By Avatar JayR Cela

    Well this should be good news to just about everyone involved within the Open Meta~Verse world of professional's and hobbyist alike. The Blender Foundation, an open source community who's driven goal is to deliver top quality 3D content creation tools to the mass's, available on the Linux, Mac and Windows platforms.  This newest release offers many complex tools to let your creative graphic's abilities really shine.

    However there is a rather steep learning curve, fortunately there are a ton of tutorial's widely available just about everywhere on the Web, including TBF's own web site. If you have found yourself frustrated in the past trying to make it through the myriad complexities of available options, this may be the release you have been waiting for.

    Here are a few of the newest features.

1) A revamped User Interface including the use of Pie Menus.

2) Improved rendering capabilities, taking better advantage of your GPU abilities.

3) An entire host of new 3D modeling tools, dealing with surface faces, improved vertex shader manipulation,  improved light ray casting, new sculpt and freehand creation tools, a bunch of other wonderful stuff and,  a more forgiving Un-Do function too.

    Anyway's it's definitely worth checking out.
