LDraw.org 2019-01 Parts Update Now Available
The 2019-01 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 667 new files to the core library, including 498 new parts and 27 new primitives.

Thanks are of course 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 2019-01 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.

There is an impressive level of enthusiasm surrounding LDraw at present and this is reflected by the large number of files on the Parts Tracker which, prior to this update, stood at an all time high of 4640. Whilst this reflects the effort that is going into creating new parts, and the increase in active authors, it also hides a significant number of 'problem' files which fail to meet our standards. As a reminder, if these have remained untouched by the original author for three months, they are considered 'fair game' for any author to correct.

Although I have posted quite a lot of admin certifications over the past few weeks, there is still a backlog which I am addressing. I hope that my prioritising this Parts Update over further admin certifications is welcome. I am still hoping to get back to a two monthly update cycle and with the current level of authoring and reviewing activity, I am optimistic that the next Parts Update can be issued towards the end of August.
