DAZ 3D is pleased to announce the public version of DSON Importer for Poser, version 188.8.131.52!
What is new in this version? Do I need to update my copy?
The 184.108.40.206 version is a maintenance release and resolves some key issues discovered since the 220.127.116.11 General Release. In addition to specific fixes, this release is intended to maintain parity with the corresponding DAZ Studio General Release (18.104.22.168) where features and/or fixes are common. All new downloads of the DSON Importer for Poser product (SKU: 14897) will be of this version. A Change Log with additional information can be viewed online within the Documentation Center portion of our site.

DSON Importer for Poser shares code with the DAZ Studio core, and so it is built every time DAZ Studio is built. Sometimes that means a build doesn’t have anything that should directly affect how the importer operates (i.e. additions, tweaks, fixes that don’t affect reading, writing, geometry, etc) but is part of the shared core, while other times it means something in the shared portion of code does affect it, or something specific to the importer in an unshared portion of code. Regardless, it gets built so that we can keep them synchronized, as that helps us (and you) keep track of which versions of the importer are intended to support content made in a particular version of DAZ Studio; assuming a given feature is supported.
The last two numbers in the version (i.e. 1.1.x.x) of DSON Importer for Poser will generally be the same as the current version of DAZ Studio. There can be exceptions, but they will typically stay in sync. If Install Manager tells you that there is an update, the version it provides is the current one, and thus the one you should be using to ensure the best compatibility with content in the DSON format.
Has the Genesis Starter Essentials, or the Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials, content packages been updated too?
No, the “Genesis Starter Essentials” and the “Genesis 2 Starter Essentials” packages provided with the product have NOT been updated beyond what is currently available.
*Note: Install Manager users are notified of product updates when they occur.

Can I have the General Release and the BETA installed at the same time?
The simple answer is… You should only have one version of the DSON Importer for Poser installed at a time.
The more complicated answer is yes, but you can only have one version of DSON Importer for Poser installed per installation of Poser 9/Pro 2012, 10/Pro 2014. Poser 9 and 10 are only 32 bit, while Poser Pro 2012 and Pro 2014 offer the ability to install both a 32 bit version and a 64 bit version.
Is there any documentation?
