SDK 1.10.12 Release

I’d just like to announce that Panda3D 1.10.12 has just been released. This is another maintenance release with many bug fixes and minor improvements. It is recommended for all users of lower versions to update.

There is only one known regression in this release, but it is rather esoteric: the BufferViewer debug utility class does not work properly when Panda3D has been compiled from source in double-precision mode. There is a trivial fix for this issue, which can be obtained here. If you don’t use this class or if you don’t go out of your way to compile Panda3D in the double-precision mode, then you don’t need to worry about this.

Go ahead and download the new release or, if you have installed it using the pip package manager, update it using the pip install -U panda3d command. The full list of changes follows below.
