LDraw.org 2019-01 Parts Update Now Available
#1
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.

OK, these all new parts for this update?
There are many more (official) parts that need modification to the descriptions.

Is the "complete.zip" on the following page current?

https://www.ldraw.org/parts/latest-parts.html

I have a "LDConfig.ldr" in my files that was created in May of this year, but the one in the archive is dated 2017!

complete.zip is always up to date. The proposed, new ldconfig wasn't finalized in time for this released.

Thanks. I must have gotten mixed up about which file was which.

I'm not 100% positive, but I believe that the update zip is missing the textures 3960p0b.png and 19201p01.png. I don't have time to investigate right now, but I got errors on those files while generating an updated parts catalog.

I see that both of these textures are from parts in earlier updates (probably before textures were supported). There is one other part with a missing texture also. All three existing official parts have fallback geometry, but given that they reference unofficial texture files, I think it would be good if people could certify those texture files. I have done so. The three texture files are as follows:

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't see any textures in the current complete.zip.

LDCad is loading the png from the unoffical parts zip, so I didn't notice the missing files at first.

As far as I can tell, there have been no officially released textures. LDView was automatically downloading the unofficial ones for these parts. I believe that all of these parts were certified before textures were supported by the parts tracker, so they didn't show up as having uncertified dependent files. I don't think this can happen going forward, since I assume that the textures are considered to be dependent files of the files they are used in.

Yes, that is correct.
