Blender 2.80 Officially Released

Just thought I’d let BJS Blender users know that Blender 2.80 is officially out.

And I noticed these two little items from the Blender Home Page:

Today Ubisoft announced that they will join the Blender Foundation’s Development Fund as a corporate Gold member. Not only will Ubisoft help funding online support for Blender developers, Ubisoft Animation Studio – a department of Ubisoft Film and Television – will also use Blender for their productions and assign developers to contribute to Blender’s open source projects.


Epic Games, as part of the company’s $100 million Epic MegaGrants program, is awarding the Blender Foundation $1.2 million in cash to further the success of Blender

Future looking bright. I’m so glad that when @Deltakosh started the BJS voyage that he had the smarts to include Blender as a modeller, and that @JCPalmer has been so resolute in building and developing the exporter

Will raise a glass tonight to you two gentlemen.

cheers, gryff :slight_smile:


Hear, hear. Cheers! :wine_glass:

And those are some big numbers. In related news, 5G on the horizon.

Well-maintained open source software is very much like a fine wine.
