Download link for daily builds in the main website

Post by juangea » Thu Jun 03, 2021 6:38 pm

I've been thinking about this.

Since LuxCore usually goes a bit behind Blender releases, right now we have a problematic situation, 2.93 has been released but due to limitations imposed by Blender, 2.5 won't be supported over 2.93.

May be a good idea to have the Daily Builds download directly in the main website, so people looking for LuxCore for 2.93 can download the correct version, there can be a big warning about not being a release, not officially supporting not released versions of Blender, etc... but at least people won't have to deal with GitHub website to download it, because GitHub can be confusing for plain users, and can even scare them

Just a proposal :)

Good idea since there are a lot of issues on GitHub due to version missmatch. -- although Blendluxcore does a good job raising erros .. but most of the users can not read chinese :)

I will open another side of the situation with 2.93 Blender and 2.5 Luxcore: Render farms use only stable Luxcore.
It turns out that to work with 3SCloud, I have to stick to Blender 2.83

Thanks Dade!

@dez!

That’s the renderfarm responsibility, with max or maya r other proprietary softwares and render engines they may have trouble giving support for different versions, but with Blender and Luxcore it’s very easy for them to support different blender and luxcore versions, there is no license involved and it’s just adding another software, nothing more, nothing less, so it’s up to them to give this support :)
