There’s news at my Blender Fork Bforartists. Version 0.4.0 is the final stroke below two very big issues that did not work for me. The try to implement the UI solution Qt. And the try to implement new Editor types. This two biggies have eaten lots of time, without a visible result. And that’s why the version 0.4.0 is rather small. The 0.4 series will be reserved for some smaller adjustments instead.
Highlights of this new version: GPU rendering is now possible. I had totally overlooked that Cuda did not work in Bforartists. The new icons became a refinement. They look now (hopefully) much better. The Add menu is now finally completely in the Tool Shelf. And we have a new menu called navi. It contains the navigation tools. The Navigation menu was formerly burried in the Views menu. To have it top level makes it possible to remove the Transform panel from the Tool Shelf.
