Back to Release notes overview

When you want to report a bug, then you can do it here:

The Bforartists 0.9.7 release brings mainly small tweaks and improvements. And the changes from Blender 2.79b. We have added two new addons. One for the VSE. And one to create primitives with adjustable subdivisions. See create tab in the tool shelf. Most tools are now in the tool shelf too. And not longer in header menus. The biggest change is the new Full keymap. Now you can have the navigation from Bforartists with most hotkeys from Blender.

Another change is that we have moved to the Github tracker. As a consequence the release note now not longer contains links to the issues. The listed titles here are the commits.
