Blender 2.7

Blender took a big step in version 2.80, bringing amazing features but also breaking compatibility with certain hardware and features. It’s always recommended to use the latest stable release (4.0.2), but if you still need Blender 2.7 you can always get the official Blender 2.79b release.

You can also download the experimental nightly build from July 2019 which basically looks like 2.7 plus additional bug fixes and some new features that later became part of 2.80.
