As a result of the relatively swift adoption of the new LBT plugin that was released a little over a month ago, our usual process of identifying and fixing bugs after a new release was one of the most productive to date. A great amount of thanks is due to the members of this forum who reported issues and provided clear examples that let us reproduce and fix issues speedily. We have packaged the fruits of everyone’s labor into an updated release, version 1.1.0, and we have updated the download on Food4Rhino to install Ladybug Tools for Grasshopper 1.1.0 instead of the earlier versions.
For those who installed the new Ladybug Tools plugin over the last month and want to get the fixes, you can upgrade by running the “LB Versioner” component with
1.1.0 plugged in for the
version_ like so:
The component may give a orange warning that the versioner component has, itself, been updated but this can be ignored since the only thing that has changed about the component is the version number. Alternatively, you could run the second component of the installer.gh currently on Food4Rhino. Also note that, after updating your installation, you can update any Grasshopper definitions that you built by using the “LB Sync Grasshopper File” component.
For this release, we have updated the version numbers of all components to be 1.1.0 such that people can easily identify that they have the updated plugin installed.
Lastly, we have a note to those community members who plan to keep up up with the latest development version of the plugins over the next month. Specifically, we are expecting the development version of the plugin to be a little less backwards compatible after 1.1.0 as we upgrade to the latest versions of the simulation engines and make changes to the underlying object schema of Honeybee. Accordingly, users may prefer to stick with version 1.1.0 of the plugin until the next stable release or be prepared to upgrade their simulation engines as we implement these changes.
