  1. Crashes on both my laptop -->problem occuring when reading prefs.blend

    and desktop (i7+Nvidia 1080) --> problem with vertices number (which didn't happen under 2.79a)
    Both machines are running Linux Mint

  2. Selecting high poly objects in main scene view is so slowly and must find object in outliner then select it.
    also blender need a good remesh modifier in scluptting to Zbrush. in zbrush you can easily get fine mesh after remesh it.
    also vertex painting in multi resolution is not possible !
