Hello Friends,

There is a new Blender version available. And so there is also a new version from us.

Bforartists 2.6.0 brings the fixes and changes from Blender 2.91. And it brings the first changes from the current development cycle of Bforartists. As usual it is not one big change. But includes lots of small changes like left aligned props which are now also in the panels that are C code based, better defaults, improved tooltips, panel layouts and organizations, and so on. Properties that shows hidden content have for example now a little triangle button besides. The content of panels is indent to improve readability and organization. Some changes at the keymap. F2 is now search. And some fixes. This release brings all in all over 230 changes.

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
And the release note can be found here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

Many thanks to the team and everybody involved. Have fun with the new version - Reiner

Hello Friends,

There is a new Blender version available. And so there is also a new version from us. Bforartists Version 2.4.0

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
And the release note is located here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

Bforartists 2.4.0 is a bug fix and maintenance release. It brings the fixes from Blender 2.83.3 LTS. And some minimal corrections and fixes that we have found at our way through the missing manual chapters and creating the quickstart tutorial videos. Our current main focus is to finish the manual. Bforartists 2.4.0 is now based on Blender 2.91 Alpha. Which is a switch in the Blender versioning number. And so you need to migrate your settings.

We have currently problems to compile the Linux versions in all its flavours. So for now we can just offer a zipped developer version. Compiled at Ubuntu 20.04. It is compiled with static libraries, so it should work at other linux versions.

The usual thanks goes to the team and everybody involved. Have fun with the new version - Reiner

Hello Friends,

This is it, we have released the final version of Bforartists 2.

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/download/
And the release note is located here: https://www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

We have found and fixed a hand full of last minute bugs. And we have readded the align view buttons from Bforartists 1 back into the header. I missed it too much in my workflow. And we have corrected a mistake at the versioning numbers. This is Bforartists 2. And so the version number should be Bforartists 2.0.0. It is now.

This release is a milestone release. It ends the development cycle for Bforartists 2, and continues the success story of the Bforartists project. This doesn't mean the end of development. Quite the opposite. This just means that we have finally a stable version that can be used in production. A version where we can finally make tutorials for again. The first quickstart videos are popping up at the moment. We will continue to release a new and updated version every time a new Blender version appears. And we will continue to improve Bforartists as good as we can.

But the focus of the next months will be at the manual and the tutorials. We have lots of gaps here that we need to close. And we need to close them first before we can go on with adding features.

Here we have created a video here that explains the differences between Blender and Bforartists in more details:

A very special thanks goes to the team and everybody involved and who has supported us. You have helped to make Bforartists possible. Have fun with the new version - Reiner
