generative modeling for Rhino
Important. You need recent Microsoft C++ runtimes in order to run this version of Grasshopper. You can download them here.
A new release is available for download from the usual location. This release mainly features a set of bug fixes. Not all reported bugs in 0.8.0065 and earlier have been fixed. OffsetCurveOnSurface and Brep internalisation is still buggy.
List of features and fixes:
Is it possibile to add in next versions an hotkey to switch on/off the timer?
Speaking of wishes, is there a wish list somewhere? Here are two that come to mind for me...
Ability to import my own libraries into grasshopper c# components... Oh! The debugging we could do!
Sliders with external parameter inputs...? So you can set max and min values based on external parameters. It would be so nice to have a slider that automatically knows the length of a list...
Cheers & thanks so much for all the hard work & updates

I like the list selecting idea.
Not sure how the component could handle it when the range moves away from the existing selection.. Goes Orange or force the existing value?
Would adding some row and column number to the canvas be an option? Or a function (Since there is really no document option, only software preference). Say if the numbers are an object. like scribble. (I'm using an imported curves by sketch object now)
If for example I'm sending the script to a co-worker or client that has to review the document, it would be easier to communicate with a mention-able coordinates.
If store views...is better and faster for you and your client/coworker...
Suggestion2: (just for your interest, David)
Currently invalid hotkey key-press, or character key-press, will cause the application focus to move back to Rhino command line, which is quite annoying. Any chance of improving it?
Suggestion3: (I know this wont get prioritized high in your list, but think about it)
First: Thank you. I like the cache thing. Seems to be helpful in recovering from mistakes that is untraceable.
Any chance of improving the Code Editor:
1: There should only be one editor opened per VB/C component. If you have two opened and you edit on one side, you forget about the second side, the later-closed editor will override the changes made.
2. Commenting Button, comment multiple lines.
3. Sometimes debug info have wrong line number.
4. Dynamic debug? If I forgot to dim or potential using uninitialized obj. (Probably asking too much)
When selecting several components I don't get the option to align them.
Is that something I need to turn on somewhere?
it would be nice to add a function that lets you change the wire display for all selected objects.
Maybe it is possible to include this function into the middle-click menu.
Also a disconnect all from all inputs from all selected?
Maybe just a keyboard shortcut?
I recall that there was a way to 'pinch' all the wires attached to any input (or output) and drag them to an input of another component. I cannot seem to find how to do that anymore.
Or am I mistaken about it being added to Grasshopper? I do recall David testing it.
