New Features and Changes

About 90 bugs were fixed last week.

  • Workbench support for depth of field. (commit) (Clément Foucault)
  • Sculpt: add Topology Rake, to align edges along brush while painting. This helps to generate cleaner topology and define sharp features for dynamic topology. Best used on relatively low-poly meshes, it is not needed as much for high detail areas and has a performance impact. (Jean Da Costa)
  • macOS: add support for OpenMP, making smoke/fluid/cloth simulations faster. This bring macOS on par with Windows and Linux. (Arto Kitula)


  • Module owners are invited to test if clang-format gives good results for the code they maintain. To test, check out the temp-clang-format branch and run make format. This works on Linux and macOS only for now, Windows support needs to be added. Further, we are still mainly missing documentation. (task)

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.
