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.
