Updated and Added:

CitizenX (DIM) (DSON)
David 5 (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files were last updated on 6-26-2013 for DSON Core and on 4-16-2013 for Poser CF.)
Gabi for V5 (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files updated on 6-26-2013 for DSON Core and Legacy and on 3-6-2013 for Poser CF.)
Genesis Female Genitalia (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files updated:  3-1-2013 for Core / 12-5-2012 for Legacy / 3-6-2013 for Poser CF.)
Genesis Male Genitalia (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files updated on 6-142013 for DSON Core and Legacy and on 12-5-2012 for CF.)
Gunner for David 5 (1.0) (DSON) (Note: DIM files were last updated on 6-27-2013 for DSON Core and on 4-9-2013 for Poser CF.)
Leafy Suit for Genesis (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files last updated 1-10-2013.)
Mavka for Genesis (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files last updated 6-26-2013.)
Mavka Hair for Genesis (DIM) (DSON)  (Note: DIM files last updated 1-10-2013.)
Riley for Stephanie 5 (DIM) (DSON)  (Note: DIM files updated on 6-26-2013 for DSON Core and Legacy and on 3-6-2013 for Poser CF.)
Takeo for Hiro (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files last updated on 5 2-4-2013.)
Tori for V5 (DIM) (DSON) (DIM files last updated 6-26-2013 for DSON Core and Legacy and on 3-12-2013 for Poser CF.)

Important Notes:  Again, several of the above products have 2 different versions of files that can be downloaded, which can cause updating problems.

Check the date of the files in the zip and the date of the Manifest.dsx file in the zip to make sure you have the current version.

The current ones are in most cases when multiple versions show in the Product Library the files at the bottom of the files that can be downloaded for a product.

Some products have slightly different names too between the different versions, which also is causing update problems.  (Example, Gunner for David 5 has an older version that can be download that has DS in the name while the newer version doesn’t have DS in the DIM file name.)

All other items reported were updated or added to the list of the DIM files are listed when I knew them.  The Poser CFs didn’t get updated in most cases from what I’m seeing.

Thanks again to everyone who mentioned things that got updated.

I am wondering what happened?
Wasn’t the idea for the “wonderful” only online ReadMe’s that they will be updated when something is updated?
http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/15013/start
http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/15010/start
http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/15014/start

http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/16115/start
No updates in the Readme’s ...

The only one I can find is

updated metadata

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

Thanks MickyBel,

just got that added to the list

Kerya,

I also noticed that the one Read Me that mentioned an update, may have an error on it too.

I says the update occurred on 6-30-2013, but the files were last updated on 6-28-2013.  Just re-downloaded and checked the file dates.  So the Read Me may be incorrect or another update will be out soon.


General Comment:

According to DAZ 52 products got updated over the weekend.  I’ve only got about 30 of those listed so if any one knows of any that were updated that were not reported please post them.

DAZ just gave a rough list of all the products that got updated over the weekend in another thread.

http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewreply/368184/

Not everything that got updated was a Genesis item.

I’ll be getting the rest of the Genesis stuff updated and added on this list in the next couple of hours when I have time to work on the list.

If anyone want to mention the file dates for any of the things I need to update from that list please do so.

Additionally, I found a few things got updated a few weeks ago, so I’ll be updating those items, and will list those updates after I get everything on the list updated in the next few hours.

Updated once again:

Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files updated on 7-1-2013 for DSON Core and on 6-27-2013 for CF.)

Note: The previous update had the date given for the DSON Core files as 6-27-2013 and came out over the weekend.

Thanks MickyBel,

I got the ones you mentioned updated on the list.  Good think you mentioned Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials got updated as it was another update since the version Vaskania had reported I noticed after checking the file dates.  That wasn’t an oops whn you mention it.

Thanks, Kerya,  just double checked the Gorilla for Genesis still showing the same ones I updated on the list on Sunday, but I’ll re download again latter today and see if another update is out and just not showing up yet for download.

..so what does this mean?

Aaron for Genesis Young Teen Justin (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files updated: 6-26-2013 for DSON Core and Legacy / 3-21-2013 for CF.)
Andrea for Genesis Young Teen Julie (DIM) (DSON) (Note: DIM files updated: 6-26-2013 for DSON Core and Legacy / 3-21-2013 for CF.)

Do I need to re download these again or is this only pertinent to DIM users?  There used to be a “version” number like 1.1, 1.2 etc… listed when there was a revision, I don’t see that here or in the product library.

Yes, that’s something I’ve complained about in posts in a couple of threads.

Various people don’t want to use the DIM software for varying reasons; I won’t use it while it insists on using the Public folders for instance (optionally using it, like Poser for the location of its runtime on install, even recommending it, is fine; insisting on it is not). DAZ people keep saying you don’t have to use it, you can just manually download the DIM ZIP, open it and drag the content out from inside the content folder in it to install the content. This is true, but they’ve removed the version numbers from the names of the DIM zips, so we can no longer see if there’s been an update. Indeed, even if we download the DIM zip, the only way to tell if there’s been an update is to burrow into the zip and look at the datestamps on the files and compare them with those in our libraries. And given that they stopped sending out emails to notify of product updates several years ago, this effectively makes it impossible for us to manage our content - at least in terms of updates - without using the DIM software, which does notify of updates.

Indeed the ONLY reason I can think of for DAZ to have removed version numbers from the names of the content downloads is a deliberate and frankly petty attempt to try to force those of us holding out against using the DIM to have to use it anyway, while still being able to piously claim that, oh no, we don’t have to use it if we don’t want to.

This just makes me really angry at DAZ - and rather sickened by their antics too. It clearly would not be impossible or even difficult to include version numbers in the DIM zip names. Nor would it be impossible for them to email notifications of updates like they used to. To think : when a product I’ve bought from Renderosity is updated, I both (I) get an email notification, and (ii) the update (and the date of the update) is noted in my account Item List. If Renderosity can handle the matter, there’s no reason why DAZ can’t.

As it is, we are left with either or both (a)  checking the ReadMes of products we have previously bought in the DAZ Documentation Center to see if an update note has been added (and sometimes they don’t add them, or not until many days later), and/or (b) checking the list here and the noted DIM files updated date against the dates of the content of the DIM ZIPs we’ve still got.

Really NOT a happy bunny.

In my case, I will NOT install the DIM software while it insists on using the Pubic folders. Full stop, end of story, whatever DAZ do. If I reach the point of thinking I simply can’t manage my DAZ content in any reasonable way without the DIM, then I will simply stop buying any content here rather than install DIM software that breaks standards in this way. There is simply no reason for DIM to HAVE to use the public folders, not one of the many hundreds of other programs I’ve installed and used on my Windows machines has insisted on using the Public folders, and I’m not having it. If DAZ want me to use their DIM software, all they have to do is what they should have done in the first place and make the folder location selectable by the user. Otherwise they need to make managing their content without DIM PRACTICABLE, not just theoretically possible, and put the version numbers back into the content download filenames.

“all they have to do is what they should have done in the first place and make the folder location selectable by the user”

ermm…  you can point the DIM to install content to any directory you like or just download and not install, in fact you can have as many install paths as you like and switch between them at will.

The only mandatory install paths are those for the DAZ software itself and plugins.
