When will be new version of blender?
I believe you need to look around the Elysiun forums for a while. Blender ceased operations last March and ended with version 2.26 (I believe) which was a purchased version. The last free version was 2.23 which is available several places including my site.
With the news from Ton that Blender may be resurrected, a new version is likely to happen as long as the money can be raised. So, I advise that you go to www.blender3d.com and make a contribution if you want to see that next version any time soon!
CurtisS: a little correction though. the last version was 2.25. Although 2.26 was planned, it was never released.
Right. 2.26 was the OSX version I was planning on buying…
