Blender Foundation: Status Update Week 43

So, a quick status update from last week. During the begin of the week I was busy with fixing up our installer script, so that it won’t delete everything without properly warning and so on. After that I did release log work, some SVN and tracker stats for the period Blender 2.54-Blender 2.55. On Thursday I travelled to the Netherlands or the Blender Conference 2010, so I haven’t been able to do much sensible on the bug tracker or related work. On next Tuesday I’ll probably will finally press the release button on 2.55. I hope the users can wait … Continue Reading

Rest assured, with all the current … Continue Reading

Both own implementation had the good part that they were light, but that was only the feature request part – no … Continue Reading

Blenderstorm BETA

For some time I have been working on bringing back Blenderstorm, along side my current main project (Naali development, integrating Verse as a tech demo, which will be cool for another post next week). I’ve now put up a test site at http://beta.blenderstorm.org, where I invite people to register, testdrive the site and report obvious bugs in functionality (SQL errors, things like that).

Next to bug hunting the single biggest task is still ahead: themeing of Blenderstorm. I ask readers to propose designs (maybe even … Continue Reading
