I’m a little confused and actually concerned nothing has happened at Blender in Amsterdam. And, the reason for that confusion is a test build of 2.79a was set for Wednesday of this week was my understanding. The reason for the concern is major events can happen in any workplace. So here’s hoping that the latter is not the case.
For my limited skills, not exactly pushing the envelope, 2.79 could be the last Blender on my machine and given some new features and bug fixes I’m not all that excited about 2.8. Hell the work Lukas is doing with the denoiser is the only thing that could bring me screaming into 2.8.
That being said I understand the reason behind it and why some Blender Heads and studios are excited. The security concerns it seems are shared by 3d programs used in major studios as well as anything Autodesk puts out. So while it’s understandable Ton would walk back the young mans comment what damn program or app can be bullet proof where these creepy crawlers are concerned.
