Bforartists_releasenote_v0.2.0

Back to Release notes overview

This version is mainly about the merge of Blender 2.76 into Bforartists. Which is worth a new release. Since it brings a ton of new functionality. But we have also the first deeper cuts. Like no more game engine. Or some first obvious changes in the UI.
