Changes in 2.35 Python API


A new group was created to take care of bundled scripts management and
discussions. Resources include mailing lists, a cvs repository and a
section at Blender's wiki. The goal from now on is to make sure
included scripts reach the quality and integration expected for any
Blender functionality.

For this release only two scripts were added to the already bundled

    * Scripts Help Browser (Help menu): shows help information about
registered scripts. This is a very recent addition, after 2.35 script
authors will have time to update their scripts with more information.
    * Save Current Theme (Export menu): save the current theme as a
Blender Python script.

Internal changes

BPython is going through general clean-up and internal restructuring
of the code. Stephen Swaney has been very active in this area, besides
having fixed many memory leaks and other bugs.

    * new modules: Sound, Window.Theme;
    * script links: new scene OnSave event;
    * misc: now all command line arguments passed to Blender are
available with sys.argv;
    * Blender: new options to Blender.Get(): 'homedir', 'scriptsdir',
    * BGL: 6 GLU functions;
    * Effect: made Effect.Get('my_obj') return list with all my_obj's
effects -- this breaks compatibility with its old behavior, but is in
accordance with the rest of the API and is more useful;
    * Image: added image.glLoad() and image.glFree();
    * Material: access to mirror and transparency;
    * Object: fixed obj.getMatrix(): defaults to world space again,
added old pre-2.34 behavior as option: 'old_worldspace';
    * Texture: access to Musgrave, Voronoi, Distorted Noise tex types;
    * Window: new GetPerspMatrix() function;
    * World: world.get/setCurrent() method.
