The Blender.org gallery hadn't been updated since April 2006. It used to be my task but my work for BlenderNation simply took too much of my time. The crowd was getting restless...
Fortunately Groo [Fweeb on the forums] stepped in and offered his help. Groo was a member of the SIGGRAPH boothcrew and gave some really cool fluid demos there. He created the Firefox commercial in Blender and also organised a Blender workshop for teens at the Red Hat summer tech camp. We figured busy people like that can always handle a bit more work ;-)
Anyway, enough about all that. Hurry to the updated gallery and start enjoying the art there!
Groo: I think you did an outstanding job on the new page and I'm thrilled to see new art appear there! Thank you.
