Hi CG,

2.1.9 should be able handle an null scene data, 2.0 was known to crash
in this situation but I've merged and bug fix to this since 2.0.  If
you are still see this then this is a bug that needs resolving.  Could
you provide a code example that crashes.

W.r.t update, you don't need to call this explicitly, as the frame now
calls this.  Code before in 1.2 was:

   while (!viewer.done())

In 2.x you can do:

      viewer.frame(); // frame calls everything thing for you

Or you can do it short hand by replacing the above with:


Or you can do it long hand by replacing the above with:


The clear up frame calls in 1.2 osgProducer::Viewer are also gone,
there aren't needn't osgViewer::Viewer does clean up by itself.  You
can also stop and start threading if you need to, something that
wasn't possible in 1.2.
