Blender 2.69 Testbuild 1

I noticed on BlenderNation that the first test build of Blender 2.69 is available

Download :

To help the devs be sure to report any bug you may encounter to the bug tracker :

I thought the new way of releases should be put up officially on the website to encourage more testing?

I’m testing it, right now, on my iMac Intel Core i7/Nvidia 680mx and all I can say is that I like what I see:

The possibilities to extend boxes (material/shapes/vertex groups) and their search features are just GREAT! I just wanted it!

Also, a great improvement has been made when posing a character (with mesh deform, several objects under its influence and several armatures parented). Now it is just fast compared to official 2.68a release. Please devs, don’t break it in the final release!

anyone else having problems with pressure sensitivity in sculpt mode (radius)?

if I minimize the window to browse the internet or something and then go back to blender, the pressure sensitivity no longer works and I just got a fixed size stroke.
