Yeah, that's what I thought. When normal people see such a small advance they actually think that blender 2.49 is almost the same as 2.5, like with a few fixed bugs or something... I think it actually makes sense to ditch the x.xx format and just do the date format. Like Blender 2010. Or something s...

I really have no idea why the new blender is not called Blender 3 I think it makes no sence, that after a completele rewrite with ultra mega super improvements we rise the version only by 0.11 The least what could be done right now is to call the first stable release 2.5 And after the "Rendering foc...

I also wish they would make an integrated zsketch like thing in blender.

Yes, you ARE missing something :) The Space bar opens a search box, you can search for ANY command in Blender, not just the ones that were previously in the space menu... This is really convenient. The "ADD" menu is Shift-A now. Though I would prefer if the ADD menu remained as "Space" and the Searc...

PAINFULL (vertex pushing ) requiring about 300% more inputs than other progs Moving vertexes is as easy as pressing and dragging the right mouse button.Then clicking to confirm the position. You can even turn on the "Drag Immediately" in the preferences, so it wouldn't require you to confirm. But i...

Do you know how UV maps work?
I'd suggest looking at UV unwrap tutorials for blender.

Are you from the yafaray team?
If not, then why are you doing this?
There will be and official release of yafaray for blender 2.5 soon.
Won't that feel like you've wasted time?

Not that i want to stop you, i just want to know.
It's something i wouldn't do if i were a programmer. :)

Shift Ctrl alt C WOW, now that's a hand crushing hotkey for origin changing. And i really don't like that the only way to change it in objects mode, is to snap it to cursor. And in Edit mode, you can move everything but the center... I would like it if you could change the origin by simply selecting...

Spritech.
I'd really suggest downloading Blender 2.5
Really easy to install:
Download, extract, use.

After playing in the new blender, you will never want to come back (unless you hate saving a lot?) the new GUI is awsom.

Yeah, third person. Most of what you wrote is true. Though i don't think you need to be super smart to use a 3D program. Myself, I'm bad at learning in school (now university)... I'm usually lazy, I do things at the last minute etc... But when it comes to things i like: Guitar, 3D etc, i think i lea...
