– Blender 2.46

The open-source 3D design too, Blender, has just been updated. I was up until well past midnight last night checking the website every half hour or so, waiting for this release… now I notice it’s up just as I’m on my way out the door. Oh well, I can look forward to using it tonight after the kids are in bed.

This version supports a new particle system with hair and fur combing tools, fast and optimal fur rendering, a mesh deformation system for advanced character rigging, cloth simulation, fast Ambient Occlusion, a new Image browser, and that’s just the beginning. Check the extensive list of features in the log below… have fun!
