Blender 2.56a or 2.62?

Hi everyone,
I’m new to Blender and just bought these two books to help me get into it:

- Blender for Dummies
- Blender Foundations

They both cover v2.5 so my concerns are wether the latest version of Blender differs significantly from the 2.5 version (in that case I should probably install 2.5 from the DVD that came with the book) or if they are so similar that I won’t suffer from installing the latest version?

Install 2.62, there is little difference between 2.5 and 2.6 if you’re just starting to use blender.

Ok. Thanks :slight_smile:

The interface was redone in 2.5, so anything after that you shouldn’t find that many differences. There are just some more features and bugfixes. You can always have both versions installed, so you can check 2.5 to see if something changed.
