Pixar sequels

Whether it's godo ro bad, I'll leave up to you to decide, but I always welcome a new computer animated cartoon. Sequel or not. Granted, they are usualyl not as good. But given that these will be made several years after the first part, I give them the benefit of the doubt.

Blender 2.48: It isn't all about play

The Blender Foundation has released Blender 2.48. This release mainly improves on the game engine of Blender. Blender 2.48's game engine offers improved level design and better games logic editing. Logic components can now be grouped in "logic states" between which the game can switch seamlessly during operation. The physics simulation now uses the Bullet Physics library for modeling soft bodies. The fluid simulation controls and the functionality of the "wind" force field were also enhanced.
Sounds so cool! I wish was able to use it rather than just write about it...
