The Bforartists 2 alpha 0.4.0 release ends the cleanup work after the merge of Blender 2.80 into Bforartists. It removes some double menu entries again. And catched a few missing icons again. And it starts with the changes at the actual interface. The text of the properties are now left aligned for better readability. View and Select menus are unified in look. The header is now divided into two sections instead of three. Left tools, right settings. Hundrets of tooltips have a tool name now. And it comes with some tweaks at the theme and the keymap. We had move with MMB and rotate with LMB in Bforartists 1. This was for no reason switched in Bforartists 2, which we have corrected now. All in all we have over 100 changes again.
