LDraw.org 2015-02 Parts update now available

Willy Tschager the LDraw Content Manager has been in touch and is now going to email us when there are updates or news regarding LDraw. For those using LDD this is the other major alternative. Some say its a lot better then the official one designed by LEGO.  If you user it then this news will be of interest to you;
The 2015-02 LDraw[1] Parts update has been now been released. This adds 439 new files to the core library, including 218 new parts and 15 new primitives.

This update includes another batch of improved and corrected parts. This is largely due to the work of Roland Melkert with the ‘libfix version’ of LDCad. Significant effort has also been expended by Magnus Forsberg to inline dithered colour subfiles (a now obsolete technique).

Thanks are once again due to all the part authors who created or corrected parts for this release. The reviewers also play an important role in keeping files moving through the tracker and deserve just as much credit.

You can preview the new parts in 2015-02 here, download the zip-file update or Windows install package here. Alternatively you can use the LDView menu option File | Check for Library Updates… to install the update.

[1] LDraw is an open standard for LEGO CAD programs that allow the user to create virtual LEGO models and scenes. You can use it to document models you have physically built, create building instructions just like LEGO, render 3D photo realistic images of your virtual models and even make animations.
