It finally happend!!! Blender 2.80 Beta was released!! The Python API was finalized.
So naturally it was time to update the addon to work with this version.
From this version (1.9.0) the addon only works with Blender 2.80 (and Blender 2.80 only can use this version of the addon).
To use the current stable release of Blender (2.79) the last version of the addon is 1.8.5
The installing procedure is almost identical.
But now the Addon panels are on the Right of the 3DView (Called sidebar Shortcut N). Its closed by default so you will need to open it to see the addon panel.
The updates to make the addon work for 2.80 were very minor, mostly syntactical changes and package changes. So the internal working is exactly the same that previous version.
The only major change for the addon is that "Internal materials" is gone from Blender. So all material are created using nodes.
For importing model this makes no difference. The addon already created the Internal Material and the Nodes Material for Cycles. So just had to eliminate the Internal Materials code.
For exporting the models, however, this is a problem. For now at least you will need to recreate the material inside XPS using the Material editor Modify -> Material Editor ... Shortcut: Ctrl+T
So here it is :
Blender 2.80 is BETA, so expect lost of crashes and weird bugs. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK. Other that that enjoy.
