Bforartists 3 Version 3.1.3

Hello Friends,

A showstopper bug made it necessary to release a new version. Bforartists 3 Version 3.1.3 fixes three small bugs and this showstopper bug. At some PC’s Cuda cards was not detected, and so it was not possible to render at the GPU.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bforartists 3 version 3.0.1

Bforartists 3 version 3.0.1

Hello Friends,

There is a new Blender version available, and so we release a new version too. We have released a new version of Bforartists, Version 3.0.1.
Bforartists is a fork of the popluar open source 3D software Blender. With the goal to improve the graphical UI and usability.

The binary downloads can as usual also be found in the download section of the official webpage. www.bforartists.de/download/
The sourcecode can be found at Github. github.com/Bforartists/Bforartists/releases/tag/v3.0.1
And the release note is here: www.bforartists.de/release-notes/

Bforartists 3 Version 3.0.1 comes with all the bugfixes from Blender 3.0.1. Blender 3.0.1. has fixed over 80 bugs.

One of the last big projects in Bforartists is fulfilled. All text and properties are now left aligned in the modifiers too. The experimental keymap with F to center at the view and X C V to adjust the brushes is now the main keymap. As a reminder, here you can find a pdf file with the vital changes in the new keymap: www.bforartists.de/data/tuts/experimental_changes.pdf

The rest is the usual work to keep Bforartists updated with the Blender changes. Align all the new middle alignend things left in the UI, create new icons, fix oddities. All in all we have around 110 changes in this release.

This release ends the current development cycle. Our design goals for Bforartists are largely met. And we fade slowly into a maintaining development status to keep our changes stable, consistent and up to date with Blender. But we won’t stop to make Bforartists better and better.

As with every release, friends, It was me a pleasure to work with you. And many thanks to our users too for supporting us!

Have fun with the new version. Enjoy Bforartists 🙂
