Maya Jobtype, v4.0-9 released! (OSX, Linux)
« on: October 20, 2006, 04:52:53 AM »
Aloha,

We have made some updates to the Autodesk Maya Jobtype, and are happy to release it as version 4.0-9,
for the MacOS X and Linux platforms.  The Microsoft Windows platform port was released earlier.

We have officially added support for Maya v8 in this release, added a few error-checking for
file I/O, and have fixed a few bugs.

You may download it here:

Thank you,

Pipelinefx Support Team

@RELEASE: 4.0-9 (2006-09-19)

@IMPORTANT:

Please read the README.txt file for the latest important information
regarding the installation and use of this package.

@SUMMARY:

This release includes support for Maya 8.0 (32-bit only).
Otherwise, this is a maintenance release, including better
error-checking on I/O directories, and a more robust mechanism
to find the executable in the back-end.

@FEATURE: Maya 8.0 (32-bit) support

Support for Maya 8.0 has been added.  This time, however, it is only
for the 32-bit port.  The 64-bit version is on its way.

@FEATURE: Better I/O error-checking

The back-end code now checks for read/write permissions on the
input scenefile and output directory.

@FEATURE: Better support for Maya installed in non-default location

The back-end code now supports a more robust mechanism of searching
for the mayabatch.exe program.  It searches the $PATH first, then
the paths specified in the windows registry, and then the default
installation locations.

@CHANGE: Internal code cleanup

Some internal cleanup of code has been done, for better maintainability.
