Install Blender 2.65a in Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal/Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin/11.10 Oneiric Ocelot/Linux Mint 14/13/12

Blender provides a broad spectrum of modeling, texturing, lighting, animation and video post-processing functionality in one package. Through its open architecture, Blender provides cross-platform interoperability, extensibility, an incredibly small footprint, and a tightly integrated workflow. Blender is one of the most popular Open Source 3D graphics applications in the world.

  • cycles CPU image textures were offset wrong by half a pixel compared to OpenGL/CUDA/OSL rendering.
  • Right click on 'confirm reload' crashes
  • Scaling normals with Alt (maintains shell thickness) producing wrong result.
  • blender-internal volume rendering, the camera inside volume wasn't accurate
  • when transforming, tapping shift twice and holding did not enable precision mode.
  • rotate around selection doesn't work when .blend saved in sculpt mode
  • Mask points are add offset for the mouse when adding on viewer node with aspect != 1
  • Bezier Curve Tilt in transform panel does not work beyond 360 degrees
  • Blender Crash when selecting "Point select mode" in Particle Mode with and 0 hairs object
  • vertex paint subtract mode was broken, always resulting in black.
  • Shift+Numpad 2/4/8 shortcuts for zoom in image and clip editor don't work in Windows, Use Ctrl+Numpad
  • GPU mipmap generation is not working on some ATI cards
  • Bevel wire edges would crash
  • Dynamic Paint modifier surfaces not copied

  • Vertex colors added to meshes with no faces whenver exiting/entering editmode
  • The Screw Tool in Edit Mode isn't calculating the correct angle step divisions per turn
  • Motion blur with shutter time > 1 did result in the correct evaluation of some modifiers because it set the subframe to values > 1.
  • Add subframe support for shape keys.
  • Point density texture was using an current frame value that was never set.
  • Game-Engine did not convert objects with rotation modes other than Euler XYZ correctly
  • Manipulator showing incorrect local axes in armature pose mode.
  • Masking keyframes disappear from dope sheet when using undo.
