[Bf-committers] Breaking fundamental functionality in Blender 2.79?

Dear Blender devs, 

This is a small reminder that you should be more cautious when changing 
fundamental functionality of Blender just for the fun of it. The 2.79 RC build 
had such surprises for me which I didn't expect: 

For instance setting origin to center of mass is not working on non-solid
(open) objects anymore. 

Or rigid body settings aren't changeable anymore during simulation without 
invalidating the point cache. 

In my opinion these changes are not well thought through and tested.
Such issues could have been avoided just by asking yourself the question:
Why did it work in a specific way before and does it really, REALLY make sense
to change this? 

For me and my work these are crucial issues which worked in 2.78c and
should be fixed or reverted for the final 2.79 release.

With respect,
Kai Kostack
