libredwg-0.11 released

Item posted by Reini Urban <reini_urban> on Fri 07 Aug 2020 10:49:04 AM UTC.

New features:
  * new programs dwgfilter, dxfwrite.
    dwgfilter allows custom jq queries.
    dxfwrite allows version conversions, which dwgwrite does not yet support.
  * Can now read all 2004+ section types: added AppInfo, FileDepList,
    Template, ObjFreeSpace;
    and as blob: RevHistory, Security, AppInfoHistory.
    AcDsPrototype_1b datastore not fully yet, so we cannot reliably yet read
    new ACIS r2013+ SAB blobs stored there, but we extract them from the AcDs
    blob by brute-force.
  * Added new string types: T and T16, TU16, T32 (for those sections)
  * Convert ACIS BinaryFile v2 SAB to old encrypted ACIS SAT v1 data, needed
    to convert pre-r2013 ACIS v2 entities to DXF.
  * Added support for many object/entity types:

    Now stable: ACSH_BOOLEAN_CLASS ACSH_BOX_CLASS ACSH_CYLINDER_CLASS
    ACSH_FILLET_CLASS ACSH_SPHERE_CLASS ACSH_WEDGE_CLASS LIGHT MESH
    CELLSTYLEMAP DETAILVIEWSTYLE DYNAMICBLOCKPURGEPREVENTER INDEX
    GEODATA LAYERFILTER MULTILEADER PLOTSETTINGS SECTION_MANAGER
    SECTIONOBJECT SECTIONVIEWSTYLE VBA_PROJECT VISUALSTYLE.
    and some Dynblocks: BLOCKGRIPLOCATIONCOMPONENT BLOCKBASEPOINTPARAMETER
    BLOCKFLIPACTION BLOCKFLIPPARAMETER BLOCKFLIPGRIP BLOCKLINEARGRIP
    BLOCKMOVEACTION BLOCKROTATEACTION BLOCKSCALEACTION
    BLOCKVISIBILITYGRIP

    New unstable: ACSH_BREP_CLASS ACSH_CHAMFER_CLASS ACSH_CONE_CLASS
    ACSH_PYRAMID_CLASS ACSH_TORUS_CLASS ARC_DIMENSION ASSOCACTION
    ASSOCBLENDSURFACEACTIONBODY ASSOCEXTENDSURFACEACTIONBODY

    LARGE_RADIAL_DIMENSION LIGHTLIST MATERIAL MENTALRAYRENDERSETTINGS
    RAPIDRTRENDERSETTINGS RENDERSETTINGS SECTION_SETTINGS
    SPATIAL_INDEX SUN TABLESTYLE.

    Fixed PROXY_OBJECT, PROXY_ENTITY.
    Demoted to Unstable: SPATIAL_INDEX
    Demoted to Debugging: PERSSUBENTMANAGER DIMASSOC

    Note: Unstable objects are not preserved via DXF conversion, just
    the external import is supported.

    Add most Constraint (ASSOC*) and DYNBLOCK objects (BLOCK*).
    Debugging classes added (needs --with-debug option):

    ACMECOMMANDHISTORY ACMESCOPE ACMESTATEMGR ACSH_EXTRUSION_CLASS

  * Started support to write r2004+ format DWG's (which includes also r2010,
    r2013, r2018, but not r2007), but this does not work fully yet.
  * Added all remaining Dwg_Version types: R_1_3 for AC1.3, R_2_4 for AC1001, and
    AC1013 for R_13c3.
  * The header can now be compiled wth C++ compilers, needed for some bindings.
    Re-arranged nested structs, names, malloc casts, reserved keywords like this,
    template.
    Started with the gambas bindings, a Visual Basic clone for unix.
  * DXF and JSON importers now create PLACEHOLDER objects for unsupported
    objects.
  * 3DSOLID got now material properties and revisionguid fields.
  * Many parts of the API are now auto-generated/updated: dwg.i, dwg_api.c, dwg_api.h,
    unions and setup in dwg.h
  * Added geojsonhint or gjv linter support. Fixed all violations (esp. point arrays,
    and POLYLINE_2D). Add a Feature id (the handle)
  * Added support for GeoJSON RFC7946, write closed polygons, re-order by the
    right-hand rule..
  * new API functions:
    dwg_ctrl_table, dwg_handle_name, dwg_find_dicthandle_objname, dwg_variable_dict,
    dwg_next_entity, get_next_owned_block_entity, dwg_section_name,
    dwg_version_type, dwg_version_as, dwg_errstrings,  dwg_rgb_palette,
    dwg_find_color_index.
  * new dynapi functions: dwg_dynapi_subclass_value, dwg_dynapi_subclass_field,
    dwg_dynapi_fields_size.
    (BTW. the dynapi proved to be a godsend for the json importer)

