2.48a Update Release


After the delay of Yo Frankie a new bug fix version of 2.48 (2.48a) has been released.

"A couple of important bugfixes has been done in Blender since the release, especially for using the Game Engine and GLSL."

Theres a nice long list of bug fixes which you can read about here.

And of course Blender 2.48a can be downloaded from the Get Blender page on


  1. weight heat dose not work well,i tested my file armature on 2.46 and 2.47 and it work fine,except in 2.48
    version. Ok whats missing here?

  2. I have a question , have anyone problem with particles? i made simple animation ,2 objects one emiter second reactor ,and when i will bake ,the particles sometimes bake somteimes no ,i don't realy know what to do?
    Reactor has object groups in visualistaion ,cheers.

  3. Just want to say i LOVE the basics of blender's UI. It is pure genius.

    I haven't been able to try 2.48 because I get a garbled screen if I use anything other than "No DRI", which comes with most linux packages of it, but since I haven't seen any 2.48 packages for Mandriva, and I do not know how to achieve "no dri" myself, I am missing out at the moment

  4. Nice update, but I am back to 2.47 whenever I have to UV map anything (which of course is almost every model I make.

    Who decided that "Draw shadow mesh" was no longer needed? Bad decision...

    The rest of it is great, I like some of the new modifiers in particular.

  5. I would so like to use GLSL shaders, but still the ATI and Blender don't like each other. Does the Blender use some odd extensions or what?

  6. Thanks for the grease pencil! It will help my animation workflow to be faster and easier. A really nice update! Blender keeps getting so much better every few months.

  7. """Blender is not showing installed python with 2.48, anyone else?"""
    in case you use 64bit blender you also have to use 64bit python. maybe that's the reason?

  8. I've had to reinstall 2.46 because I couldn't save any blend files using 2.48a (Vista 32) - is anyone else having similar problems?

  9. Update: Please ignore the above post, I've chosen "Run as Administrator" via the shortcut - this seems to be the solution.

  10. Only windowed mode in 2.48a 32bit & 64bit linux & windows versions.
    Yafray not working with 2.48a. No Python for Blender 64bit windows version.
