Thanks for the information. Looks like a full selection of art tools.
Seems a little redundant having multiple versions of some of the software but if I used them, I would probably know that there are significant differences.
[EDIT]:( I see now, In the link you provided, they explained the "Top Down" approach of giving you all then you can pair it down rather than "Bottom Up" approach of letting you add what you want to a bare system.)[EDIT]
I imagine this is great news for those already familiar with the packages. Wish I were up on using blender, I never made it through the learning curve there.
I may still download this just to experiment and see what it's all about, may find some new tools I can learn and use.
Always great to know about new releases ... keep up the great work!
