Blender 2.73 Release Notes

Work in progress release notes for Blender 2.73. You can download a test build with these improvements here: https://builder.blender.org/download/
List of missing notes: http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.73/missing
Cycles Rendering
Blender 273 cycles area light.png
Quite a few smaller Cycles improvements are new in Blender 2.73. E.g. support for cameras inside volumes and cubic voxels interpolations, faster rendering of volumes, improved rendering of area lights, viewport specularity,... And we now also support GeForce 9xx GPUs!
User Interface
Rl cycles world bg.png
A new Fullscreen mode displays an environment without any buttons or other "annoying" user interface elements. A number of Input Method Editors (IMEs) are now supported for complex non-latin character input (widely used in east-Asia). Pie menu interaction has been improved by using a confirm threshold and they now can contain nested Pie Menus. The 3D View, which is also a part of the UI, now has the option to display the world background, right from the viewport. Besides from that, there were lots of smaller improvements made.
Modeling
Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.73/Modeling
The Knife-tool now allows freehand cuts drawing and closing of cut-loops via double clicking. Selection during modeling has been improved by adding the ability to select similar regions, plus the select more/less function has gotten the option to skip adjacent faces. A few other improvements were made, like for the Bevel Modifier, Shapekeys,...

This is an exciting time, with the new-vamped Blender 2.5 currently under strong development. The alpha version is already very solid (try the latest build from graphicall.org - the "official" 2.5 alpha 2 on the Blender site, hmm, maybe not so stable). It's the perfect opportunity to get your feet wet with this marvellous and fun app, in readiness for the looming production-ready version 2.6. Start with basic 3D modeling, then to animating those models, then you can learn the video sequence editor (built-in NLE!) and even the built-in game engine! It's a powerful and actively-developed work of software art, I can only urge you to jump onboard and bring your dreams alive! I gave it a 10 for ease of use, not because it's easy (there is a considerable learning curve), but because once you've got your foot in the door, you begin to realise just how brilliantly-designed and fun this thing is! Congrats to the Blender Foundation (send 'em donations!). I've linked some guides (applicable to 2.5) that I can recommend for noobs to ease them gently into Blender. Happy blending!

I have tried all of the various "Personal Learning" versions of the major 3D packages, and I have to say that Blender can stand up to all of them any day. And it does it without being hobbled by resolution limitations or watermarks on your images.

The only thing that I don't like about it is that it does not seem to have a readily-apparent way to get the conventional 4-view setup that other packages have. Other than that, I really have no complaints. I use it primarily in Linux, and it's very fast. I can run it with ease, while Houdini Apprentice crashes my Linux system and wheezes hard in Vista.

I'll keep using Blender there until Lightwave shows up in Linux, and probably even beyond that. Even if they charged $100 for it, it's still a bargain. Fortunately, they don't.
