Hi all,

Just a heads up, I’ve cleared the guide from some minor bugs, all examples now run fine under Pyblish 1.3.

Hi all,

Another heads up, the Guide is now fully compatible with Pyblish 1.4!


There was a few issues from chapters 4-11 - from validation until CVEI - where plug-ins wouldn’t run because instances were only being created during the “collection” stage, that is, when order=0. This is new behaviour, and I think highlights some newer assumptions we’ve made that on one hand make Pyblish smarter and predictable, but at the same time less flexible and straightforward. Pros and cons. Time will tell whether other issues will appear beacuse of it.
