Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

We don't need to add support for VSG, but if we do, we would need to add it as a second renderer.

Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

It's much easier to work on something new than maintain legacy stuff. We need to keep compatibility with all the dumb decisions Bethesda made and loads of legacy bloat in OSG, but VSG doesn't need to copy anything.

Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

It was going to be 'the thing' that tipped OSG from 3.x to 4.x, but that was before VSG was announced, so it may never happen. VSG is C++ 17, though, so potentially that'll make Robert passionately anti-pre-11 C++.

There are a few possible solutions, but they're complicated if we want to do them without introducing major problems.

Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

Also, I saw the original C++14 PR had been closed, and that was what showed up on Google, and wasn't aware there was a second one. It's good to know that we're relatively up to date. I'm still wanting OSG to switch to C++11 so I can get rid of a footgun that causes undefined behaviour in a way that ...

Re: Mac user reporting problem

The links for Mac go to the right places when I click them, so the issue is probably that he's clicking the wrong thing or isn't in the right place.

Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

There are still OSes out there that are fairly major, are still supported, and don't properly support new C++ versions. Back when we were discussing upgrading to C++14 a couple of years ago, it was pointed out that Ubuntu 14.04 LTS was still in its support period, but you had to install GCC from a t...

Re: Change to stl::filesystem from Boost::filesystem

We're still on C++11. There are good reasons why we'd want to switch to C++17 (getting std::filesystem is one of the big ones) but there are reasons not to, too.

Re: Android part 2
