Bforartists Version 0.2.2 is out. Grab it from the download section Smile

This release is rather small. The main work for this version was to develop the Important Hotkeys addon, which is included into Bforartists now. The scripting layout is changed, including some tweaks at the menu. It has now a File menu like every standard text editor. And we have some more minor tweaks like readded hotkeys, a handful new menu items and some more removed double entries. Really not this much.

A full list of the changes can be found in the release note:

The reason why i nevertheless release this version is that the next development step is a really big one. And so it can easily happen that there is no new release for half a year or even more.We have finally arrived at the prototyping for the new UI. Now comes lots of learning, toying around and experiments. And the decision if it really makes sense to migrate to QT as the new UI solution. Or if we stick with the current Blender UI solution.

Cool. What does the hotkey addon do?

Hey Draise. It displays the most important hotkeys in the upper left corner. As you can see in the shot Smile

The background is that a new user that opens the software for the first time is usually lost how to use the software. Since stuff like navigating the 3d space is usually hotkeyed. And has menu entries that are burried in the menu, or no menu entry at all. The important hotkey addon shows you some of those hotkeys. So that you don't need to do a big research or to watch tons of tutorials first that explains you the basic useages. You can immediately start using the software.
