This is a crucial update that is recommended for all users and includes new updates released since 184.108.40.206 was originally released.
We implemented several new architectural changes that dramatically improve the stability and responsiveness of Gaea. Among many things, these improvements directly affect the viewport freezing bug that affected many users.
This build features an important new change to Gaea: a new rendering system that now uniformly powers both the 3D and 2D viewports, as well as the new Light baking node.
The new system is a preview of the full version that will be included in Gaea 1.2 (the next big update). It features accurate real world lighting (with the ability to modify it for other-worldly effects), with controllable soft shadows, ambient occlusion, and more.
We have improved color and gradient editors, and introduced a unified popup for atmosphere, water, and terrain settings.
Bleeding Edge builds are more stable than Beta versions, but not as stable and battle-tested like Production Ready builds.
With Bleeding Edge builds, you get access to newer features and enhancements faster. You can also provide early feedback for new features before they get rolled into the Production Ready builds.
Bleeding Edge builds install side-by-side with Production Ready builds, so you can safely install both without the newer builds affecting your normal work.
Please note files saved with Bleeding Edge builds may not open in older Production Ready builds.
Gaea 1.2 represents one of the largest sets of features added to Gaea since the original 1.0 release.
FURTHER DETAILS FORTHCOMING
WARNING: This version is not production ready yet. Please backup any .TOR documents before opening them in this Bleeding Edge build. Gaea 1.2 will alter your files in a way that may make them unusable in previous versions.
