Houdini 6.0.78 The format of the OPbindings files has changed. While old files should continue to work, the new way of specifying a binding is:

        channelname handleparmname

rather than:

        parmname vectorindex handleparmname

The old method is detected and recognized, but is depreceated. Further, it will not work with ops that have dynamic ui (such as the Add sop now does)

Fri. October 4, 2002
Houdini 6.0.78 The format of bindhandle and bindhandlereserved in .ds files has changed. They no longer specify the parm & vector index, but rather just the channel name. This will often just be the parm name for single entry parameters, or the parm name followed by vector index + 1 for other cases. Fri. October 4, 2002
Houdini 6.0.78 The bindhandle and bindhandlereserved #pragmas in vex no longer take the parameter name and the vector index. Instead, they take the channel name. This will often be just the parameter name for single entry paramaters, or the parameter name followed by the vector index + 1 for other parameters. A warning will be output if an old-style binding is found in a vfl file. Fri. October 4, 2002
