I just updated to Rhino WIP 2017-Jun-21 and found some issues in grasshopper:
–Multiplication component now functions as an addition component.
–Previous multiplication component now says “old”.
–Numbers in panels are no longer recognized when fed into components requiring numbers (seen as text).
I’m hoping the multiplication component being changed to “old” is unintentional. Otherwise I’m not looking forward to going in and changing every one of those components out in some of my more complex definitions. I would be interested to know how denoting a component as OLD is meant to work. I first encountered that when I was trying to get out of date examples for plug-ins to work. It seemed as thought in some cases old components still work, and in others they don’t.
And in regards to the Panel Component issue. I doubt it would have been considered a “best practice” to use the Panel to feed numbers into a component, but I sometimes like that approach for input that I am not likely to change, but where seeing it clearly helps remind me of how the algorithm is meant to work in that segment. If anyone has another way to suggest I would be open to it. I do use sliders, and I recently started to use the “values” component for certain situations.
