Phoronix: Blender 2.49 Released With Great Changes
A new release of Blender, the immensely popular open-source 3D modeling software, is now available. This is not the much-anticipated Blender 2.5 release, but instead version 2.49, which brings forth several prominent changes and improvements while the developers continue work on the next major release...
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.
I'm still waiting for the 'Compensate for total lack of artistic skill or talent' button
OK then - smartypants - where's the 'Have a game project' button?
