Development

  • Blender 2.80 is now planned to be released tomorrow on July 30, we aim to add the last commits and make the builds today. See bf-committers for coordination.
  • The master branch is open for 2.81 development. The aim is to keep master stable at all times. As a reminder:
    • New features and changes must be complete.
    • Use code review.
    • Release notes must be ready along with the commit to master.
    • Add automated tests where possible.
    • Be available for bug fixes and feedback after committing.
  • Blender is now available on the Snap Store for Linux, maintained by the Blender Foundation. Thanks to Gustavo Niemeyer for helping set this up.

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.
