New Blender Release 2.77
Staff Writer By: Ricky Grove (gToon)
The Blender Foundation has announced the immediate release of Blender build 2.77 available for free from Blender.org. Blender is the free, open source 3D application that is becoming increasingly powerful due to powerful community participation in the application's development. The Blender Foundation has also used several Blender film projects to develop the program along professional standards.
Blender 2.77 is a release packed with improvements and several new additions. In particular, I like the new Boolean editing in the Blender modeling improvements along with improvements in the Cycles rendering engine. But there are many more improvements. Here is a short list. Be sure to visit the Blender Dev/Ref/Release Notespage for complete info on Blender 2.77.
Blender 2.77 Release:
The new edit-mode Boolean tools
Blender is cross-platform and runs equally well on Linux, Windows and Macintosh computers. Its interface uses OpenGL to provide a consistent experience. To confirm specific compatibility, the list of supported platforms indicates those regularly tested by the development team.
As a community-driven project under the GNU General Public License (GPL), the public is empowered to make small and large changes to the code base, which leads to new features, responsive bug fixes, and better usability. Blender has no price tag, but you can invest, participate, and help to advance a powerful collaborative tool: Blender is your own 3D software.
