A new version of Blender for IRIX was recently released, putting us at version 2.49a of the excellent freeware 3D graphics application.
As it was fairly cool this morning, I gave the application a quick launch check on my Tezro (screenshot below).
The latest and greatest version can be had from the Blender website at http://www.blender.org/download/get-blender/.
A quick note — apparently the next release of Blender requires a newer Python than we currently offer in Nekoware (requires 3.1). Nekoware doesn’t currently have a Python maintainer, and there are a couple areas in the latest Python that require some porting work for IRIX. If anyone has any patches for an IRIX MIPSpro build of Python-3.1, please let me know!
