Question about unused parameters in Blender

I see, while compiling blender under Linux and using GCC, that a lot of warnings are about unused parameters. For example, in /source/blender/src/editobject.c at line 2622 the following function is declared: void link_to_scene(unsigned short nr) { ... ... } but the parameter nr is never used in the ...

I'm guessing you are talking about the online documentation. Well not in particular... I'm talking about something to read in order to update my Blender knowledge without too much power consumption. But if a new Blender book will be ever released, this time I'll get a copy. :lol: Ahhh... I think th...

The thing I find 'evil' are the 2.27c releases. Just use the next number. I agree with you, expecially when a critical fix is targeted for one platform only. Sometimes happened that a .c versione has been released (2.34c or 2.35c, I can't remember now) but on the download page (I generally download...

Version numbers have been skipped in the past also: From 1.76 to 1.8, from 1.8 to 2.0, from 2.04 to 2.10 and from 2.14 to 2.20 are the ones I remember, so why not do it again? I see no problem with it. Hans Petter Cause it seems some sort of commercial versioning, I think. As Alias skipped Maya fro...

Re: Blender versioning numbers...

And what about 2.37? It will have a new interface, a new transofrm system, softbodies, new buttons for marble and wood textures, its layout is completely changed... For the features it has, it shoul be called directly 2.4.x release branch. It probably will be: http://projects.blender.org/pipermail/...

This question has been asked many times now! And I stick with what I first said, the MAIN screenshot on the frontpage, should IMO, show blender EXACTLY as the user will see it when they open it. You are showing off fancy menu transparency, and then they come to run the program and it looks like a c...

Re: Blender versioning numbers...

So, why continuing to use a 2 digit versioning system? This generates confusion even in the Blender Manual, which is named "Blender 2.3 guide", but, with this system, 2.3 is different from 2.30 ... When it has all the features expected for 3.0, it will be called 3.0, otherwise it inches along becau...

Re: Blender versioning numbers...

Just my opinions... I think the Blender versioning numbers are inadequate... Having just 2 digits to express its version is too restrictive, sometimes. At every release, Blender brought a great number of innovations and features... But how recognize a new version full of news from a bug fixing rele...

Questions about the official Blender manual

With the upcoming blender 2.37 release, much of the content of the current Blender manual will be out of dated. Well, the new interface seems to have a very different layout from the current one. So, are there some plans to update the official blender manual to fit content with the new interface? Th...
