I remember there being lots of discussions about the current armature systems and on how they could be improved. With things such as constraints that would stop the boned moving beyond limit values or in some directions alltogether.
But ehr... is anyone actually looking into that stuff? Or is all the development being done in the undos and such?
A way to make some bones not move in certain directions would be helpful. However, it is best that this would be a constraint, and not something that had to be set for each bone.

In my opinion setting up xyz-limits should be on a per-joint-base. Aswell as the definition of the appropriate min and max damping values for them.
That's an interesting thing to say since there's been talk about sepparating joints and bones.... though I don't really remember what the point of it was.
And constraints would be quite perfect, but not possible with the current system apparently.
Another thing to consider.... Now we have to create an extra bone for inverse kinetics. Why not make it so that you can just make the "last" bone in a string the inversibly kineticly master daddy thingy (I just don't know how to say it right). Simply, no extra bone, Just a switch which you toggle for the last bone so that you can just move that one around.
I'd rather have an IK object that's the IK daddy. Might look like an empty or a gizmo.
Separating joints and bones can be helpfull in getting rid of modes.
Select the bone for FK and joint for Pose or IK. Or something else.
Aw what ever it is I hope we dont just get a rehash of what we already have ..
Something new something innovateive. Something with springs and weights and auto vertice select and stuff like that ???>???
