Blender 2.80

The development version now runs on Blender 2.80. Or at least it runs on the version of Blender 2.80 that I downloaded a few days ago. There are still some issues, but most features seems to work as they do in Blender 2.79.

The most obvious difference is that the DAZ tab has moved from the T-shelf on the left of the viewport to the N-shelf on the right side. Not sure why add-ons cannot define tabs in the Tools shelf anymore, but so it is. Here is the same character imported into Blender 2.79 and Blender 2.80:

Blender 2.80
The development version can be downloaded from https://bitbucket.org/Diffeomorphic/import-daz.

The same changes have also been implemented on two of my other add-ons:
MakeWalk: https://bitbucket.org/Diffeomorphic/makewalk
MHX 2 importer: https://bitbucket.org/Diffeomorphic/mhx2-makehuman-exchange
Those add-ons are not really supported anymore, but at least the basic features now work under Blender 2.80.
