Release notes for BlenderKit 3.7.0
🔄 Better Upload Handling: Not all textures packed correctly? No problem! Our updated upload process handles it like a champ!
🖼️ Thumbnail Rendering Completion Fix: We noticed that the GUI might not always indicate when automatic thumbnail renders had successfully completed. That's been corrected - now, every render's finish line is clearly visible in the GUI, ensuring you're always up-to-date with your thumbnail's status.
👌 UI Fixes: We've ironed out a few wrinkles in our UI, fixing an issue with the complexity display and sprucing up the upload interface for a smoother experience.
🚨 Thumbnail Download Failure Indication: A new feature sets a distinct icon when a thumbnail download task encounters an error, providing clear visibility of any issues.
🛠️ Enhanced Error Handling: No more scratching your head over server issues! Our system now raises a red flag for server response codes higher than 399, catching issues right away and letting you what was wrong.
🔎 More Detailed Error Reporting: Say hello to our beefed-up error handling process, delivering detailed error messages which will help with debugging and solving problems.
🚦 Failed Rating Visibility: Ever uploaded a rating and wondered if it went through? Wonder no more! Failed rating uploads are now shown more clearly, so you're always in the loop.
🎛️ Complexity Display Fix: We've addressed a rare but pesky bug that sometimes hid complexity from the wh enum UI. Now, complexity will always stand in the spotlight where it belongs!
⚙️ Updated Dependencies: We've brought all our dependencies up-to-date, providing you with the latest and greatest secure codebase.

Stones, rocks, pieces of wood can be sometimes photoscanned. But plants are still a domain of hard-core modeling. This really takes time, skill and precision, and a lot of observation what "natural" really means.
