1.0 alpha6

What's an "alpha"?
This is not a full-function release and, most notably, does not provide functionality to allow the figure to be posed. It does include examples of all of the different tools and techniques that this software will provide to enable you to easily model the anatomy of a human figure, although some of these functions are not yet complete and are not necessarily in their final form.

This release also provides the 3D graphics community and the developer community with a preview of the functions that this human modelling application will provide. This is an Open Source project and it is hoped that artists and developers will be inspired to join in and help accelerate the completion of this innovative application. We are particularly keen to hear from additional talented Blender artists willing and able to help us deliver a more extensive set of authentic ethnic models. Good Python skills are always in demand to enhance the functionality.

MakeHuman Nightly Builds

What's a "Nightly Build"?
A nightly build  is a build that reflects the current state of the source code. Each night a script runs and creates an executable including the latest changes.
This is a great way to preview the latest improvements we're making and to test fixes to bugs that have been checked-in between releases.

If you're downloading a nightly please don't expect things to work 100%.  We make them available to you so you can try things out and report any bugs that you find.  This process helps us ensure our final releases are the best they can be.

Installing through apt

If you think you may want to install more times and want to conveniently upgrade to the latest nightly build later on, you can add the package repository to your sources. To do this, either use your linux distro's graphical approach to add sources, or edit /etc/apt/sources.list

To set up apt to manage the amd64 packages, add exactly the following at the bottom of your sources.list:

deb /

To set up apt to manage the i386 packages, add exactly the following at the bottom of your sources.list:

deb /

Once you have done this either use your distro's favorite way of updating the package list or run "apt-get update" on a console prompt. Now you should be able to install makehuman by either using some graphical means or running "apt-get install makehuman-nightly". At a later point in time when you want to update to the latest nightly build, run "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade".

Rendering Engine
