Windows Installer:

Bforartists Version 0.9.5 Windows 64 Bit - 82.3 Mb

Bforartists Version 0.9.5 Windows 32 Bit - 75.8 Mb

Note that the installers are currently not digigally signed since this would cost lots of money. And so Windows moans about potential dangerous software, and gives a warning at install. The installer is of course not dangerous. It just has no commercial digital signature. You can always use the zipfile versions below when you don't trust the installer. It's the same content.

Source Code Download

 

The actual sourcecode can be found on the Github project site: https://github.com/Bforartists/Bforartists

For older source code versions see below.

Please use the libraries from Blender to compile.

In case that you want to compile Bforartists by yourself, the advice is the same as for Blender. And can be found here:

Here's the advice for Linux: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Doc/Building_Blender/Linux
Here's the advice for Mac: https://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Doc/Building_Blender/Mac

For Windows have a look here: http://www.bforartists.de/data/tuts/Building_Bforartists_with_Cmake_and_...

 


Developer Build

 

The Developer Build is an actual development snapshot. It is Windows only, only available as a zip file, and it is undocumented, besides the entries at Github and the as solved marked issues in the tracker. It is meant for users that are not able to compile the source code, but wants to have a look at what the current state of development is.

Use at own risk. The dev build is compiled from the master, and should work. But there may be broken or missing features. Please report them when you find something.

Don't expect daily builds.

Note that there is no version hint in the developer build. It shows the splashscreen and version number from the last official release when you start it. The folder name shows you the creation date. The newer, the more actual.

The last version that worked with Windows XP is for example Bforartists 0.8.0.
