Re: Feature Manipulator missing

Is not a clean remove.

And also FeatureManip and FeatureManip.cpp still exist in osgEarthUtil folder.

Re: Feature Manipulator missing

It is an important feature. What is the replacement? I did not found the same set of functionality anywhere.

... feels like the picker that was removed without having a complete replacement with RTTPicker.

Re: Feature Manipulator missing

Thomas,
We removed it (over 3 years ago) because (a) it no longer worked, (b) the new feature indexing system would necessitate a rewrite, and (c) we did not have the resources/time to upgrade it. It was a nifty example, but a non-core feature and an incomplete one at that.

Re: Feature Manipulator missing

Is there a list of core features and non-core features? It is important to do the right bet next time. I thought editing a feature is mandatory and not optional.

Re: Feature Manipulator missing

Thomas,
There is no such list. We did not remove it because it was "non-core" but rather because of the reasons I listed above. I'm sorry for the inconvenience.
