Blender have just released the first, and hopefully only, release candidate for Blender 2.80. Assuming no major show stopping bugs are found in the release candidate, Blender 2.80 final release should be just around the corner! You can download the release candidate here.
EDIT: The download link is now available right here.
Blender 2.80 has spent over 4 years in development and is absolutely packed with new features. The star of the show is EEVEE, the new real-time viewport renderer, but other major features include massively improved 2D creation and animation tools, Cycles renderer improvements and of course a completely new UI.
To learn more about Blender 2.80 be sure to check out the Blender 2.80 launch page. Much more in-depth details of the thousands of new features in Blender 2.80 are available in the extensive release notes. Or you can simply watch the video below!
Stay tuned for more in-depth coverage when Blender 2.80 is finally released in the coming days!
