New Features and Improvements for CGI

Autosave for Modo Configuration Changes

The YellowDog Modo plugin will now notice a new custom alias even if it has not yet been saved in the Modo configuration file by closing Modo. This means that if you create a custom alias and then export a scene, the export will use your new preferences even if Modo has not been closed.

Full Support for Path Aliases in Modo

The Modo plugin now fully supports the use of path aliases for relative paths through every step of the YellowDog export and rendering process.

Code-sign Certificate Improvements

The client agent has been updated to fully use the new code-sign certificate, including timestamp.

Additionally, the Modo plugin has also been updated to use the new code-sign certificate. If you use Modo, you should update your plugin to make use of this change.
