1) Blender 2.8

proxies. Simple rigs work, spring production rigs still have more issues to
* Brecht worked on workspaces and UI.

work for sculpting.

* Some unit tests are failing, particularly on Windows and 32 bit (see bug
tracker). Developers are asked to fix them, it also helps platform
maintainers to check if things are running ok.
