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:
BiteFX V2 & V3 for Windows Release/Update History
Note: If the update isn't linked in the following table, we don’t have a blog describing the update. Comprehensive information about each animation(s) described is provided in the BiteFX info topics in the software/app.
