2.8 actual release date?

It’s July…
I only ask because I want to make my official add on release coincide in such a way that people won’t ask “where is the 2.7 version at?” …
Maybe i’m lazy, maybe 2.7 sucks compared to 2.8. that’s up for discussion/debate but not in this thread please.

Any insight on an actual date (or a hey it was released x minutes ago) appreciated :wink:

The 11 of July that’s what Pablo mention in Blender today!

Thanks for the straight answer ( and I’m kinda glad I have a couple days of slack to re-test stuff :P)

I read that 11th July for RC1 and then a week to 2 weeks for final. Maybe this has changed.

Good thing there is a thread with the meeting notes.
From yesterday:

" * We are still aiming for a Blender 2.80 release candidate on July 11."

Final version…

Hopefully before Blender Foundation - Community meeting at SIGGRAPH 2019 on Monday, 29 July 2019 from 3:30pm - 4:30pm in Room 503.

Where Blender chairman Ton Roosendaal will present current Blender open source projects, including time for audience feedback and participation.
