Thanks are of course due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release. The reviewers also play an important role in keeping files moving through the Parts Tracker and deserve just as much credit.

You can preview the new parts in 2018-02 here, download the zip-file update or Windows install package here. Alternatively you can use the LDView menu option File | Check for Library Updates... to install the update.

Great work for everyone involved. That was a huge amount of work!

I have run through the files by uploading them to BrickHub in order to find bugs. It was a huge success because I found a UTF-8 error while uploading p/4162d01.dat

The Asian letters did a number on my database, but it should work now. As you can see in the link, it both displays the file content, header and structure correctly.

For this file, having UTF8 available, it made no sense for me to title it using an English transliteration ("Shinkai")
when the original Japanese characters were properly available. LEGO is international.
The transliteration instead went into the keywords.
I especially did so because also the original LEGO set is titled Japanese:

Here is the Japanese Wikipedia article about the boat:

This file is a good test for if your software truly works correctly with UTF8 Wink Wink

I was testing this with LDCad and at first could only find the English named ones, until I realized those where the sticker parts (I have shortcuts disabled) Smile

Anyway I assume stickers and shortcuts should have similar naming?
for everybody aiming to treat UTF-8 correctly:

make sure that your code correctly operates on the

Big List of Naughty Strings
https://github.com/minimaxir/big-list-of...r/blns.txt

, which for example contains the 2 letters "Ⱥ" and "Ⱦ", which INCREASE in size from 2 to 3 bytes when lowercased...:
