There is so much to celebrate. Let’s start with a shortlist of our coolest achievements:

- Well, yes! We managed to implement Recurring payments. Enjoying Full Plan is easier than ever before.
- Thanks to your subscriptions, we sent over 7000€ to the Blender Development Fund. Good job on making every Blender artist a bit happier!
- We published several tutorial videos especially for you: What is Bevel?, How to Bevel?, Activation and basic usage in Blender 2.9.
- The amazing BlenderKit community released many more tutorials: this or this, and much more!

With every new release of Blender we also try to improve BlenderKit. Here's what we done for you this time.
Check our new video tutorial on how to activate and use BlenderKit in Blender 2.9
Simple card and recurring payments are coming to BlenderKit.
We created the first of the BlenderKit artists interviews with Julio Sillet, who has uploaded many great materials to our website.
All the models, brushes, add-ons and materials for you to browse online. And if you find what you were looking for? Get it.
We are happy to announce that BlenderKit database now offers over 1000 assets. These were uploaded by over 60 active creators.
BlenderKit is now just one click away, as a 'default' material library inside Blender 2.8
Literally every area you step in Blender requires you to learn a lot of new tools and information, and that's why we implemented several 'shortcuts' for convenience and speed.
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.
We just recently released a set of 9 texture-based PBR cycles materials.
We are trying to help you, blenderheads, to save your time while achieving best results possible. Wallpaper textures can really boost interior renders, but do you already have those on your hard drive?
As a late Christmas gift, we are releasing our BlenderKit mascot kitten for free. Now, you can make any scene insta-cute! The kitten is poseable and can be animated (by now 2.79 only, because of a hair-import bug in 2.8 beta).
BlenderKit introduces add-on for Blender 2.8. While there are still many changes in Blender happening, which may cause the add-on will work today and not tomorrow, the add-on should be mostly working fine, and we try to keep the new version updated with the latest Blender builds.
We are happy to announce the release of something we've been working on for a long time.
BlenderKit is a new online platform made for Blender users, creators, and developers. We hope to bring a new momentum into the open source world by introducing several innovations we've been working on.
