- Alt-m in textwindow: copies the text to the active (3d) Font Object in 3D window
- support for Freetype fonts in 3D Font Object
- new & antialised fonts in interface (freetype)
- autoskinning for Armatures
- windows: clipboard support for cut/paste

Ah, now I can add my text for video presentations right into blender directly! no more need for Elefonts.

Gota love the autoskinning!

The most important thing though: the first step towards a more open shader system. Woohoo!

What do you mean?

instead of just having a blinn shading model (at least, I think Blender uses Blinn) it will have others, possibly Phong, Oren-Nayer Blinn, toon shading & if thats happening, then the possibilities there to introduce further models - like a sub surface scattering model perhaps? An occlusion shader? Saweeet!

hehe! it's the opposite:

blender uses phong, but cessen has introduced Toon shading and Blinn...

the next step will be a plugin system for the pixelshader (phong etc... will become plugons and other shading types could become programmable)
