Blender 2.56 Beta Released

Posted: July 22, 2010
The first beta of Blender 2.5+ was released.
Here is an excerpt from the Blender.org website:

What to Expect

Big improvements - This software has been used extensively in production of the Durian open movie project "Sintel".
Feature complete - Although some of the 2.5 targets have been postponed, such as multi-window support showing multiple scenes, a full RNA data level dependency graph, or radial menus.
Exciting improvements in Sculpting - Faster, much more stable and better brushes.
Missing/Incomplete Features - Although really most of it is there, not all functionality from 2.4x has been restored yet. Some functionality may work in a different way. Some features are still slower to use than before.
Bugs - We've fixed a lot lately, but there are still quite a few bugs.
Changes - If you're used to the old Blenders, Blender 2.5 may seem quite different at first. Be prepared to read a bit about this, how to reconfigure things, and learn to use the new built-in 2.5 search functionality!
