BiteFX V2-V4 Update History

Posted by Doug Brown on Fri, Jan 22, 2021 @ 17:01 PM

Below is a list of all the updates issued since we first release BiteFX V2.

If you haven't been keeping up with the updates, you may find it helpful to peruse the list to see what's been added since you last checked.

With each major upgrade we include all new animations in a "roll-up" build so, if you use the latest installer, you don't have to apply many updates to bring BiteFX up-to-date. However, these (no longer) new animations are not highlighted in BiteFX so they're not as easy to spot - this list can help you determine what has been added since you last looked.

Points at which roll-up builds were provided:
