BF 2.7 was released

New in version 2.7

In Basic tools:
1. Rig performance was greatly increased
2. Rig for eyelids was fully recreated to avoid "jerks" of the lid and increase speed
3. Now BonyFace uses existing bones for head and neck instead of creating it's own ones
4. Fixed some Skin issues, now script doesn't ruin existing weights of vertices
5. BF toolbar was joind to BonyFace
6. New icon of BonyFace was painted, hope you'll like it
7. Fixed some bugs in Setup Rig window
8. Added some new Hide buttons in main window

In Extended tools:
1. Fixed some bugs in Poses, Face and Selector windows
2. Added some selection buttons in Poses window
3. Now you can save pose with a name, based on name of selected pose
4. Added some improvements in Grimace mode and whole Poses window
5. Fixed incorrect movement of eyes-target and jaw spline control in Face and Selector windows

BonyFace 2.6 was added on site (10 free sessions included) for anybody, who wants to test grimaces and other extended stuff.

bfs-files of 2.6 and 2.7 are 100% compatible.
Rigs of 2.6 and 2.7 aren't fully compatible, so you have to rig in 2.6 to operate extended tools of 2.6 correctly.
