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 ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.

    Turns out the color picker is only available in 2.70. And this shows just how long this new release is already in development (which is a good thing btw)! I really thought we had the value picker in 2.69 already. But no! Only in developer versions! To get it, have a look here:

    But since I am compiling Blender myself (which I can only recommend), I never touch the release versions anyway.
