The Release Date of Blender 2.8 Revealed
2 July, 2018
News

We’ve finally learned about the release date of Blender 2.8. The update will be released in several steps. First, the Alpha on July 2nd, the Beta on August 12th, September 19 will finalize the Python API of Blender 2.8 and on October 20th you’ll get your hands on the first release candidate of Blender 2.8.

The Code Quest is coming to a conclusion and there is much to celebrate. Not only did we make big leaps forward in development, but being together for three months to work on Blender has been a great experience for everyone. Some of us will go home next week, some will stay, but I already know we’ll miss being together.

The Blender 2.8 development doesn’t end with the code-quest though. Not even close. We still have a lot of work planned for the next months:

July 2nd: Alpha

  • End of the code quest.
  • Bug tracker open exclusively for crashes.

  • New default theme.
  • Disable all add-ons (based on bl_info Blender version).
  • Discourage add-on developers to port their work now since the Python API will still change.
  • Focus on completing existing features.

August 12: Beta Release

September 19: Final Python API

  • Call for add-on developers to update old add-ons.
  • Flexible date, at least 1 month before the release candidate.

October 20: Release Candidate

Greetings to all. All the way from Cameroon. I’m leaving 3ds Max to Blender since a couple of days.
So, please tell me, my Blender 2.80 is crashing every time I intend to use eevee and shading modes. Please, tell me what the problem could be?

2.8 isn’t released yet and this isn’t the site to look for help go to an actual blender forum.

Hi
Please Keep the workflow of 2.8 like 2.79b. Example: Z key for wire frame, Render Engine on the top of menu same in 2.79b.
