And here comes Bforartists 2 version 2.5.0 :)

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
The sourcecode can be found at Github. https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforarti ... tag/v2.5.0
And the release note is here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

Bforartists 2.5.0 brings the fixes and changes from Blender 2.90. And some minimal corrections and fixes that we have found at our way through the missing manual chapters. Bforartists 2.5.0 is based on Blender 2.91 Alpha.

We have also updated the manual. All chapters are written now, so it is feature complete. And this means this chapter is finally finished, and we can continue to develop the software now. The focus was at the manual for a while.

The download offers for linux are now reduced to two. tar.gz and deb. RPM seems not longer supported by Blender, the script is missing. And i never managed to get SH to work. Linux remains a difficult chapter.

Many thanks to the team and everybody involved. Have fun with the new version - Reiner

Hello friends,

Completely forgot to post here too. Sorry. We have meanwhile arrived at Bfoartists version 2.7.0.

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
The sourcecode can be found at Github. https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforarti ... tag/v2.7.0
And the release note is here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

Bforartists 2.7.0 brings the fixes from Blender 2.91.2. It also brings quite a few new features from Blender 2.92 alpha. Like the new geometry node editor. Bforartists 2.7.0 is already based at Blender 2.93 Alpha.

In Bforartists we have fixed the usual things like aligning ui content left, and adding new icons to the new tools. The new geometry nodes can already be inserted from the sidebar instead of the add menu. Most of the nodes have an icon now in the header, which makes it easier to distinguish them in the node viewport. We did quite a few changes at the layout, like in the transform panel. Now you can animate from there, no need to dive into the properties editor anymore. Quite a few panels written in C code have now left aligned content. The adjust last operation panel for example. The align view buttons addon up right is extended. Some editors have now the options as a dropdown panel up right. And we did lots of smaller refinements, changes, improvements and fixes.
All in all we have fixed 124 issues in this release.

Many thanks to the team and everybody involved. Have fun with the new version - Reiner

hey i dont know what changed from last time, but iam miraculously able to do things in "blender"!!! what?? never expected this to happen. Even it has some kind of material editor that is fast to work with.
Btw: how do I render current view and not the camera view?

and i have to figure out how to set the GI basic "fill" component of lighting in cycles or whatever. Its a bit too bright sometimes.

But ya, its looking very very good. Iam tinkering with it and its almost as comfy as trueSpace. Well not equal but comfy enough to work with it even tho iam spoiled with tS UI!

Well DONE!

Hey Friends,

I have completely overlooked this thread. So sorry for the late answer. To render in the Viewport is done by changing the shading method up right to Rendered.

And we have arrived at Bforartists 2.9.0 meanwhile ^^

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
The sourcecode can be found at Github. https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforarti ... tag/v2.9.0
And the release note is here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

Bforartists 2.9.0 brings the new features and fixes from Blender 2.93 LTS. Bforartists 2.9.0 is already based at Blender 3.0 Alpha.

The first major project concerns the Tool Shelf. Bforartists 2.9.0 brings back the tool shelf tabs. Most of the content from the header text menus can now also be found in the tool shelf as icon buttons. The tabs are optional. You can deactivate it.

The second big project in this version was the new Geometry Nodes Editor. The content of the Add menu in the Geometry Node Editor is now also available here in the sidebar in panels, if desired as icons. The nodes now each have an icon in the viewport.

Another big ongoing project is to split the tooltips by tool. Blender unfortunately still has a single tooltip and a tool name for up to 6 different tools. And we've made the usual little tweaks and changes. New UI content aligned to the left, human-understandable tooltips incorporated, new icons created for the new tools, and so on. All in all, there are over 280 changes in this version.

Many thanks to the team and everybody involved. And a special Thanks goes to Iyad Ahmed to re-enable the tool shelf code, and to Tymen Muller for this great splash screen image.

Have fun with the new version - Reiner

As with every release, and even more with this milestone release, i want to thank everybody involved for your support and help and passion for this project. It was as usual a great ride and a pleasure to work with you all :)
