**CRITICAL BUG FIX!**
Version 3.4.7 introduced a bug for both rafter and truss roofs when the layers/tags option is turned off.  This release fixes that bug.  I highly recommend that everyone download this latest update to correct this bug.

Version 3.5.2 - 05.30.2024
- Enabled ceiling insulation for floor trusses: Batt, Blown-in.
- Enabled ceiling insulation for I-Joist and Lumber floors: Batt, Blown-in.
- Fixed a bug with ceiling gypsum for inset floors (I-joist and Lumber).
- Fixed a minor bug with joist hangers for common lumber sizes for inset floors.







Honestly I didn't want to spend too much time updating this module since the new Floor plugin will supersede it, however since I do intend on retaining it within the Truss plugin for the foreseeable future, I thought it best to bring it up to speed with the other truss assemblies, and add the insulation option.

Some of these updates seem small now and very incremental however they all take time and energy and they usually involve fairly tedious updates to the attribute library code and the HTML menus.

The Truss plugin overall probably still has the most work that needs to be done of all the plugins.  Compared to the Wall plugin this plugin has many partially finished tools and features and still certain trusses that are missing advanced options.  The work will go on.

The new Rafter Roof menu should be a bit more visual and intuitive for selecting the appropriate roof type:
