Blender is the open source software for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, post-production, interactive creation and playback. Available for all major operating systems under the GNU Public License.
The upcoming 2.44 release is an upgrade for 2.43, with mostly two months of fixing reported problems and a couple of nice new features, of which two are worth mentioning now:
- 64 bits safe code and files
- SSS subsurface scatter render
After this release, the big event/took/UI code reconstruction project will start, leading to the 2.50 release.
