      Of course the things that needed to be fixed weren't. We still can't fully edit particle systems, there is still no render api, and no hint of volumetrics. Blender, "immensely popular" and frustratingly limited.

        you do know that they didnt plan to release a 2.49 version do you?
        they just did it to fill the gap between 2.48 and 2.5...
        just wait for 2.5...
        it will have loads of new features and will than rapidly evolve.

              That's the point where you recruit an artist to your game project.

                  Or you could, you know, support the project in any number of ways instead of pointlessly bitching.

                  You could start by putting your money where your mouth is and donating. That takes neither time nor skill!

                    Could be put right next to the "order a rudimentary set of leadership and socializing skills from eBay to found a succesful software group" button, I guess...
