Autodesk releases Mudbox 2025

Autodesk has released Mudbox 2025, the latest version of its digital sculpting software.

The release notes read, in full: “Welcome to Mudbox 2025. This release includes minor updates.”

Fourth consecutive update with no new features listed
Although Autodesk did previously put out more substantial releases, Mudbox 2025 is now the fourth consecutive annual update with no new features listed in the release notes.

While the previous three updates included new Windows, Linux and macOS installers, this time, there are no specific improvements or bugfixes mentioned at all.

When we contacted Autodesk, the company provided this list of changes. Two are updates to Autodesk backend technologies, one is a bugfix, and one is the removal of an outdated library.
