LDraw.org 2019-03 Parts Update Now Available
The 2019-03 LDraw Parts Update has been now been released. This adds 627 new files to the core library, including 474 new parts and 24 new primitives. Update versions of the colour definition files (LDConfig.ldr and LDCfgalt.ldr) are included in this release.

After discussion on this forum we have decided to stop releasing files representing LEGO part numbers for 'Physical_Colour' parts, as other automatically updated resources (such as BrickSet), provide a better source for this information. Included in this update are more re-issued versions of many of the 'Physical_Colour' parts as obsoleted files.

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 2019-03 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.

There are still a significant number of 'problem' files which fail to meet our standards and have been left on the Parts Tracker, some for several years. 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. We would welcome any effort to reduce this backlog.

Due to other 'real-life' conflicts, the planned end-of-October update was not forthcoming, but I hope this third 2019 release is a welcome increase in throughput.
