  • A location was established on the ldraw.org website listing all of the current LDraw library updates. This page is script generated and as such is always up to date. This will allow web enabled programs to read this document and dynamically download portions of the LDraw library. The location of this page is http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptreleases.cgi.
  • A decision was made not to allow embedded POV-Ray code in official parts library files. The POV-Ray Scene Description Language (PSDL) is not under the cognizance of the LSC, therefore changes can be made to the PSDL that affect the official library in ways beyond the LSC's control.
  • !COLOUR, a new meta command for color definitions, was created for use in the ldconfig.ldr file.

Other topics/ideas that the LSC are considering/discussion are summarised below (in no particular order).
