WebGL on android devices!

Sketchfab.com now works on android devices(in webgl supporting browsers.. and i think ICS)!
Good job Sketchfab team!

here you can see it running on an acer iconia a500 (android ICS) in the Firefox Browser.. will try the other browsers later.

to try it yourself head over to http://Sketchfab.com

to see my gunship model – http://www.sketchfab.com/show/svshRsuBqE0c8MttKtcr3ly7fz1

these models were both done on Blender.

Checked other android browsers: loads on Opera Mobile, but not interactive. rest don't support webGL(Chrome, Android Browser, Dolphin HD)

Blender 2.63

Got the latest version of Blender yesterday..
took it for a spin..created this dune buggy

(i'm using the Blender UI Theme "√čnergy" by Studio LLB. get it here)
Notable new features that i enjoyed were:
A long awaited improvement in modelling called Bmesh.

"BMesh is the new Blender mesh system with full support for N-sided polygons instead of only triangles and quads.

In particular there is a new Dissolve tool to remove vertices, edges and faces without making holes in the mesh, a new Inset tool to inset faces, and a much improved Knife tool which takes advantage of N-gons to generate clear cuts. Tools such as subdivide and loop cut will also generate clean topology because faces no longer have to be triangulated."
(heres a video of it in action)

A full list of additions can be seen here in the official release notes

(windows, Mac OS, Linux and FreeBSD)
