[blender-2.54-beta] Settings for export in collada 1.4

I’m using blender to create images to export in collada 1.4, after that I convert the collada files in POD format to use them on iPhone app.
When in Blender-2.49b I export the file in collada I set the options:

  • Triangles
  • Apply modifiers
    Where can I find such options in blender-2.54-beta? I’ve looked for a while but haven’t found them.
    More in general do you think that I can use blender-2.5 for my works?
    I’m a beginner and then I haven’t works to maintain or convert.

Apparently, COLLADA in 2.5 is still “in development.” Try to find the latest version of Blender supporting COLLADA at http://www.graphicall.org/builds/ . You might find some more hints in this thread: http://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?t=188989
