The second 2.74 release candidate is available now.
Aside of improvements in many areas (hair systems, opengl viewport rendering) a lot of work was done on stabilizing and fixing. Quality for users is still our prime concern!
Here are 18 most anticipated development projects that will make 2015 an even more awesome year for everyone.
Happy new year!
Blender is being made by hundreds of people from around the world; by studios and individual artists, professionals and hobbyists, scientists, students, VFX experts, animators, game artists, modders, and the list goes on.
All of them are united by the desire to have access to a fully free/open source 3D creation pipeline.
Volunteers are welcome to work on parts of the software, on the websites, documentation, education, design proposals, testing, and many more topics.
