The return of the nightly build

Long-time users of MakeHuman will remember a time when the nightly builds were the go-to place to get the most stable and functional code. After the first stable release of the 1.1.x branch, the nightly builds have been in a hiatus, since there were not enough code changes to warrant the whole build procedure. 

Now, however, we have a new code branch of MakeHuman: the python 3 port which is currently being built nightly for the Windows platform. A new branch has the potential to introduce lots of unintended bugs, glitches and crashes that need testing before final relaese, so we will need help to catch them all. 

Why Python 3?

Quite aside from the fact that all new development on python is for the 3.x code base, python 2 is rapidly approaching end of life. It might sound as if 2020 is still a long way off, but we have already gotten a few initial scares such as Linux distributions considering setting python 3 as default and only offering python 2 as an optional package. This hasn't happened yet for any mainstream distro, but it will not be far off. 

About the new branch

The new set of releases include several changes: 

  • The code is ported to python3
  • Since Riverside has deprecated PyQT4 and no longer offers it for download, we've had to introduce support for PySide (another python Qt wrapper) as an alternative. This is currently the only option on Windows
  • To emphasize our focus on supporting the community, we are now bundling MHX2, MHAPI and the asset downloader with the community builds.  This should provide community members with an “upside” for enduring any bugs that they may encounter.

So far there are no real feature additions in the MakeHuman community codebase. All focus is on getting this branch up and running flawlessly.

Current status

The current status of the build is that it starts and works decently on the build machine.  It tends to work well on machines containing a discrete nVidia graphics card. The binary FBX export may or may not work (we still have to investigate this fully). But when MH starts at all it is reasonably functional. 

As of now, only windows nightly builds are being made. Until further notice, we'll recommend that Linux users run from source instead, and we will have to get back to you about Mac builds.

Safety First

Perhaps what Joel did not say explicitly, but is certainly implied, is that the MakeHuman stable version 1.1.1 that you know and love is NOT GOING AWAY until we can provide you with a stable and improved replacement.  

For those of you with important production work, and no itch to help shape the future, that version remains your version of choice !!  smiley

The first known document that mentions the art of illusion is the ancient Egyptian papyrus Vestkar, named after the owner of the collection where it was originally stored. It contains legends Dating back to 2900 BC, the era of the reign of the Pharaoh Khufu (Cheops). One of the legends mentions the performance of a magician and trainer DJEDI, who can put in place and grow a severed head of a goose and can make a lion follow him without fetters mageex illusionists also know how to do this.
WEBA-ANER — one of the magicians mentioned in the Westcar papyri, was known to take a small wax figure of a crocodile and inexplicably transform it into a living, adult, and very ferocious beast.
For the first time in fiction about magicians mentioned in the XVI century: Teofilo Folengo of Mantua in his poem "Macaronada" brought a magician named BOCCAL de BERGAMOSC.
The Italian BALDUCCI performed a trick with an imaginary decapitation and increment of the severed head in 1750. He released a rooster on the stage, whose head was previously tucked under the wing and tied in this position. In its place, the severed head of another rooster was attached to the body. BALDUCCI let the rooster run a few steps, "cut off" his head, "blood" gushed, and he showed this head to the audience. Then he covered the bird with a handkerchief, freed the real head from under the wing, and hid the severed one. After that, the live and unharmed rooster was shown to the audience.

What is the focus? In the Middle ages, it was believed that tricks and tricks - this is something diabolical. Traveling magicians, demonstrating their tricks to the audience, tried their best to show the divine origin of their tricks, for which they made the sign of the cross and called on the name of Jesus Christ. Ancient magicians used a phrase that was usually uttered in the Temple during the removal of the Holy gifts: "hoc est corpus meum" - "This is my body".
Over the years, the meaning of this phrase was forgotten and "hawk est corpus meum" turned into "hokus-Pokus". In Russia the "Hokusai" turned into "focus".
Vladimir Dal in his dictionary gives the following definition: Hocus-pocus-buffoonery, a JOKE, a hassle, a diversion, an incomprehensible phenomenon based on the art of pretense. Magician – the magician or mountebank".
Dahl, who is familiar with the tricks and tricks of show magicians and with salon magic, pointed out the main rule in the work of magicians – "averting the eyes", i.e. distraction. In the modern world, illusionism is a demonstration of tricks using various equipment, the unexpected appearance and disappearance of large objects, people, etc. Manipulation-tricks with small objects: balls, handkerchiefs, cards.
The main principle of a magician is to say the opposite of what you are doing. This rule was invented by ancient magicians and magicians. A person can't keep track of two actions at the same time. It follows that the magician must be able to make several uncoordinated separate movements at the same time. Many people talk about the" elusive movements " of the magician. This is not true. All the movements of the magician should be visible to the audience, they just direct the audience's attention in the other direction.
There are many magicians in the world now. Illusion shows awaken the viewer's imagination, make them dream and believe in miracles. Every encounter with magic tricks brings a person delight and surprise.
