Blender 2.81 released

Today the Blender Foundation released the latest stable version of Blender, 2.81. This is the much anticipated update of the Blender 2.80 milestone, with over a thousand fixes and several important updates that were planned for the 2.8 series. Most notable are the sculpting tools overhaul, support for NVIDIA RTX ray tracing in Cycles, Intel Open Image denoising and user interface improvements.

Special thanks goes to everyone who contributed: developers, writers, scripters, bug reporters, reviewers, demo artists, and of course all of the members of the Development Fund!
