So, I am a bit late to the party as this was actually announced on the 22nd, but the newest version of Blender, 2.57a has been released. As Blender is one of the primary tools we will be using to create our game even a minor bug fix release is important. A full list of bug fixes is available here. No new shiny sexy features, but 100 less bugs is nothing to sneeze at.
If you haven’t already, go ahead and download Blender here.
