Customers can download it here:
http://lumion3d.com/credits/Userboard/Dashboard.aspx

- New indoor and garden plants
- New vases, planters and plantpots
- New American road signs
- New postion coordinates type-in boxes
- Shadow map caching for faster rendering of spotlight shadows
- More responsive GUI, especially at low frame rates
- More graphical improvements and settings to tweak
- Optimized for more efficient memory usage
- Multi-language user interface (More languages are pending translation)

You can change the .xml for your country to localize it. If you want Lumion translated for your country and you can help with this let us know!

BUG FIXES IN 2.1 BUILD 4:
- The Lightmap material no longer flickers.
- Scene names are no longer incorrectly displayed as "AutoSave".
- The "Lock Position" command now also works for trees and plants.
- Shadow filtering artifacts are no longer present on Print/Poster resolution images.


URGENT: PLEASE READ THIS
In certain situations, a scene may appear to have been saved, but the next time you load it, it seems to have been overwritten by a scene that you have previously worked on. Apologies for the inconvenience - it's a really nasty bug, so please bear with the developers until the problem has been resolved.

AFFECTED VERSIONS
Lumion 2.1 Build 3 and 4 (and possibly earlier 2.1 builds as well)

RECOMMENDATIONS UNTIL THIS HAS BEEN FIXED
Restart Lumion after you have saved a scene.
Make backups of Scene files as soon as you have saved a scene.
The files are located in Documents/Lumion 2/Scenes



HOTFIX IF PLANTS ARE SWAYING TOO FAST IN THE WIND
Windows 32-bit: Please exit Lumion, unzip the attached Hotfix_PlantsVsWind_32-bit.zip and copy it to Lumion Installation Folder/Channels/.
Windows 64-bit: Please exit Lumion, unzip the attached Hotfix_PlantsVsWind_64-bit.zip and copy it to Lumion Installation Folder/Channels/.


MISSING SHADOWS: HOTFIX FOR MAC USERS WITH ATI CARDS
You should only follow the procedure below if you have a Mac with an ATI graphics card, and if certain object types such as trees don't cast shadows in Lumion:

1) Exit Lumion
2) Download the attached iMac_Shadows_WinXX-bit.zip file that matches your version of Windows (32- or 64-bit)
3) Unzip the zip file
4) Overwrite the following file in your Lumion installation folder:
    Lumion\Channels\89E051CA-4273-4EB9-89C8-5FD0CDA1B026.dll

Hi Remko and stuff,

Downloading as I am writing (before the rush hours). Exciting features (the co-ordinate enhancement is especially useful)

Interesting thing this translation (will definitely check it out). My countrymen are unfortunately very bad at foreign languages.

(Now if only I were sure of the meaning of some of the stuff of course :) )

I love what I've seen in Lumion so far.  Will probably be buying soon.  In order  to further test the capabilities, I'm downloading 2.1 now. Can you open models created in Lumion Free sp2.b8 in Lumion Free 2.1?

Thanks

We did not design the free version and paid versions to work together. You could try copying the scene files from the free version to the full version and see if it works. They both have their own folder in your user Documents folder.

I've prepared Polish translation.
You can get it here: http://www.lumion3d.pl/?page_id=787

It's still to be improved.
Any suggestions are welcome.
Switching to updated version is extremely easy :)

Maybe there should be another subject only with links to other translations when they come?

You should be able to install both 2.0 and 2.1

The free 1.0 files shoud be able to load in free 2.1 however you need to copy the files to the new folder. Lumion free 2

You can replace the language files and it will work. We have not integrated other languages yet because they are not fully complete yet because some menu change and new text needs to be translated. With this release we included 2 languages we could do ourselves and as soon as we have the updated files for other languages we will include them.

For mant languages we still depend on users from those countries to volunteer for the translation. It's no use hiring a translation bureau because the texts are all to specific to 3D. Arthur is working on a new forum topic specific about this topic so hopefully soon we'll have more translation files. The more languages we cover the better!
