There are quite a lot of videos circulating, previewing various aspects of the new Blender user interface. It's all rather exciting and a little bit scary (some users really like Blender as it is), yet we can download the very latest beta builds of 2.8 and play around to see how it fits. I think this is a real effort to make the interface easier and faster to use, and Blender starts to look less like the ugly duckling of 3D programs and more the swan.
The video below demonstrates the new ability to edit multiple separate objects at the same time, which is surely going to speed up many an artist's's workflow.
Keep an eye on these new developments as they happen, there are interesting new features being added also, the future looks very bright for Blender.
