Blender 2.80 RC Release Delayed


Some last-minute issues delayed the planned release for today. New builds have been prepared, but seeding all the mirrors takes too much time for a release today. More news tomorrow!

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


  1. Ok, this is too much for me !!!
    I quit blender and i go back to 3ds max... not !
    Just kidding ;)

    Tomorrow will be a great day for all of us !
    I love blender !
    Ton is my hero !

    • Come to the southern hemisphere - our seasons are reversed! December/January down on the beach... and it's seriously wet, windy and cold right now!

      Can't wait to see how usable the new version is....


    LOL, I half expected this when it was announced but I'm happy to wait...Keep up the good work B-Devs and don't burn yourselves out!

  3. We use for production in small projects the 2.80 since April and we are veryimpressed how stable is it.
    The RC will be much better than the final.version of many commerciald software.
