So it looks like Blender 2.73 is on its way with release candidates available at blender.org/download. Once again I apologize for the long wait between releases of Sensei Format and Zero Brush. This new version has some incredible new features such as a massive update to the grease pencil tool which will probably end up revolutionizing animation in general, at the very least, open source 2D animation. Check the amazing video out at the bottom. As far as core features, there aren’t to many changes so this shouldn’t be to much of a hindrance to getting the next SF and Zero Brush out. I know the wait has been long and painful but bare with me a little longer. I’m now aiming development for release with Blender 2.73 (this should not add a longer wait at all, just letting you know).
I guess I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that I can’t at all predict the future. The problem is, there’s no way for me to calculate the added amount of time that each new breakthrough is going to add. In other words, when ever I make a new tool, it often becomes apparent to me what new avenues and problems can now be solved in other areas of Blender with the new tools. And then this chain of events tends to stack up on itself. Listening to several lectures from John Carmack (creator of Doom), I’m guessing he knows what I mean. Bizarre how innovation can sometimes slow down the release of a project instead of speed it up. All the updates are coming soon. Amazing things are coming soon. Look for their release sometime after the official release of 2.73. The holidays have cut in a smidge into development time, but I’m back at it full steam. That’s all I can say for now.
