Houdini 17.5 Production Build 17.5.229 April 17, 2019, 3:56 p.m.

Hidey ho! Here's our first Houdini 17.5 Production Build since we went gold back in March.
Houdini 17.5.229 is now available in the Production Build section of the downloads. Enjoy!

Here's some of the notable fixes that went in since gold:
-Docs now display properly on hi-res displays.
-Significant improvements to CSV nodes - Deprecated csvmodify and csvconcat. CSV data manipulation can be done in a more flexible way with attributefromstring (also enhanced) and other newer and more generic TOP nodes.
-Json node received new additions and fixes: Introduced the concept of a wildcard operator to the query syntax Improved the node UI to make it more clear how it gathers inputs, support array retrieve operations
-Various fixes to the scheduler nodes
-Some fixes and additions to Partition by Bounds node
-Fixed an issue with the TopNet in SOPs always being marked as time dependent and cooking too often
-Various other usability improvements across the PDG nodes

And here's a link to the full list of changes: []

We'll be back on Monday.
