Hello,

Why this new production version is 300Mb bigger than the previous 17.0.352, but just in MacOS?
In linux didn't increase the size, and in Windows just 100Mb…
I would like to know, what changed so much.

Thanks guys.

P.S.: By the way, it is not a critique, but a healthy comment: should be great you start calling OSX to MacOS, because the OSX name is deprecrated since 3 versions now…

OSX versions are typically larger in size than the Windows and Linux equivalents. My understanding is that some libraries that are built into the other OS's are not available in OSX, so the developer has to include them in the installer. I wouldn't read too much into it other than it's what's needed to make sure Houdini runs properly on that operating system.

I am just talking about the difference between the previous version and the current one, not the difference between platforms.

The previous version was 415, and the size was the same. 352 was from all the way back at release. A lot has changed since then.

it's simple now including Unreal_Engine 4.21 which is an additional 1.5GB uncompressed.

Note about the libraries - there is no difference.
Note about the changes to Houdini - 415 vs 352 is actually smaller by 0.04GB
