The Blender Foundation has released Blender 2.60, marking the beginning of a new phase of development for the open-source 3D package.

As we reported last month, updates in Blender 2.60 itself include a new motion-capture toolset.

Other changes include new 3D audio and speaker objects; and improvements to the animation system, vertex weighting and the built-in game engine.

Unlike previous development cycles, the 2.6x series is primarily intended to integrate existing work from branches of the code into the core release.

According to blender.org: “The plan is to make a very tight schedule for this, with a bi-monthly release.”
