Houdini Main Changelogs

 
17.5.556

Removed environment variable ENV_HOUDINI_DISABLE_CUTCELL_PRESSURE. This is now a toggle-able option in the variational pressure solver called "Use Sharp Collisions", which will apply the cut-cell method along the collision boundary when enabled. This toggle is disabled by default which will give the same behaviour as if the environment variable was enabled.
