  • Sequencer has a Gaussian Blur effect speedup, and other strip and modifier improvements
  • Sculpting/Painting has better extruding and weight painting tools
  • Animation has a new constraint interpolation method, and improvements in graph editor, dope sheet, armatures and motion paths
  • Grease pencil now has stroke sculpting, and several other workflow improvements
  • Library handling has been improved to better manage missing and deleted datablocks
  • Game Engine has a few new small features
  • A new Add-on supports packing .blend files and their dependencies, some other IO Add-on was improved, and Python was upgraded
  • OpenVDB caching is now supported for smoke/volumetric simulations, multithreading is now massively supported, and also 2D stabilization node, Image editor, Cubemap and spotlights were improved
  • Support for Windows XP was removed, and the SCons build system too.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)
