Sorry if this isn’t the right sub-forum. It seems to be the closest there is to a general Blender discussion.
Would anyone know if 2.79 will continue to receive patches/bug fixes (but no new features) once 2.80 is officially released?
I plan to use both versions side-by-side for the foreseeable future while slowly migrating to 2.80. The thing is I have some custom-made add-ons that I wrote myself that I just don’t have the time to port over to 2.80 at the moment. These aren’t QoL add-ons, but essential components to my workflow, namely custom import-export file formats for meshes and animations. I really like 2.80, but it’ll take me probably about a year to make a complete transition to it exclusively.
