Blender Fork Bforartists Version 0.9.4 released

Post by Tiles » 16 Sep 2017, 16:47

Hey folks, we have a new version ready :)

Bforartists 0.9.4 is ready. Currently there are just the Windows binaries available. But Linux and Mac builds should follow shortly. You can grab it in the download section: https://www.bforartists.de/content/download

The new version brings all the goodies from Blender 2.79. Like Denoiser, PBR Shader, Shadow Catcher, Flimic Color Management, etc. . Please have a look at the Blender 2.79 release note at the Blender page for the new features. Important is the compatibility note. Blender 2.79 is not fully backwards compatible to earlier version anymore. And this affects of course Bforartists 0.9.4 too.

The changes in Bforartists itself since the last version sums up to over 100 changes again, but are each rather small. The last weeks and months were in big parts spent at documentation and tutorials. Unbelievable how time consuming this chapter is. That's why Bforartists 0.9.3 brings mainly fixes and some small changes and cleanup operations. And we had some inconsistencies in the hotkeys again. F2 to call the console is removed since it conflicts with Linux build. The Properties sidebars now all opens with Ctrl T, not longer with N. And we have readded the hotkey to Loopcut and Slide, since it is a fundamental modeling tool, and often used.

For the changes please have a look at the Bforartists 0.9.3 release note. Version 0.9.4 was an emergency release because of a showstopper, and fixes just one bug. The release notes can be found here: https://www.bforartists.de/wiki/release-notes

There is also a quickstart tutorial series available to get you started:

Have Fun

That's the result of merging the new Blender features regularly into a branch every one or two weeks. That way you just have to merge the branch into the master at the end. But that's the time consuming part. I have sometimes spent days to get it back working after the merge ^^

We are meanwhile at version 0.9.5. Some more merge regressions kicked us into the butt.
