It is probably worth adding a note that you will usually call the body of the shape to get its b2XForm for use when calling this function.
I was creating a new blank b2XForm which would work sometimes but usually fail.


Got it, thanks!

For the second issue, I could grab the transform from the body, but the collision code doesn't include the dynamics code. If you use a different transform then you are solving a different problem.

Me and my project group are planning on using Box2D for a school project. Since we have to "reverse engineer" the whole thing to prove we understand what we're using we'd like to know a rough estimated date for when v2 will be released.

Will there be major changes compared to the current version or does the new version only contain new content?

Another problem we have is that we have to use the Java version, this is also why we need a rough release date, so we can determine if it's worth waiting.

Hope that made sence :)

I just need to clean up the manual. So I'm targetting the 1st week of March.

As for the Java version, I'd tentatively say that we'll shoot to have that port done roughly a week after the C++ one is released, so roughly the second week of March. I'm going to start on it tomorrow, and I think that's a reasonable estimate as long as no major problems arise.

Sounds good!
