Changes in this release:
- Added support for image Environment Maps
- Added the ability to compile and package age Python scripts
- Added the ability to copy/paste Plasma Modifiers
- Added the ability to export an age as a ZIP archive
- Changed the Swim Surface modifier to allow non-flat geometry
- Fixed an issue in which Blender would crash when a blend file needed to be unloaded (eg by using undo)
- Fixed an issue in which lightmapped objects that share a material would not be lightmapped correctly
- Fixed an issue in which the exporter would leave behind node trees with a user count of zero
- Fixed an issue in which the "Preview Lightmap" feature would change the active layer selection
- Fixed a memory leak in the bump map exporter
- Optimized texture exporting
- Reorganized the Journal modifier to accept text notes for journal contents and produce the correct journal data on export
- Reorganized the Lightmap modifier for easier management of object bake passes
- Reorganized the Plasma Game storage to be an addon setting instead of a blend file setting
As part of this release, the Plasma Games listing has changed somewhat. Previously this setting was unique to each blend file. This meant that if you sent your blend file to a buddy, it would retain your list of games. Seeing as how this would be useless to your buddy, these settings have been moved into the Addon Preferences. Korman will remember your Plasma Games for all of your ages now. A button is available to migrate your Plasma Games for you.
Additionally, the Journal modifier and Python File node have been changed to accept Blender Text data blocks. Your journals will have to be adjusted to export completely. Python file nodes should upgrade themselves with a varying level of success. Manual intervention should not be required unless you plan on changing the python file used by the node.
Please remember that Korman is still in beta (that's why the first number in the version is a zero)--don't shoot if there are bugs! This release, however, brings us closer to what I would be comfortable with labeling Korman 1.00 final.
