2.80 RC 2 Expected this Week, Final Release Delayed


Enough issues were found in the Release Candidate to delay the final 2.80 release. A second RC is expected this week, with the final release the week after.


  • The release candidate was released last week. (download, release notes)
  • We will do another release candidate end of this week with critical fixes, and then hopefully a final release next week. Developers should help with bug triaging, fixing critical bugs and reviewing bug fixes.
  • Jacques Lucke created a video demo of the particle node system under development. (video)
