We’re happy to announce another upgrade to our Packages system. Behind the scenes, a package instance update will now use a brand new algorithm.
External references to objects in the package will remain valid after the update as long as the instance that has been referenced continues to exist. This works even if you move the referenced instance within the package tree hierarchy! Below is an example of a rope constraint that keeps working after a package in-place update.
Please note that the in-place update feature requires some new metadata to take effect. It will not make use of the new algorithm if your package was not published/republished after November 3rd, 2022, but will begin to work when newer versions of your packages are published.
