We are pleased to announce Shotgun Pipeline Toolkit Core v0.14! This is now live in our app store and existing users can upgrade to it using the normal upgrade commands. This is an exciting release for us as it also marks the beginning of our Public Beta Phase! As with all our major releases, Shotgun Pipeline Toolkit v0.14 is fully backwards compatible with previous releases.
The release is relatively small, and apart from rebranding code and UIs (from Tank to Shotgun Pipeline Toolkit), it adds features to allow studios to use the new standardized publish entities that were recently introduced in Shotgun. Toolkit v0.14 contains a command that can be run to migrate publishes in existing projects to the new standardized Shotgun entities. Note that this migration is manual, so you can choose the right time to run it. Don't worry - upgrading to v0.14 will not automatically convert your publish data to the new standardized Shotgun publishes! We've created detailed instructions on the Published File entity migration that accompanies the core release to ensure it runs as smoothly as possible. If you have any questions or concerns about the upgrade/migration, feel free to reach out to us via firstname.lastname@example.org or post a question publicly.
