I'm diving into the collision code, and I'm searching in the SDK how it all works.
My problem is, the current c++ SDK doesn't show enough documentation.

I've found another site which uses a previous SDK from 2013 which has enough documentation.
I would use that site, if it had a search function, but it hasn't.

For example, if I search about GeColliderCache I get this on the MAXON site:
And on another site I get:

So, what I'm asking myself is, how does it come that the current SDK doesn't show that information that was provided a few versions ago?
And, can this be fixed?

Hello Casimir,

of course you are right, it's a suboptimal situation that the current R16 documentation is missing stuff from prior versions. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused by this.

Actually this is the reason, we still have the R15 docs online available.

You can also find it via our blog:

I know, this is no replacement. All I can say, we are working with high pressure on a complete version of the R16 docs. But we still have to ask for a little more patience as we need a bit more time. Even though, we have more man power on the team, it still is a lot of work. Sorry for not being faster. :cry:
