The new mesh tools are awesome and finally it has a mirror tools almost like 3DsMax's, it will probably, with time, merge into Blenders's mirror modifier.

The truly amazing thing about this release is the improvement to the modeling assisting tools, like the display tools; and improvement to rigs. Align to normal is responding much better and the boolean tools are stable.


I just downloaded it to have something to play with while waiting for 2.8, did not expect it to be such a good release. I really recommend getting this one.
