Houdini 16.5.535 Fixed a uv bug in gwavefront: Only unique uv values are now exported/indexed as this avoid breaking UV borders when exporting to .obj. Mon. July 16, 2018
Houdini 16.5.535 Fix tbbmalloc_proxy failure when using the latest Windows 10 update (C:\Windows\System32\ucrtbase.dll version 10.0.16299.522). This restores the heap allocation speed when running Houdini on such updated systems. Mon. July 16, 2018

Houdini 16.5.531 The Agent SOP now only outputs a warning (instead of an error) if no clips are loaded from disk. This can be useful when subsequent SOPs will load the necessary clips. Thu. July 12, 2018

Houdini 16.5.530 The volume bounds now appears properly in the viewport for SDF and heightfield volume visualizations. Wed. July 11, 2018
