What is interesting about it? First of all it has changed its layout. Now you can easily read it on your computer without zooming the page. I think it is much more convenient. Besides, there are a lot of things to learn: art gallery, interview, Python programming, and some surprises. Download it here.
Nasa Contest Follow Up
Clicked on the Nasa Art Contest related link at the bottom of a post just to see if anything new was there.

The comment was made back in May, but still good news.

Last November 29 I held a workshop for the students of Chang Kai Shek College in Manila, Philippines. I covered topics from the most basic (interface, 3D view manipulation, primitives, etc.) to some intermediate ones like character modelling, rigging, skinning, and character animation. It was so much fun conducting the workshop, not to mention the unfortunate events that happened when I got there. :-p Report here.
