News: Blender 2.53 Beta 1 Available

The Blender Foundation and online developer community is proud to present Blender 2.53 Beta. This release is the first official beta release of the Blender 2.5 series, representing the culmination of many years of redesign and development work.

What to Expect

  • Big improvements - This software has been used extensively in production of the Durian open movie project "Sintel".

  • Feature complete - Although some of the 2.5 targets have been postponed, such as multi-window support showing multiple scenes, a full RNA data level dependency graph, or radial menus.

  • Exciting improvements in Sculpting - Faster, much more stable and better brushes.

  • Missing/Incomplete Features - Although really most of it is there, not all functionality from 2.4x has been restored yet. Some functionality may work in a different way. Some features are still slower to use than before.

  • Bugs - We've fixed a lot lately, but there are still quite a few bugs.

  • Changes - If you're used to the old Blenders, Blender 2.5 may seem quite different at first. Be prepared to read a bit about this, how to reconfigure things, and learn to use the new built-in 2.5 search functionality!
