well.
 +    * click on the cross in the middle to move, ctrl-click to snap to the most prominent axis
 +    * click on the far right handle to scale everything along the centre, ctrl-click to scale proportionally
 +    * rotation has been dropped for now
 +    * fit opens a window where the UVs can be fit to the 0..1 space either proportionally or by stretching.
 +    * if the centre is currently outside of the 0..1 uv range, the fitting will be within the current UDIM tile as determined by the centre position.
 +    * the viewports don't update while the "Fit..." panel is open.
 +    * You can also use the four numeric values to manually enter a range to fit to. 
 +
 +===== Version 2020.05.08 =====
 +
 +  * Audio Frequency Tools, made sure they load into Modeler as well (i.e. if applied to a surface)
 +  * Fixed an issue of some tools crashing on Windows in LW 2018/2019
 +  * Fixed the sample content to load properly into LW 2018/2019

 +    * Fixed cosmetic issues when rendering the audio spectrum, also changed the colour distribution
 +  * The Channel Blender "Length" output didn't work.
 +
 +===== Version 2020.05.27 =====
 +  * The macOS 2020 version didn't include the channel modifier. Now it does.
 +  * Removed the thumbnail from the node since it caused drawing issues in other thumbnails.
 +  * Changed the current time evaluation for the spectrum preview in the node to not take the nodal evaluation into account since it caused problems.
 +
 +===== Version 2020.05.26 =====
 +  * Added the Audio Frequency channel modifier
 +  * Updated the docs in the wiki
 +  * Added three sample scenes using the Audio Frequency node and channel modifier

 +    * audio files not being removed on a scene clear fixed
 +    * audio file references are now saved as content relative paths if possible

 +
 +  * Added the first changes to the Spline Toolkit:
 +    * Add the option to evaluate a spline at a real world distance along the spline, as opposed to a %
 +    * Patron Request: Added command to add and edit a spline in one go.
 +    * Patron Request: Added relative distance evaluation mode, which uses a percentage but based on the spline lenght to allow for constant speed along the spline.
 +    * Fixed a crash if the evaluation/display steps are set to 0. Why do you do this to me? ;)
 +  * **A Merry Christmas to all of our patrons** - This year you get the Instance Inspector node as a present:[[tools:instance_inspector]]
