Blender 2.67b Released


blender_logo_shinyThe Blender Foundation has released a second bugfix release for 2.67b, which solves over 30 issues.

Too many good bugs were reported and solved in the last week, especially for features that used to work fine before. So there's a Blender 2.67b for download available now!


About Author

Bart Veldhuizen

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 ;-)


  1. 2.67 release: May 7th, 2013.
    2.67a release: May 21st, 2013
    2.67b release: May 30th, 2013

    Over 100 fixes made it in the 2.67a update
    Over 30 fixes made it in the 2.67b update

    Over 130 Fixes ? that´s a lot, but they work so hard

    i just want to test 2.68 ( that version ) shall be awesome, i can´t wait for it :)

  2. I am very impressed with this bug fix speed. I am Softimage user and it take half year (actually 1 year) for releasing some bug fix. I reported many bugs to support Softimage, but it is still there after 3 years! This is reason, why I started with learning Blender. Really great support. When I will finish with my learning I will prepare some article Softimage vs Blender ( maybe vs Maya too :) )

  3. hi people, i used Softimage, i used maya as well and of course i´m using Blender right now, Softimage is a gr8 tool ( really gr8 ) work flow very fast and stable, Maya is an impressive tool but not stable at all, Blender still has many bugs and i know they´re gonna fix it very soon ( viewport ) for example, but i prefer Blender, it needs fix a lot of bugs but i prefer blender anyway, that´s the only software opensource worthy, i hate Gimp, it doesn´t have powerful tools, it´s amazing but not worthy for me, i saw impressive arts but it´s not powerful, i prefer PhotoShop ( the best software ever ), Blender And PhotoShop ( the best fusion )

    • I've noticed any stability issues with Maya, even when I used it full-time for work.

      I'm not saying this is your reason for instability, but when I hear people complain about problems, it's often because they don't have the proper system requirements.

        • I’m not saying this is your reason for instability, but when I hear people complain about problems, it’s often because they don’t have the proper system requirements

          you got it !

          but i have a monster at home hahahha

          now i have 2 video cards ( 4GB )
          RAM 24 GB
          i7 3.8 Ghz
          1 TB HDD
          windows 7 ultimate

          and i have issues with Maya, it crashes some times and the software gets slow sometime as well

          with Blender i have several issues ( that´s terrible ), starting with ViewPort and others, but it´s more stable than maya, and work flow faster than maya, softimage is impressive, it´s better than maya, mobo as well, maya is awesome ( indeed ), but it´s not stable, and if it were stable ( i wouldn´t use it ), because i love the work flow ( with blender ) and it´s a little bit more stable, mmm houdini is amazing ( i have never used it ) and i don´t know if someday i use it, i think houdini is better than maya, many people love houdini and i know the reason, the arts and videos are totally impressive

          Blender is going well, they work very fast fixing any issues and i greatly appreciate it, but Blender needs more powerful tools than other software have, hope they add them soon, starting with explode modifier and fixing viewport issue

          hope you are fine timmyelliot

          catch you later... kind regards.... :)

  4. PLEASE i have 1 question....

    will Blender be opensource forever ? or more ahead will be shareware ?

    i do this question because blender is unbelievable and because they fix bugs very fast, a lot of work on it, i think blender will be shareware in future ( i hope ) blender be forever opensource, because i´ll say if blender becomes shareware in future, believe me ( blender dies ) that´s for sure !!!!!

    mmmm what do you think about it ?

    that interrogant is killing me :( hehe

    what you guys think about that ?

    i´d like knowing what you think about it

    interesting thread

      wtf is that? : x

  5. hi plunntic, i can´t stop laughing, why did you say wtf ? that´s not polite :) hehe

    no one knows in future, everything can happen, don´t you ?

    many people can think that, i hope not, blender is becoming the best cgi software on the net, in future that can change, no one knows or perhaps you know what´s going on... ? and tell us if blender will be opensource forever or will change for shareware

    i think it´s an interesting thread because blender is really an outstanding software, who knows... perhaps will change or stay opensource forever, i think it is interesting this thread

    kind regards
