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. Will any of these versions be available as installable .exe files? At my company, we have some security, and thus several of the .dll files will not run from the unzip-folder versions that have been plaguing 2.8 releases. I will never be able to use 2.8 at my current job until I can get a normal intall-version. Are there plans for this?
