LDraw.org 2020-03 Parts Update Now Available
#1
The 2020-03 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 1315 new files to the core library, including 829 new parts and 66 new primitives.

Thanks are due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release. The small, but dedicated, band of 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 2020-03 here, and 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.

thank you very much, Chris!
as usual, this Christmas present is greatly appreciated.

I have 2 suggestions for corrections:

(a)
the links on page https://www.ldraw.org/parts/latest-parts.html
point to http files (for example http://www.ldraw.org/library/updates/lcad2003.zip ) instead of https
( https://www.ldraw.org/library/updates/lcad2003.zip )
This makes some modern browsers reject those links (they do not allow a http/https mix), for example the most recent Chrome on Windows 87.0.4280.88.
I suggest that all those download links are changed to https please.

(b)
I found some files inside complete.zip which have inconsistent line endings.
They usually (and correctly) are CR+LF, but there is a handful of them which inmidst of the file have a simple "LF" instead of "CR+LF".
It looks like this error was introduced by some script, because the error usually is present at the first comment line.
The problematic files are:
Code:
parts\104.dat
parts\2400.dat
parts\2619.dat
parts\30209.dat
parts\30536.dat
parts\3068bp61.dat

parts\s\letcb.dat
parts\s\letra.dat
parts\s\letrb.dat
parts\s\letxa.dat
parts\s\letxb.dat
parts\s\s1b.dat
These need normalization to CR+LF.

Regarding (b), are you saying that this is an issue with the complete.zip after the 2020-03 update and not in the version before that? I can't find any of those files that were changed or introduced in this update. All those I checked were last updated in the 2008-01 update - which was the complete library re-issue for CCAL licensing.

In any case, the current update process checks all new files for DOS-style line endings.

The error is present in the current latest complete.zip
https://www.ldraw.org/library/updates/complete.zip

To heal the error, the files inside the ZIP file above should be fasttracked through the PT I think.

I can see, and don't doubt, your observations. I asked you to confirm whether or not this is an artifact of the 2020-03 update. I doubt that it is, and suspect these files have had incorrect line endings since 2008-01.

I can fix all the files on the server rand re-build the complete.zip (without any need for pushing these through the Parts Tracker). But first I want to eliminate the possibuility that something strange happened with the 2020-03 build.

I can confirm that 104.dat is missing the CR on the last line at least as far back as the 2013-01 complete.zip. (I don't have earlier copies of complete.zip.)

How many of these files are already corrected and present as updated files in the unofficial library?
If I check 2400.dat in the complete.zip it has a bad file ending, but the corrected/updated version is OK.

I will join the choir and say amazing work to everyone involved. I have tried to contribute this time, so I have a good idea of just how massive this piece of work is!

I have two questions regarding the content of some of the primitives:

1) How come "7-16ring1.dat" has been added with the same content as "7-16rin1.dat" instead of making one of these an alias to the other?

2) What is the point of the seemingly all new fast draw primitives in the /p/ directory which are aliases of quick-draw primitives in the /p/8/ directory? See "stu2-logo.dat" for an example of this.

Thats a mistake. We have abandoned the 8.3 filenames.
New ring primitives should use the whole word "ring" in their name. But we chose to not rename old ri-, rin-primitives.
Anyone uploading new ring primitives need to check if there already is an old file using ri or rin.

2)
To fool hardcoded requirements in MLCad.
Any primitive beginning with the word "stud", like studXXX.dat needs to have a corresponding stu2XXX.dat in the same p-folder.
But since we have the lo-res library now, p/8, we now need to make any stu2XXX.dat file a Move to - p/8 folder.

3626cpm1.dat - Minifig Head with LOTR Thick Gray Eyebrows and Smile Pattern

For self-consistency reasons I agree. The reason they probably haven't been flagged is that both spellings are correct. Grey is more common in UK/Commonwealth and Gray is more common in the US but they can used interchangeably.

Right now, I only generate this for Willy to put into the AIOI. I use a custom bash shell script that I created myself that runs on my Mac. The script generates HTML, which I then import into a master document in LibreOffice, and then export from there to PDF.

Safari, Chrome, and Firefox all have serious issues with table pagination that prevents me from simply printing to PDF from a web browser. (I just verified that again today.)

As an aside, the 2020-03 PDF is 79 MB. My script actually has support for high-DPI (200%) scaling of all the images, but I don't use that. I'm not entirely sure that scaling still works, but the generated PDF would likely be about four times bigger with that enabled.
