Houdini 16.0.649 The Group Promote and Group Expression SOPs now support vertex groups. Group Promote also has an option to convert to an integer attribute afterward, and has a bug fixed when converting from edge to primitive group and "Include Only Elements Entirely Contained in Original Group" is enabled when there are primitives other than closed polygons. Fri. June 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.649 Fixed a bug in the Alembic packed primitive that caused it to incorrectly use the vertex attribute filter when loading point attributes on point meshes. Fri. June 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.649 Fixed a viewport MSS crash when applying stylesheets to agents with different layers that share shapes. Fri. June 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.649 When the Blast SOP is inverted, the descriptive parm is now prefixed with not: rather than not() Fri. June 23, 2017
Houdini 16.0.648 Fixed some numerical stability and scale issues with drawing shaded open curves in the viewport, especially when the joint tangent was parallel to the view direction. Thu. June 22, 2017
Houdini 16.0.648 Mantra ROP's OnCreated script now sources scripts/out/ifd_postcreate.cmd so that users may append extra commands upon creation without having to save a new HDA definition. Thu. June 22, 2017

Houdini 16.0.648 Fixed potential NaNs when writing out uncomposited deep camera maps. Thu. June 22, 2017

Houdini 16.0.645 Using an @ expression in a compiled block (such as in an attribute create) will now error rather than silently fail. NOTE: This applies to Hscript Expressions, not to VEXpressions. Mon. June 19, 2017
Houdini 16.0.645 Fixed a bug in the Agent Edit SOP where joints could become incorrectly scaled while working in local transform mode if the original local transform contained scales. Mon. June 19, 2017

Houdini 16.0.642 Fixed a bug in the Bullet solver where constraint anchors were incorrectly aligned in some situations when using the 'condir' point attribute on the anchor points. Fri. June 16, 2017
Houdini 16.0.642 Improved stylesheet evaluation performance in Mantra on Windows when there are many packed primitives or instances. Fri. June 16, 2017
Houdini 16.0.642 The following parameters have been renamed to better reflect their purpose: "Volume Quality" (vm_volumequality) to "Volume Step Rate" (vm_volumesteprate), "Volume Shadow Quality" (vm_volumeshadowquality) to "Volume Shadow Step Rate" (vm_volumeshadowsteprate), and "Volume Quality Channel" (vm_volumequalitychannel) to "Volume Sampling Channel" (vm_volumesamplingchannel). Mantra ROPs in older HIP files, upon load, will automatically rename the old parameters. However, if these parameters were added to objects or materials, they will have to be manually renamed or replaced. Fri. June 16, 2017
Houdini 16.0.642 The following parameters have been renamed to better reflect their purpose: "Volume Quality" to "Volume Step Rate", "Volume Shadow Quality" to "Volume Shadow Step Rate", and "Volume Quality Channel" to "Volume Sampling Channel". Fri. June 16, 2017
Houdini 16.0.641 Fixed a rare viewport/MSS crash if a stylesheet overwrote materials assigned by shop_materialpath, and the object was then deleted or the viewport closed, and finally the material that was overwritten adjusted. Thu. June 15, 2017
Houdini 16.0.641 There was a bug when exporting light planes where cone lights could cause light contributions to be put into the incorrect light planes. Thu. June 15, 2017
