BLENDER DEVELOPERS, PLEASE READ!!! I really do not know where to post this but, I have a helpful implementation that Blender users would love. The implementation is an auto-updater for blender builds. So, when a new blender version comes out, the user does not have to get on the site and download the whole blender software AGAIN. Some people just say, “Heck with the new version and continue to use the same version longer than they should.” or some people just say, “I need the latest feature of Blender to fully function.” while waiting to do projects on the new build of Blender. Not to mention, Blender will keep updating to new versions which can take up some space overtime.
This could either be a standalone program that could be made or maybe the Blender developers can add it to the next Blender version with a drop-down menu. If it would be easier for a standalone program, look at the Reallusion downloader for their character creation platforms. This would be cool because all you would have to do is click 1 button to update it. If users still wanted to have an option to have some of the old Blender versions, there would be an option to “Download & Install”. If the user wanted that version gone, all they would have to do is press the same button that said, “Download & Install” but instead it would say, “Uninstall”. It would say, “Uninstall”, well since that version would be already on the system lol. If the Blender Developers wanted to implement it to the Blender application, they could add another drop-down menu from the top. They could also add it to the already created Blender icon drop-down menu in the upper left-hand corner.
Either way, it would help people to focus on their creations rather than wondering if they need the next Blender version or not. This way, the clutter of having multiple versions of Blender will go to the wayside. Most other applications in the World have this already. Why not have one of the best’s free 3D software in the world have it? I think the users would love it and it would boost the positive vibes about Blender as a whole. People are always looking for the next Blender version to download. Why not have people always waiting on the next Blender update instead? Blender Developers, I look forward to seeing this auto-updater program being implemented for Blender. I hope the Blender Foundation will hear me out and help our fellow 3D artists!
