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.
build_usd.pywill 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!
