New manual chapter 3.3.1 Editors - UV-Image Editor by tools.pdf

3.3.1 Editors - UV-Image Editor by tools.pdf is the next new chapter in the manual. The chapter 3.1.1 - 3D View by tools - Tool Shelf.pdf got also a few updates. Mark and clear seams was missing.

This closes the changes at the manual for Bforartists 1. Rewriting the manual to Bforartists 2 will be a completely different chapter, and a completely different manual then.

Back at work

Hey Folks,

The development of Blender 2.8 has grown to a point where we can say if it makes sense to continue with the active development of the fork. The question to stop the fork was risen since the Blender developes finally fixes so much at  the UI.

To make it short, it makes still sense to continue. As expected it's the whole usability philosophy that still suffers. On the positive side, lots of things have changed to better. Kudos to the Blender developers, they did a great job at some ends. They have even finally made the 3D cursor hidable. Something that Bforartists had from the first moment on. They have now icon buttons in the tool shelf too. And will surely borrow a few more things from Bforartists.

Reupload of the Windows 64 Bit installer

We had a litte problem in the installer for the 64 Bit windows version. The file association with Blender files did not work. Some cobolds deleted a vital part in the installer script. The cobolds are catched, the installer is now fixed and reuploaded.

We recommend to uninstall the old version, redownload the 64 Bit installer, and reinstall Bforartists when the file association is missing. The new installer version will add the file association with blend files then. To check if it has worked, right click at a blend file, choose "open with", and there you should find Bforartists in the list now.

Sorry for the inconvenience folks. Some bugs always makes it through ...

Bforartists 1.0.0 released

This is it. Version 1.0.0 is gold. This development cylce is finished. Many thanks for all the help and support. Thanks to the team members. Enjoy Bforartists Smile

The download can as usual be found in the download section. We have also as usual first the Windows binaries ready. The Mac version will most probably follow this weekend. We have unfortunately still no good news for Linux. We have no maintainer for it anymore. But you can always build it by yourself. The source code is at Github. And the advice how to compile Blender works for Bforartists in the same way.
The release notes are located here: https://www.bforartists.de/wiki/bforartistsreleasenotev100
