I can’t wait until all the old blender stuff is lost and every thing is switched to the new 2.5 setup and stuff.
Hasn’t it already? All the new addons won’t work with the old blender versions.
I still use the 2.48x & 2.49x versions of blender. It suits me for my needs and the documentation is excellent. At the extreme, I am confident that the basic principles of 3d core will apply, no matter what the version, or program.
Well at any rate…
I switched some time ago to 2.5x, and the #1 reason why I did it was “Color Management,” i.e. linear color-spaces. I held off for quite a long time to give the 2.5x series time to mature. But, it is mature now, and definitely an improvement over the old system … and not just in terms of the user-interface. If you have not yet “taken the plunge,” I would cordially invite you to do so now.
