Bforartists 2 Alpha 0.8.0 released


#1

Hello Friends,

Blender 2.81 is out. And so there is also a new version from us. Bforartists 2 Alpha 0.8.0

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. https://www.bforartists.de/content/download
The sourcecode can be found at Github. https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforartists/releases/tag/vbfa2_0.8.0
And the release note is here: https://www.bforartists.de/wiki/bforartists2releasenotev080

Again we did lots of changes and improvements and cleanup work at the icons. Some icons looked too washy or ugly, so we updated them.

Besides that it was the usual minor fixes and tweaks to make the UI more consistent and user friendly. Like removing a not necessary confirmation dialog in the image editor, or adding some hotkey only functionality to the menus. We catched some bugs. It was for example impossible to rotate the view while in knife mode, sicne the right mouse button is occupied by the tool. We have added the Blender hotkey here now, Alt + MMB. We found and fixed some more menus with missing icons. Some context menus did not show, they are now also all iconized. Linux builds did have some wrong paths, which could collide with a Blender installation. We have also this time catched and removed a few double menu entries. And the new version comes of course with all the new features of Blender 2.81.

Bforartists is a fork of the popluar open source 3d software Blender. The primary goal of Bforartists is to deliver a better graphical UI and a better usability. Bforartists 2 Alpha 0.8.0 is based at Blender 2.82 Alpha. And is of course free.

A big thanks goes to the team. Have fun with the new version - Reiner

Still wish the nav widget was at the bottom right of the workspace. It just seems to me much more natural to keep the pointer at the bottom of the screen.

We can make it a task. But no promises :slight_smile:
