I’ve been extremely sick the past few months, but Campbell Barton came to the rescue!  Thanks to him and several others (whose names I need to find and verify so I can attribute them too), bmesh is scheduled for 2.63.  I’m unspeakably grateful.  Bmesh has been a long journey, that involved three complete rewrites of the mesh code.  I did the first, Geoffry Bantle and I did the second, and I did the third using his excellent bmesh 2.0 kernel as a base.  Many others helped along the way.

Campbell and the others all deserve our thanks for stepping in to finish this third, final push.  Thanks to them, blender will have a fully industry-competitive mesh modeler.  Modeling has always been blender’s Achilles heel–but not anymore!  I’d also like to thank all those who donated to me over the years.

    As a casual programmer and someone suffering from a long-time devastating injury I understand your situation more than most.
    Sometimes I wish I lived a half (or whole) century in the future considering the (hopefully) far superior treatments…

    Thank you for everything!

    Thank you!!! It has been a long journey indeed, and a long wait for Blender users, but in the end we got there! Thank you for your resilience all these years, for all your hard work that laid the foundation for others to complete. Blender can look every other 3D package in the eyes now. Hope you get well, because you deserve to enjoy your accomplishment!

    I wasn’t aware that you have been this sick recently. Sorry to hear that. You guys have clearly put a lot of work into bmesh and it really shows. Congratulations on hitting the home stretch!

    Hope you get feeling better, you certainly deserve it.

    Thanks for your contributions to Blender! Only since BMesh has Blender felt like an upgrade from my ancient Maya 8 license.

    hallo, if you have acid problems with the stomach, just make the 1day purifying cure…

    disolve 60g of magnesiumsulfate

    in 750ml water ( you will find it cheap at any farmacy, its a salt, looks like seasalt)

    – eat in the mornig(not too much)
    – 14h – drink 250ml (1/3)
    – 16h – drink 250ml (1/3)
    – 18h- drink 150-200ml extra virgin olive oil with a lemon in it and lie 30min on the right(liver) side.
    -22h – drink the third part 250ml (1/3)
    23 – eat a portion of selfmade grieß with milk.
    the second day (if not before…)you will go directly to the toilet and that will be your home for the rest of the day…

    so you have to do this in weekend, please don’t programme bmesh while doing that…

    try this and be healthy… don’t trust doctors too much…
