How To Download Blender 2.8

Posted onby

Start Blender and check the splash screen. Note the version number in the upper right corner. Now go to and check the version number on the Download button. If both version numbers match, congrats! You have the newest and greatest Blender (and hence the latest Rigify). The much anticipated update of the Blender 2.80 milestone is here! With over a thousand fixes and several important updates that were planned for the 2.8 series. Most notable are the sculpting tools overhaul, support for NVIDIA RTX ray tracing in Cycles, Intel Open Image denoising, a better outliner, a new file browser and much more.

I was trying to re-download the original Blender 2.8, however it goes directly to the 2.81 download page instead.

How can I access downloads for previous versions of Blender and installers for older releases?
