What’s new / Upgrading¶
Below is summary of important changes between versions. A full changelog, including changes in versions not yet released is available from https://github.com/dvdoug/BoxPacker/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md
3D rotation when packing¶
Version 2 of BoxPacker introduces a key feature for many usecases, which is support for full 3D rotations of items. Version 1
was limited to rotating items in 2D only - effectively treating every item as “keep flat” or “ship this way up”. Version 2
adds an extra method onto the
BoxPacker\Item interface to control on a per-item level whether the item can be turned onto
it’s side or not.
Removal of deprecated methods¶
redistributeWeight methods were removed from the
Packer class. If you were previously
using these v1 methods, please see their implementations in https://github.com/dvdoug/BoxPacker/blob/1.x-dev/Packer.php for a
guide on how to achieve the same results with v2.
