The Blender Foundation released today Blender 3.0 as the latest stable version of this powerful, free, open-source and cross-platform 3D computer graphics software for GNU/Linux, macOS, and Windows platforms.

Blender 3.0 is a massive update that introduces numerous new features and dozens of enhancements to the 3D modeling software.
