USD moving to VFX Reference Platform CY2022 and C++17

Hi all,

The CHANGELOG for the 23.08 release mentioned that USD would be aligning with the VFX Reference Platform CY2022 in a subsequent release. These changes are IP and we’re now anticipating this to happen for the next release (tentatively 23.11).

What this means:

  • USD will require C++17 to build the dev branch within the next week or two.
  • will be updated to build and install versions of dependencies that match those listed in the linked page above.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
