      I added the link to the changelog. It doesn't mention the changes between RC1 and RC2 though.

    Nice !
    New cycles shader nodes for more possibility. I want to try what I can do with "ray lenght" node for my beach wave simulation!

    Wow, Cycles has really gotten clean. Did this 4.5 hr animation test and don't see any sparkles or noise: http://youtu.be/Rk4ZeF-FTA4

    With most other software, it's like, ok that's cool, new update....

    But with blender, I get ecstatic!

    And this is coming from someone who's used Maya for almost 10 years up until 2 years ago.

    WOW! I am seeing a blistering performance improvement over 2.63, provided 2.64's default tiles settings are reduced. Cycles rendering times for my scene on a Quadro 4000:

    2:63: 139 seconds
    2:64: 16x16 tiles default: 159 seconds (eh? this is slower than 2.63! But...)
    2:64: 4x4 tiles: 67 seconds
    2:64: 1x1 tiles: 53 seconds

    So moving from 2.63 > 2.64 (using a single tile) has reduced my Cycles render time from 139 seconds to just 53 seconds! This will have a wonderful effect on my next 500 frame animation :-)

    The modelling additions are great! However my custom hotkeys don't work. Even the default hotkeys such as CTRL+E and CTRL+F. I've got way too many hotkeys to setup again. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Regards to all

    • latorril

      I have the same problem. I created a custom key configuration in 2.63 and not I cannot import it into the latest versions (2.64 or 2.65).

      When I try importing the .py to use my custom hotkeys, nothing happens. Also, other standard hotkeys like "w" and "e" don't work either.

      I really like my set up. Has this bug been reported yet?