API breaking changes:
  * Renamed dwg_section_type to dwg_section_wtype, added a new dwg_section_type
    for ASCII names.
  * Removed all extra null_handle fields, and add the missing handle fields.
  * Renamed all dwg_add_OBJECT functions to dwg_setup_OBJECT. They didn't add them, just setup
    the internal structures.
  * Renamed VPORT_ENTITY_HEADER to VX_TABLE_RECORD and VPORT_ENTITY_CONTROL to VX_CONTROL.
    Also section enum SECTION_VPORT_ENTITY to SECTION_VX and dwg->vport_entity_control likewise.
  * Hundreds of field renames due to harmonization efforts with the more generic
    JSON importer. Note that some deprecated dwg_api accessor functions were also
    renamed accordingly, but not all.

    For the stable objects:
    TEXT,ATTRIB,ATTDEF,SHAPE,STYLE: oblique_ang => oblique_angle,
    TEXT,ATTRIB,ATTDEF,SHAPE,MTEXT,UNDERLAY,TABLE,...: insertion_pt => ins_pt,
    DIMENSION_* _13_pt => xline1_pt, _14_pt => xline2_pt,
      ext_line_rotation => oblique_angle

      _13_pt => xline1end_pt, first_arc_pt => xline2end_pt
    VIEW,VIEWPORT: view_direction => VIEWDIR (as it overrides this header),
      view_twist => twist_angle,
      view_height => VIEWSIZE,
      snap_angle => SNAPANG,
      view_center => VIEWCTR,
      snap_base => SNAPBASE,

    DICTIONARYVAR.intval => schema, str => strvalue

    COMMON_TABLE_FIELDS: xrefref => is_xref_ref, xrefindex_plus1 => is_xref_resolved,
      xrefdep => is_xref_dep. new common xref HANDLE field (was null_handle in many objects)

    LAYER got a new visualstyle handle.
    LTYPE.dashes got a new style handle and text field.
    LTYPE has no styles H* anymore, moved to dashes.
    LTYPE.text_area_is_present => has_strings_area, extref_handle => xref.
    VIEW, VIEWPORT:
      height => VIEWSIZE, width => view_width, center => VIEWCTR, target => view_target,
      direction => VIEWDIR, front_clip => front_clip_z, back_clip => back_clip_z,

    DIMSTYLE got a new flag0. flag is computed from that.
    VPORT_ENTITY_HEADER flag1 => is_on, vport_entity => viewport, xref_handle => xref,
      new prev_entity handle.
    MLINESTYLE index/ltype union changed to seperate lt_index, lt_ltype fields.
      They were overwriting each other on version conversions.

      changed => is_changed.
    DICTIONARYYWDFLT got a new format_flags and data_handle
    SCALE.has_unit_scale => is_unit_scale
    SORTENTSTABLE.dictionary => block_owner

    Type changes in stable objects:
    SPLINE.fit_pts are now ordinary BITCODE_3DPOINT*
    SPLINE.color is BL, scale is now 3BD
  * Changed truecolor attributes in GeoJSON with a # prefix.

Major bugfixes:
  * Fixed converting ASCII from and to Unicode strings, when converting across
    versions. Embed Unicode as \U+XXXX into ASCII, and decode it back to Unicode.
    Honor dat,dwg->from_version and use the new FIELD_T as seperate type. (#185)
  * Invalid numbers (read failures) are converted to 0.0 in the released version.
  * Fixed wrong CMC color reads and writes, check the method, lookup the index,
    support a CMTC truecolor-only type.
  * Fixed EED writes, by writing to seperate streams and merging them at the end,
    with proper size calculation.
  * All remaining assertions are now protected. (GH #187)

Minor bugfixes:
  * Fixed uncompressed sections overflows, some fuzzed (GH #183), some
    with the new sections.
  * Normalize extrusion vectors.
  * Fix bit_write_BT, the thickness vector pre-R2000.
  * Added many overflow checks, due to extensive fuzzing campains.
  * Fixed wrong julian date conversions with TIMEBLL types.
  * Fxed keyword conflicts with the bindings: No next, from, self fieldnames.
  * Many more, see the ChangeLog.

Other newsworthy changes:
  * Harmonized 2004 section search with the better 2007 variant. Added a new
    section and info fixedtype field.
  * Added unit-tests for all supported objects.
  * Added src/classes.c defining the class stability (stable, unstable, debugging, unhandled).
  * Need now -lm, the system math library, in all cases.
  * Got a complete collection of old DWGs to cross-check against. Many new object types
    could be stabilized because of this. Many thanks to Michal Josef Špaček.
  * CMC color got 2 new fields: raw (EMC only), method (the first rgb byte).
  * Many DXF re-ordering fixes.

Notes: The new constraint and dynblock objects just miss a major refactor into seperate
impl subclasses, and subent and curve support.
