Version 2.9.9 - 07.25.2021
- Enabled the rafter framing module for complex roofs.

I am releasing this update so that users can begin testing out the rafter framing module, however be warned that it is still missing many features and is technically in a BETA state right now as I sort out some of the details and finer points.

Please send bug details or other concerns directly to my email address, nathan@medeek.com.

Most of my time is actually spent debugging or looking for ways to break the plugins (instabilities etc...)

I found one small minor issue this morning when I generated this roof (I will issue the fix later today or tomorrow):





The module is surprisingly robust even with more intensive roofs however the draw and edit time required for this geometry is noticeable on my ten year old PC.  My youngest son keeps telling me to update to a newer machine with a better graphics card but I figure the older machine actually helps me keep my code lean and efficient.

Version 3.0.5 - 11.03.2021
- Added additional energy/raised heels for double fink truss (2 variants: wedge and slider).

Apparently when I added in the raised heel algorithms for this truss type a couple years ago I only added in the vert with strut option.  It was brought to my attention a couple days ago that the other two options were missing.  I apologize for the delay in making sure all three options were available for this truss type.  We should be good to go now with the double fink truss.

- Added ceiling gypsum to shed and shed w/ ledger rafter roofs.
- Enabled ceiling gypsum for all shed rafter roofs with ceiling joists enabled.

Version 3.0.8 - 01.29.2022
- Added ceiling gypsum and ceiling battens to all floor assemblies.



I am still working on the new floor plugin however in the meantime it was not difficult to add the gypsum option to the existing floor truss/joist module.

This feature added per customer request.

The last few months have been mostly focused on the Wall Plugin and I have not spent much time on the Truss Plugin.  There are still quite a few truss types that do not have advanced options enabled as well as the edit function (ie. monopitch scissor).  Some of these truss types are not as commonly used and therefore there has been less pressure to work on them however I would like to get all of the truss and roof types up to speed so I will spend a few weeks doing that.  I appreciate everyone's patience in this regard, there are still so many things to check off on the todo list.
