Blender 2.83, the first LTS version of the software that comes with outstanding news

Blender 2.83

The software that we are going to talk about in this article is not new. It is also not new that it appears in most specialized media because it is a very popular open source 3D image editing, modeling, etc. program. What is news is the first thing we see when accessing the release note: Blender 2.83 It is the first LTS version in its entire history.

I think there will be very few readers who don't know what LTS stands for. They are short for "long-term support," which basically means that will be supported for longer than normal versions. In general, and it is expected that Blender will be the same, its developers will continue to release newer versions with new functions, but Blender 2.83 will be supported for a longer time and, ultimately, it will be a recommended version for production teams, such as the Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa LTS now launched just over a month ago.
