Look out everyone, we are on the verge of the next great Blender release. After the CVS freeze shortly after our last report, the cvs has been filled everyday with bug fixes. The freeze means that nothing new should be added, but there are on occassion a few commits that are just a little more than bug fixes.
Ben Batt (artificer) added a pretty significant commit for the UVProject Modifier:
1) Addendum to UVProject's multiple UV handling - "Override Image" button = * Added an "Override Image" button to the UVProject modifier; this overrides faces' currently assigned image with the one given in the modifier panel. This provides some of the functionality previously provided by the "Add UVs" button - you still need to add a UV layer manually, but you only need to change the image in one place.
2) Updating the UVProject modifier to handle multiple UV layers by adding a UV layer menu to the UVProject modifier
Jean-Michel Soler's (JMS) latest version of his Google Earth importer was quietly added.
Sure, the RC3 builds are out, but what if you are looking for optimized builds with a splash screen by Basse? Then you're in luck! Check out BlenderBuilds and download our latest release.
